Human IL-6 Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary

The Quantikine Human IL-6 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase immunoassay designed to measure human IL-6 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains recombinant human IL-6 and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Natural human IL-6 showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards, indicating that this kit can be used to determine relative levels of natural human IL-6.

IL-6 (Interleukin-6) is a pleiotropic cytokine that acts in the acute phase reaction, inflammation, hematopoiesis, bone metabolism, and cancer progression. It contributes to chronic inflammation in obesity, insulin resistance, inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, sepsis, and atherosclerosis. IL-6 signals through a receptor complex of IL-6 R alpha and gp130. gp130 is also a component of the receptors for CLC, CNTF, CT-1, IL-11, IL-27, LIF, and OSM. Soluble forms of IL-6 R alpha are generated by both alternative splicing and proteolytic cleavage. In a mechanism known as trans-signaling, complexes of soluble IL-6 and IL-6 R alpha elicit responses from gp130-expressing cells that lack cell surface IL-6 R alpha.
