The Quantikine Mouse IL-5 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse IL-5 in cell culture supernates and mouse serum. It contains Sf 21-expressed recombinant mouse IL-5 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant mouse IL-5. Results obtained using natural mouse IL-5 showed linea...r curves that were parallel to the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse IL-5.
IL-5 (Interleukin-5) is a secreted cytokine that is expressed as a covalent dimer. It is produced by activated Th2 cells, eosinophils, mast cells, and iNKT cells and promotes eosinophilic and basophilic differentiation and activation. IL-5 signals through a receptor complex containing IL-5 R alpha and the Common beta Chain/CD131 on eosinophils and basophils. Naturally occurring soluble forms of IL-5 R alpha retain the ability to bind IL-5 and limit its bioavailability.
