 Searchable Terms for IL16 purchase    MBS176490 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the IL-16 (IL16) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range of 31.2pg/ml-2000pg/ml in biological research samples containing IL16, with an estimated sensitivity of < 1pg/ml. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS176490 kit is based on IL16 antibody-IL16 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect IL16 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, IL16. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA). Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for IL16 elisa kit

   Principle of the assay: human IL-16 ELISA Kit was based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for IL-16 has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards(E.coli, P2-S130) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for IL-16 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB was used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the human IL-16 amount of sample captured in plate.
Background: Interleukin 16 (IL-16) is a cytokine that released by a variety of cells (including lymphocytes and some epithelial cells) that has been characterized as a chemoattractant for certain immune cells expressing the cell surface molecule CD4. By Southern blot analysis and PCR using a human/rodent somatic cell hybrid mapping panel, The human IL16 is encoded by a single-copy gene on chromosome 15. Using a combination of STS-content mapping, radiation-hybrid mapping, and genetic mapping, it was refined the assignment to 15q26.1. The mouse Il16 gene was mapped to chromosome 7 in a region showing homology of synteny to human 15q26.1. IL-16 was originally described as a factor that could attract activated T cells in humans, it was previously called lymphocyte chemoattractant factor (LCF), and the augmentation of IL16stimulation by CCR5 plays a role in regulation of Th1 cell recruitment and activation at sites of inflammation.

 NCBI Summary for IL16    The protein encoded by this gene is a pleiotropic cytokine that functions as a chemoattractant, a modulator of T cell activation, and an inhibitor of HIV replication. The signaling process of this cytokine is mediated by CD4. The product of this gene undergoes proteolytic processing, which is found to yield two functional proteins. The cytokine function is exclusively attributed to the secreted C-terminal peptide, while the N-terminal product may play a role in cell cycle control. Caspase 3 is reported to be involved in the proteolytic processing of this protein. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]
