PRODUCT SUMMARY
Complete ELISpot kits are highly sensitive, microplate-based assays for the detection of cytokine secreting cells. Kits are available for detection and enumeration of a single analyte or two analytes simultaneously. Complete ELISpot kits are ready-to-run and require no assay development or refinement. ELISpot Development Modules contain the basic components required to develop an ELISpot assay. They offer an economical alternative to buying separate antibodies.

ELISpot development modules are an alternative to ELISpot kits. A basic understanding of ELISpot assay development is required for the successful use of these reagents. Each investigator should optimize the coating conditions, the assay sensitivity, the type of enzyme and substrate, as well as the concentrations of the capture and detection antibodies to achieve desired results. The analyte-specific ELISpot Development Module and the ELISpot Blue Color Module contain the necessary components for analyte detection and visualization, respectively. These modules can be used together but are sold separately. Each module contains enough reagents for at least five 96-well microplates.


PRODUCT FEATURES

  • An economical alternative to ELISpot Kits
  • Optimized capture and detection antibody pairings and recommended concentrations save lengthy development time
  • Generic development protocols provide direction to start an optimization protocol
  • Customize the assay to your specific needs

Background: IL-8/CXCL8

Interleukin-8 (IL-8), also known as CXCL8, is a chemokine that is upregulated at sites of inflammation where it promotes neutrophil infiltration and activation. IL-8 can form homodimers and heterodimers with CXCL4/PF4. Its bioactivity is regulated by proteolytic truncations, citrullination, and the decoy receptor DARC. IL-8 signals through CXCR1/IL-8 RA, which is also used by CXCL6, and through CXCR2/IL-8 RB, which is used by multiple CXC chemokines. IL-8 also binds to Serpin A1/alpha-1 Antitrypsin which prevents IL-8 interaction with CXCR1.

FAQs

  1. Are mouse or rat CXCL8/IL-8 products offered?

    • Mouse and rat do not have a gene which encodes CXCL8/IL-8. In mouse, the functional homologs to human CXCL8/IL-8 are CXCL1/KC and CXCL2/MIP-2. In rat, the functional homolog to CXCL8/human IL-8 is CXCL3/CINC-2.
