Applications
  •  
    Recommended
    Concentration
    Sample
  • Western Blot
    1 µg/mL
    Recombinant Feline IL-8/CXCL8 (Catalog # 2277-FL)
  • Neutralization
    Measured by its ability to neutralize IL-8/CXCL8-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CXCR2. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.08-0.32 µg/mL in the presence of 20 ng/mL Recombinant Feline IL-8/CXCL8.
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Data Examples
Chemotaxis Induced by
IL-8/CXCL8 and Neutral­ization by Feline IL-8/CXCL8 Antibody.
Recombinant Feline CXCL8/IL-8 (Catalog # 2277-FL) chemo­attracts the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CXCR2 in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through to the lower chemotaxis chamber was measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Feline IL-8/CXCL8 (20 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Rat Anti-Feline IL-8/CXCL8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2277). The ND50 is typically 0.08-0.32 µg/mL.

Background: IL-8/CXCL8

Interleukin 8 (IL-8), also named CXCL8, monocyte-derived neutrophil chemotactic factor (MDNCF), neutrophil-activating protein 1 (NAP-1), neutrophil-activating factor (NAF) and granulocyte chemotactic peptide (GCP), belongs to the Glu-Leu-Arg motif containing (ELR+) CXC chemokine family and has been designated CXCL8. IL-8 is a potent neutrophil chemoattractant that recruits neutrophils to sites of inflammation. IL-8 also activates neutrophil functions and promotes angiogenesis. The biological activites of IL-8 is mediated by two types of G protein-coupled chemokine receptors, CXCR1 and CXCR2 (1, 2). In normal tissues, IL-8 expression and secretion is barely detectable. Upon stimulation by a wide range of pro-inflammatory signals including exposure to IL-1, TNF, bacterial or viral products, IL-8 production is rapidly induced in many different cell types (3, 4). Feline IL-8 encodes a 101 amino acid (aa) precursor protein with a putative 22 aa signal peptide. It shares 61% and 76% aa sequence identity with human and canine IL-8, respectively.
