Product Summary

The Quantikine Human IL-33 Immunoassay is a 4.0 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure IL-33 in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, tissue lysates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human IL-33 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human IL-33. Results obtained using natural human IL-33 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine® kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human IL-33.


Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision over one lot of kit components. Assays were performed by at least three technicians

Background: IL-33

IL-33 (Interleukin-33) is released from physically damaged or necrotic cells. It triggers Th2-biased immune cell activation at sites of inflammation as well as regulatory T cell and M2 macrophage expansion. It additionally induces angiogenesis, promotes tumor cell migration and invasion, limits cardiac myocyte hypertrophy, and limits the development of atherosclerotic plaques. IL-33 signals through a receptor complex composed of ST2 and IL-1 RAcP. IL-1 RAcP also associates with IL-1 RI, IL-1 RII, IL-1 R6, and SCF R/c-kit. Soluble isoforms of ST2 and IL-1 RAcP function as decoy receptors that regulate IL-33 bioactivity.
