QC31, Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 766 for Human IL-34 - Please Inquire
The Quantikine Human IL-34 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA
designed to measure IL-34 in cell culture supernates, cell lysates,
serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant
human IL-34 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This
immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human
IL-34. Results obtained using natural human IL-34 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-34.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of a known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of a known concentration
were tested in separate assays to determine inter-assay precision.
Assays were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of
The recovery of human IL-34 spiked to levels throughout the range
of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Supernates (n=4)
EDTA Plasma (n=4)
Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked
with high concentrations of human IL-34 were serially diluted with the
appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the
dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Interleukin 34 (IL-34; also known as uncharacterized protein C16orf77) is secreted as a homodimer consisting of 39 kDa monomers. It belongs to no known cytokine family. Human IL-34 is synthesized as a 242 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 20 aa signal sequence and a 222 aa mature chain. The mature chain contains one potential site of N-linked glycosylation. Human IL-34 is 71% identical to mouse IL-34 on the amino acid level.
IL-34 is expressed in various tissues, including the heart, brain, liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, testes, ovary, small intestine, prostate, and colon, and is most abundant in the spleen. The receptor for IL-34 is colony-stimulating factor 1 receptor (CSF-1R). IL-34 stimulates monocyte proliferation. In functional studies, IL-34, like CSF-1, the other ligand for CSF-1R, stimulated phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase-1 and -2 (ERK1/2) in human monocytes. In addition, IL-34 promoted the formation of the colony-forming unit-macrophage (CFU-M), a macrophage progenitor, in human bone marrow cultures.
