Product Summary
The QuantiGlo Human IL-8 Chemiluminescent Immunoassay is a 5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure human IL-8 levels in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains the 72 amino acid variant of human IL-8 derived from E. coli as well as antibodies raised against this recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate recombinant human IL-8. Results obtained using natural human IL-8 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the QuantiGlo kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human IL-8.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Four samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Four samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

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.
