Product Summary

The Quantikine Mouse TARC Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse TARC levels in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse TARC and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. Results obtained for naturally occurring mouse TARC showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse TARC.


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

Background: CCL17/TARC

CCL17/TARC is a chemokine that interacts with CCR4 and CCR8 to induce the chemoattraction of activated Th2 cells, basophils, and NK cells. It is produced by thymic dendritic cells, lymph node dendritic cells, monocytes, CD4+ T cells, keratinocytes, fibroblasts, bronchial epithelial cells, and Reed-Sternberg cells. CCL17 promotes Th2 cell recruitment to sites of inflammation and induces platelet aggregation and degranulation.
