* Provided that the recommended microplates, buffers, diluents, substrates and solutions are used, and the assay is run as summarized in the Assay Procedure provided.

ELISpot kits are highly sensitive, microplate-based assays for the detection of cytokine secreting cells. This kit is designed for the detection and enumeration of mouse Granzyme B. Complete ELISpot kits are ready-to-run and require no assay development or refinement.

This ELISpot assay employs a capture antibody specific for mouse Granzyme B, pre-coated onto a PVDF-backed microplate. Appropriately stimulated cells are pipetted directly into the wells and the immobilized antibody in the immediate vicinity of the secreting cells binds secreted mouse Granzyme B. Following wash steps and incubation with a biotinylated detection antibody, alkaline-phosphatase conjugated to streptavidin is added. Unbound enzyme is subsequently removed by washing and a substrate solution (BCIP/NBT) is added. A blue-black colored precipitate forms at the sites of cytokine localization and appears as spots, with each individual spot representing an individual mouse Granzyme B secreting cell. The spots can be counted with an automated ELISpot reader system or manually using a stereomicroscope.


  • Detect and quantitate individual cells secreting mouse Granzyme B
  • High sensitivity - ELISpot assays can measure responses with frequencies well below 1 in 100,000 cells
  • No in vitro expansion of cells required
  • High-throughput - ELISpot assays use only a small number of primary cells

Background: Granzyme B

Granzyme family serine proteases are stored in the granules of cytotoxic T lymphocytes and natural killer cells. Granzymes contain one S1 protease domain and are synthesized as preproproteins. Granzymes are released toward pathogen infected or transformed target cells during cellular immune reactions. Target cell entry by granzymes is through perforin channels. Granzymes trigger apoptosis by caspase-dependent and -independent mechanisms. There are five granzymes (A, B, G, H and K) in human and many more in mouse and rat.
