Product Summary
The Quantikine Mouse IL-1 alpha Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse IL-1 alpha levels in cell culture supernates and serum. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse IL-1 alpha and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant mouse IL-1 alpha accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse IL-1 alpha showed dose response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse IL-1 alpha.

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.

The recovery of mouse IL-1 alpha spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Supernates (n=5) 102 92-109
Serum (n=6) 94 88-103
To assess the linearity of the assay, five or more samples spiked with various concentrations of mouse IL-1 alpha in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.

    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: IL-1 alpha/IL-1F1
IL-1 alpha (Interleukin-1 alpha) is a cytokine that is induced during microbial exposure and promotes the release of multiple inflammatory mediators and acute phase proteins. It also supports hematopoietic stem cell expansion, promotes neutrophil mobilization from the bone marrow, and promotes osteoclast formation. IL-1 alpha signals through a receptor complex composed of IL-1 RI and IL-1 RAcP. It also binds the decoy receptor IL-1 RII which associates with IL-1 RAcP but does not transduce signaling.

    Assay Procedure
    Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.

    Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
    1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
    2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

    3. 50 µL Assay Diluent
    4.   Add 50 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

    5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, Control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours.
    7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 4 times for a total of 5 washes.

    8. 100 µL Conjugate
    9.   Add 100 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours.
    10.   Aspirate and wash 5 times.

    11. 100 µL Substrate Solution
    12.   Add 100 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

    13. 100 µL Stop Solution
    14.   Add 100 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
