Product Summary
The Quantikine Mouse IL-1ra Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure mouse IL-1ra in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse IL-1ra and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural mouse IL-1ra 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 naturally occurring mouse IL-1ra.

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-1ra 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) 110 95-120
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 92 82-101
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 91 83-101
Serum (n=4) 95 88-104
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing or spiked with high concentrations of mouse IL-1ra in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.

Background: IL-1ra/IL-1F3
IL-1ra (IL-1 receptor antagonist) is a widely expressed acute phase protein that serves to dampen inflammation. IL-1ra binds to both IL-1 RI and IL-1 RII. It competitively inhibits IL-1 (alpha or beta) binding to IL-1 RI and does not trigger recruitment of the accessory molecule IL-1 R AcP or activation of IL-1 RI signaling. IL-1ra blocks the proinflammatory actions of IL-1 including Prostaglandin E2 and IL-6 release from endothelial cells, fever generation, thrombocytosis, the production of hepatic acute phase proteins, and neutrophil expansion and infiltration.

    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 on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
    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 on the shaker.
    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 on the benchtop. 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.
