Product Summary

The Quantikine Mouse/Rat IL-33 immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure IL-33 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse mature IL-33 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate both recombinant mouse and rat IL-33. Results obtained using natural IL-33 showed dose response 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 natural IL-33.


The recovery of IL-33 spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Mouse Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 104 91-116
Mouse EDTA Plasma (n=4) 102 96-113
Mouse Heparin Plasma (n=4) 99 83-111
Mouse Serum (n=4) 90 81-103
Rat Cell Culture Supernates (n=4) 104 94-116
Rat EDTA Plasma (n=4) 93 83-100
Rat Heparin Plasma (n=4) 93 87-99
Rat Serum (n=4) 93 86-101


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of IL-33 in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and assayed.

Background: IL-33

IL-33 (Interleukin-33) is released from physically damaged or necrotic cells. It triggers Th2-biased immune cell activation at sites of inflammation as well as regulatory T cell and M2 macrophage expansion. It additionally induces angiogenesis, promotes tumor cell migration and invasion, limits cardiac myocyte hypertrophy, and limits the development of atherosclerotic plaques. IL-33 signals through a receptor complex composed of ST2 and IL-1 RAcP. IL-1 RAcP also associates with IL-1 RI, IL-1 RII, IL-1 R6, and SCF R/c-kit. Soluble isoforms of ST2 and IL-1 RAcP function as decoy receptors that regulate IL-33 bioactivity.

Mouse/Rat IL-33 Quantikine ELISA Kit
By Nicole Brown on 01/07/2019
Sample Tested: Kidney tissue

Mice underwent cisplatin-induced acute kidney injury (AKI) and IL-33 was measured in the kidneys every week for 4 weeks. We found an increase in IL-33 each week, which was prevented by knockout of IL-33. Interestingly, mice that were +/- for IL-33 also had no detectable IL-33 in the kidneys
