Use in combination with:

Detection Reagent: Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 Biotinylated Antibody (Catalog # BAF535)

Standard: Recombinant Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 Protein (Catalog # 535-IN)

Measured by its ability to neutralize IL-8/CXCL8-induced chemotaxis in the BaF3 mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with human CXCR2. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-6 µg/mL in the presence of 50 ng/mL Recombinant Porcine IL-8/CXCL8.

Chemotaxis Induced by IL-8/CXCL8 and Neutralization by Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 Antibody. Recombinant Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 (Catalog # 535-IN) chemoattracts the BaF3 mouse pro-B cell line transfected with human CXCR2 in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). The amount of cells that migrated through to the lower chemotaxis chamber was measured by Resazurin (Catalog # AR002). Chemotaxis elicited by Recombinant Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 (50 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5351). The ND50 is typically 1-6 µg/mL.

Background: IL-8/CXCL8

Interleukin 8 was originally discovered and purified independently by a number of laboratories as a neutrophil chemotactic and activating factor. It was also referred to as neutrophil chemotactic factor (NCF), neutrophil activating protein (NAP), monocyte-derived neutrophil chemotactic factor (MDNCF), T-lymphocyte chemotactic factor (TCF), granulocyte chemotactic protein (GCP) and leukocyte adhesion inhibitor (LAI). Many cell types, including monocyte/macrophages, T cells, neutrophils, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, keratinocytes, hepatocytes, chondrocytes, and various tumor cell lines, can produce IL-8 in response to a wide variety of pro‑inflammatory stimuli such as exposure to IL-1, TNF, LPS, and viruses. IL-8 is a member of the alpha (C-X-C) subfamily of chemokines, which also includes platelet factor 4, GRO, IP-10, etc.

IL-8 is a potent chemoattractant for neutrophils. In addition, IL-8 also has a wide range of other pro‑inflammatory effects. IL-8 causes degranulation of neutrophil specific granules and azurophilic granules. IL-8 induces expression of the cell adhesion molecules CD11/CD18 and enhances the adherence of neutrophils to endothelial cells and sub-endothelial matrix proteins. Besides neutrophils, IL-8 is also chemotactic for basophils, T cells and eosinophils. IL-8 has been reported to be a co-mitogen for keratinocytes and was also shown to be an autocrine growth factor for melanoma cells. Recently, IL-8 was reported to be angiogenic both in vivo and in vitro.

Application: ELISA Sample Tested: Serum Species: Porcine

This antibody worked well as the ELISA capture.

Porcine IL-8/CXCL8 Antibody
By Anonymous on 11/08/2017
Application: ELISA Sample Tested: Serum and Plasma Species: Porcine

The antibody MAB5351 was used as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA for Porcine IL-8 along with the detection antibody, AF535. The calibrator for the assay was recombinant porcine IL-8, 535-IN. It was sensitive and specific.
