Rat Cytokine Antibody Array Kit


R&D Systems Rat Cytokine Array (Catalog # ARY008) is a rapid, sensitive, and economical tool to simultaneously detect the relative expression of 29 cytokine and chemokines in a single sample. No specialized equipment is necessary.

Simultaneously detect the levels of these cytokines in a single sample.
CXCL1/CINC-1 IL-1ra L-Selectin
CXCL3/CINC-2 alpha/beta IL-2 CXCL9/MIG
CINC-3 IL-3 CCL3/MIP-1 alpha
CNTF IL-4 CCL20/MIP-3 alpha
Fractalkine/CXC3CL1 IL-6 CCL5/RANTES
GM-CSF IL-10 CXCL7/Thymus Chemokine
IFN-gamma IL-17 TNF-alpha
IL-1 alpha CXCL10/IP-10 VEGF
IL-1 beta LIX  

General Assay Principle

Carefully selected capture antibodies have been spotted in duplicate on nitrocellulose membranes. Cell culture supernatant, cell lysate, tissue lysate, serum, or plasma samples are diluted and mixed with a cocktail of biotinylated detection antibodies. The sample/antibody mixture is then incubated with the array. Any cytokine/detection antibody complex present is bound by its cognate immobilized capture antibody on the membrane. Streptavidin-Horseradish Peroxidase and chemiluminescent detection reagents are added, and a signal is produced in proportion to the amount of cytokine bound. Chemiluminescence is detected in the same manner as a Western blot.
