The Bioaim Human IL-17 ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of IL-17 in human serum and plasma. An antibody specific for human IL-17 was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any IL-17 present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-human IL-17 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of IL-17 present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Inflammation;
Interleukin 17( IL-17 ) Background: Interleukin 17 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine produced by T-helper cells and is induced by IL-23. To elicit its functions, IL-17 binds to a type I cell surface receptor called IL-17R of which there are at least three variants IL17RA, IL17RB, and IL17RC. IL-17 acts as a potent mediator in delayed-type reactions by increasing chemokine production in various tissues. Signaling from IL-17 recruits monocytes and neutrophils to the site of inflammation in response to invasion by pathogens, similar to Interferon gamma. In promoting inflammation, IL-17 has been demonstrated to act synergistically with tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-1. This activity can also be redirected towards the host and result in various autoimmune disorders that involve chronic inflammation, such as the skin disorder psoriasis.
