  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Human IL-1 beta (Interleukin-1 beta) ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IL-1 beta in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants. (Human IL-1 beta concentration is pretty low in normal serum/plasma, it may not be detected in this assay).

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IL-1 beta coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-1 beta present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IL-1 beta antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of IL-1 beta bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • FunctionProduced by activated macrophages, IL-1 stimulates thymocyte proliferation by inducing IL-2 release, B-cell maturation and proliferation, and fibroblast growth factor activity. IL-1 proteins are involved in the inflammatory response, being identified as endogenous pyrogens, and are reported to stimulate the release of prostaglandin and collagenase from synovial cells.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the IL-1 family.
  • DomainThe similarity among the IL-1 precursors suggests that the amino ends of these proteins serve some as yet undefined function.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. The lack of a specific hydrophobic segment in the precursor sequence suggests that IL-1 is released by damaged cells or is secreted by a mechanism differing from that used for other secretory proteins.

Thank you for contacting us.

You will need 100ul of antibody for each well in 96 well plate. Say you are going to use all 96 wells so you will need final volume of antibody 9600ul (9.6 ml).

Thank you for your cooperation.

I have sent a request to lab for new kits and hoping to get an answer later this evening. I will confirm you the dispatch date.

I hope this info will be helpful.

Thank you for your email.

Regarding ab100562 have you used both kits? If not, then I will send you one replacement kit and one extra vial of HRP-standard. Could you let me know if you still have to use one kit of ab100562?

Could you check the HRP-streptavidin amount in ab100529.Is it OK?

Thank you for your email. I apologize for any inconvenience caused.

The volume 200ul is actually more than what is need for the assay; this extra volume is added to avoid any loss due to evaporation, insufficient centrifuging, etc. Actually on...
