  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Human IL-1 beta ab46052 in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-1 beta in Human serum, plasma, buffered solutions or cell culture medium.

    A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-1 beta has been coated onto the wells of the microtiter strips provided. Samples, including standards of known IL-1 beta concentrations, control specimens or unknowns are pipetted into these wells. During the first incubation, the standards or samples and a biotinylated monoclonal antibody specific for IL-1 beta are simultaneously incubated. After washing, the enzyme Streptavidin-HRP, that binds the biotinylated antibody is added, incubated and washed. A TMB substrate solution is added which acts on the bound enzyme to induce a colored reaction product. The intensity of this colored product is directly proportional to the concentration of IL-1 beta present in the samples.

    This kit will recognize both endogenous and recombinant Human IL-1 beta.

  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: Sandwich ELISAmore details
  • Platform


  • Function
    Produced 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 similarities
    Belongs to the IL-1 family.
  • Domain
    The similarity among the IL-1 precursors suggests that the amino ends of these proteins serve some as yet undefined function.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. 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 your reply.

If you diluted the controls in the recommended volume of diluent, then you should have ended up with the concentration that is indicated on the control vials. Was there no concentration listed on the vials? If there ...

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

For all three of those ELISA kits, there are standards and controls (4 vials of control per kit)provided and you should reconstitute those samples in the correct diluent depending on your sample types.
