  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Human High Sensitivity IL-2 ELISA is to be used for the in-vitro quantitative determination interleukin-2 (IL-2) in Human sera, plasmas, buffered solutions or cell culture media.

    A monoclonal antibody specific for IL-2 has been coated onto the wells of the microtiter strips provided. Samples, including standards of known IL-2 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-2 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-2 present in the samples.

    This kit will recognize both endogenous and recombinant Human IL-2.

  • FunctionProduced by T-cells in response to antigenic or mitogenic stimulation, this protein is required for T-cell proliferation and other activities crucial to regulation of the immune response. Can stimulate B-cells, monocytes, lymphokine-activated killer cells, natural killer cells, and glioma cells.
