  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-29 (Interleukin-29) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IL-29 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IL-29 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-29 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IL-29 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-29 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Notes

    Optimization may be required with urine samples.

  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: Sandwich ELISAmore details
  • Platform


  • Function
    Cytokine with immunomodulatory activity. May play a role in antiviral immunity. Up-regulates MHC class I antigen expression. Ligand for the heterodimeric class II cytokine receptor composed of IL10RB and IL28RA. The ligand/receptor complex seems to signal through the Jak-STAT pathway.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the IL-28/IL-29 family.
