  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-8 (Interleukin-8) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IL-8 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernates.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IL-8 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipette into the wells and IL-8 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IL- 8 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-8 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • FunctionIL-8 is a chemotactic factor that attracts neutrophils, basophils, and T-cells, but not monocytes. It is also involved in neutrophil activation. It is released from several cell types in response to an inflammatory stimulus. IL-8(6-77) has a 5-10-fold higher activity on neutrophil activation, IL-8(5-77) has increased activity on neutrophil activation and IL-8(7-77) has a higher affinity to receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2 as compared to IL-8(1-77), respectively.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family.
  • Post-translational
    Several N-terminal processed forms are produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from at least peripheral blood monocytes, leukcocytes and endothelial cells. In general, IL-8(1-77) is referred to as interleukin-8. IL-8(6-77) is the most promiment form.

To prepare 50 ng/ml of stock standard please add 400 μL Assay Diluent A for serum/plasma samples. Please check refer to page 8 of the online protocol for further instructions on standard preparation.

Thank you for contacting us. I apologise for the delay.
Unfortunately any of these kits have been tested with human ascites. However, they should work as they are suitable for all body fluids.
The only problem I would suspect is the high conc...
