  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-8 (Interleukin-8) Monkey ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of monkey IL-8 in culture supernatant and serum (cynomolgus, baboon).

    IL-8 specific antibodies have been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and along with a biotin-conjugated anti-monkey IL-8 detection antibody and the microplate is then incubated at room temperature. Following washing with wash buffer a Streptavidin-HRP conjugate is added to each well, incubated at room temperature and then unbound conjugates are washed away using wash buffer. TMB is added and then catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after the addition of acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of IL-8 captured on the plate.

  • Notes

    Standard is recombinant protein produced in E.coli.

  • 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.

Thank you for contacting us.
The unit in the monkey kit is always the same as in the human kits. In this case it is pg/ml. Thus, 125 Units/ml is around 125 pg/ml.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us...

Thank you for your reply. My colleague is out of the office today but I am happy to help you with this in her absence.
I've asked the lab about the standard in this kit, and it is actually a recombinant human protein.
I hope this information ...
