  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-1 beta Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of mouse IL-1 beta in plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse IL-1 beta coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-1 beta present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse IL-1 beta 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-1 beta bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    We have not been able to detect the endogenous Mouse IL-1 beta in normal serum with ab100704, only in serum spiked with Mouse IL-1 beta.

    Get higher sensitivity in only 90 minutes with Mouse IL-1 beta ELISA Kit (ab197742) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • PlatformMicroplate


  • FunctionProduced 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 similaritiesBelongs to the IL-1 family.
  • DomainThe similarity among the IL-1 precursors suggests that the amino ends of these proteins serve some as yet undefined function.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. 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.

It is possible to use the non-lysate kit ab100704 (IL-1 beta (Interleukin-1 beta) Mouse ELISA Kit) and use your own lysis buffers (non-denaturing, with a mild detergent like RIPA/NP40/Triton X). The cell lysate kit (ab100705) contains this bu...

It is not clear if the kit is detecting IL-1 beta free or bound and we do not have any components or buffers that are specifically made to unbind IL-1 beta from the receptor.
