    ab133993 is for simultaneous detection of 22 Mouse Cytokines. Suitable for all sample types.

    Targets: GCSF, GM-CSF, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-9, IL-10, IL-12 p40/p70, IL-12p70, IL-13, IL-17, IFN-gamma, MCP-1, MCP-5, RANTES, SCF, sTNF RI, TNF-alpha, Thrombopoietin, VEGF

    Cytokine arrays are an antibody-pair-based assay, analogous to ELISA, but using a membrane as a substrate rather than a plate. Capture antibodies are supplied arrayed/spotted on a membrane with each pair of spots representing a different analyte. Sample is added (0.2-1ml of 1 sample to each membrane), and then paired biotinylated detector antibodies and streptavidin HRP. The cytokine array is analyzed using the same methods as a chemiluminescent western blot. Comparison between samples can be by eye or using densitometry software for a semi-quantitative comparison.

  • The mouse cytokine antibody array containing 22 target proteins was used to determine the effect of an anti-inflammatory synthetic peptide (AISP) on the induction of cytokine production in mouse macrophages Raw264.7. Three million macrophages were plated in two sets in a six well plate and used in the study; one set was treated with vehicle alone while the other set was treated with the AISP at 20 µg/mL for 5 h. After 5 h of AISP treatment, the conditioned medium were collected and centrifuged at 14,000 rpm for 10 min and the supernatant was collected in a pre-cooled tube and stored overnight at 4 °C. The experiment was performed following the manufacturer’s instructions. All incubations were performed at 4°C for 12 h. After incubation and washing steps, the proteins were detected using the provided detection reagents. Membranes were exposed for 15 s. The representative membranes for non-AISP and the AISP treated macrophages are shown.
