  • Product overview

    The Human CXCL14 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213771) is designed for the quantitative measurement of Human CXCL14 in cell culture supernatants, cell lysates, tissue homogenates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for CXCL14 has been pre-coated onto 96-well plates. Standards (Expression system for standard: E.coli; Immunogen sequence: S35-E111) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for CXCL14 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB is used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the Human CXCL14 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Notes

    Chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 14 (CXCL14) is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family that is also known as BRAK (for breast and kidney-expressed chemokine). This gene is mapped to 5q31.1. CXCL14 is constitutively expressed at high levels in many normal tissues; it has been found that fibroblasts are the primary source of CXCL14 and that CXCL14 is involved in the homeostasis of monocyte-derived macrophages rather than in inflammation. It is also a potent chemoattractant and activator of dendritic cells, is implicated in homing of these cells, and can stimulate the migration of activated NK cells. CXCL14 also inhibits angiogenesis, possibly as a result of its ability to block endothelial cell chemotaxis. In addition to it, CXCL14 is a potent chemokine for immature DCs, with a chemoattractive activity comparable to bacterial fMLP and MIP1A.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Potent chemoattractant for neutrophils, and weaker for dendritic cells. Not chemotactive for T-cells, B-cells, monocytes, natural killer cells or granulocytes. Does not inhibit proliferation of myeloid progenitors in colony formation assays.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Highly expressed in normal tissue without inflammatory stimuli and infrequently expressed in cancer cell lines. Weakly expressed in monocyte-derived dendritic cells. Not detected in lung or unstimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family.
