Abcam’s IL-15 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IL-15 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.
This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IL-15 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-15 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IL-15 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-15 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

RelevanceIL-15 (114 amino acids) is a cytokine that regulates T and natural killer cell activation and proliferation. It has a predicted molecular mass of approximately 12.5 kDa. Human IL-15 shares approximately 97% and 73% amino acid sequence identity with simian and mouse IL-15, respectively. Both human and simian IL-15 are active on mouse cells. IL-15 was initially isolated from the simian kidney epithelial cell line CV1/EBNA. It has also been isolated from mouse and human cell sources. The cytokines IL-15 and IL2 share many biological properties and stimulatory activities (T, B, and NK cells). Both IL-15 and IL-2 stimulate mouse CTLL2 cells. In activated peripheral blood T lymphocytes, IL-2 is highly expressed but the expression of IL-15 is not detectable. There is no sequence homology between IL-15 and IL-2, though computer modeling indicates both possess a four alpha helical bundle structure. IL-15 competes for binding sites with IL-2, as both IL2 and IL-15 stimulate the growth of cells through the IL-2 receptor. IL-15 mRNA is expressed in many cell types and tissues including adherent peripheral blood mononuclear cells, fibroblasts, and epithelial cells, monocytes, placenta, and skeletal muscle.
Cellular localizationIsoform IL-15-S48AA: Secreted. Isoform IL-15-S21AA: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note: IL-15-S21AA is not secreted, but rather is stored intracellularly, appearing in the nucleus and cytoplasmic components.
