  • 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 cell lysates and tissue lysates.

    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.

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

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Produced 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 similarities
    Belongs to the IL-1 family.
  • Domain
    The similarity among the IL-1 precursors suggests that the amino ends of these proteins serve some as yet undefined function.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. 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...

ıl1beta mouse elisa kit ab100705

Average Good 4/5 (Ease of Use)
This kit ( ab100705 ) is not suitable for the detection of il1 beta levels from the serum of mice. We collected blood from ApoE-/- mice that are on high fat diet for 3 months in addition to ApoE-/- mice fed with chow diet. In none of these serum samples we obtained a promising result. On the other hand, the same kit detected il1beta from liver lysates as kit suggested.

Thank you for your email.
I can confirm that this kit will recognize the mature form (aa 118-269) of IL1beat.
Since the pro IL1beta also contains this amino acid sequence, I would expect the kit to also detect the pro-form. This has not been ...
