  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IL-12 p40 + IL-12 p70 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Mouse IL-12 p40 + IL-12 p70 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Mouse IL-12 p40 + IL-12 p70 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IL-12 p40 + IL-12 p70 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-IL-12 p40 + IL-12 p70 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 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Research areas

  • Relevance

    IL-12 is a heterodimeric cytokine comprised of p35 and p40 subunits. IL-12 plays a central role in mediating cell mediated immunity, promoting differentiation of CD4+ T cells to the Th1 subset and of CD8+ T cells into mature cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTLs). IL-12 is a potent stimulator of NK cells. IL-12 therapy has been suggested as a method of enhancing cytocidal anti tumour immune responses.
