  • Product overview

    IL-17A mouse in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-17A protein in mouse serum, plasma (citrate) and cell culture supernatant samples.

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • Notes

    IL-17A is a pro-inflammatory cytokine that is secreted by a subset of activated T cells. It is a disulfide-linked homodimer with both glycosylated and non-glycosylated forms. IL-17A induces stromal cells to produce pro-inflammatory and hematopoietic cytokines, and also enhances the surface expression of ICAM1/intracellular adhesion molecule 1 in fibroblasts.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab199081 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.


  • Standard curve comparison between mouse IL-17A SimpleStep ELISA® kit and traditional ELISA kit from leading competitor. SimpleStep ELISA kit shows a 9-fold increase in sensitivity.

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • Titration of PHA+PMA stimulated EL4 cell culture supernatant within the working range of the assay. EL4 cells were cultured in the presence of 1.5% phytohemagglutinin (PHA) and 10 ng/mL phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) for 48 hours. The cell culture supernatant was collected and measured in 2-fold dilution series. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD, n = 2) are graphed.

  • EL4 cells were cultured in the absence or presence of 1.5% PHA and 10 ng/mL PMA for 48 hours. The cell culture supernatants were collected and their dilutions (as indicated) were measured with this kit. Interpolated concentrations of IL-17a adjusted for sample dilution are graphed in ng of IL-17a per mL of supernatant (mean +/- SD, n = 2). Note that IL-17a is not detectable in the untreated EL4 supernatant samples.
