  • Product overview

    IL-6 in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of IL-6 protein in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatant.


    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.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Cytokine with a wide variety of biological functions. It is a potent inducer of the acute phase response. Plays an essential role in the final differentiation of B-cells into Ig-secreting cells Involved in lymphocyte and monocyte differentiation. It induces myeloma and plasmacytoma growth and induces nerve cells differentiation Acts on B-cells, T-cells, hepatocytes, hematopoeitic progenitor cells and cells of the CNS. Also acts as a myokine. It is discharged into the bloodstream after muscle contraction and acts to increase the breakdown of fats and to improve insulin resistance.
  • Involvement in disease
    Genetic variations in IL6 are associated with susceptibility to rheumatoid arthritis systemic juvenile (RASJ) [MIM:604302]. An inflammatory articular disorder with systemic-onset beginning before the age of 16. It represents a subgroup of juvenile arthritis associated with severe extraarticular features and occasionally fatal complications. During active phases of the disorder, patients display a typical daily spiking fever, an evanescent macular rash, lymphadenopathy, hepatosplenomegaly, serositis, myalgia and arthritis.
    Note=A IL6 promoter polymorphism is associated with a lifetime risk of development of Kaposi sarcoma in HIV-infected men.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the IL-6 superfamily.
  • Post-translational

  • ELISA Protocol Summary
  • The IL-6 standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of IL-6 were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the IL-6 standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 50%, plasma (heparin) 50%, plasma (EDTA) 50% and plasma (citrate) 50%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2).

  • The concentrations of IL-6 were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the IL-6 standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 50%, plasma (heparin) 50%, plasma (EDTA) 50% and plasma (citrate) 50%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean IL-6 concentration was determined to be 39 pg/mL in serum, 42 pg/mL in plasma (heparin), 43 pg/mL in plasma (EDTA), and 32 pg/mL in plasma (citrate).

  • The concentrations of IL-6 were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the IL-6 standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: stimulated RAW264.7 cell culture supernatant 1:50 and stimulated spleen cell culture supernatant 1:16. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean IL-6 concentration was determined to be 26,793 pg/mL in stimulated RAW264.7 cell culture supernatant, and 15,127 pg/mL in stimulated spleen cell culture supernatant.
