Human CXCL14 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CXCL14 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CXCL14 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Chemokine(C-X-C motif) ligand 14(CXCL14) is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family that is also known as BRAK(for breast and kidney-expressed chemokine). This gene is mapped to 5q31.1. CXCL14 is constitutively expressed at high levels in many normal tissues, it has been found that fibroblasts are the primary source of CXCL14 and that CXCL14 is involved in the homeostasis of monocyte-derived macrophages rather than in inflammation. It is also a potent chemoattractant and activator of dendritic cells, is implicated in homing of these cells, and can stimulate the migration of activated NK cells. CXCL14 also inhibits angiogenesis, possibly as a result of its ability to block endothelial cell chemotaxis. In addition to it, CXCL14 is a potent chemokine for immature DCs, with a chemoattractive activity comparable to bacterial fMLP and MIP1A.
