Human IL-17C ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-17C ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-17C in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
IL17C, also known as CX2, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL17C gene. IL17C is mapped to 16q24.3. The protein encoded by this gene is a T cell-derived cytokine that shares the sequence similarity with IL17. This cytokine was reported to stimulate the release of tumor necrosis factor alpha and interleukin 1 beta from a monocytic cell line. The expression of this cytokine was found to be restricted to activated T cells. IL17C is an essential autocrine cytokine regulating innate epithelial immune responses. It also plays an important role in the pathogenesis of inflammatory arthritis.
