Human IL-20 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-20 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-20 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interleukin-20(IL-20) is a protein belonging to the IL-10 family of cytokines. IL-20 is produced by activated keratinocytes and monocytes and transmits an intracellular signal through two distinct cell-surface receptor complexes on keratinocytes and other epithelial cells. By radiation hybrid analysis, the IL20 gene was mapped to chromosome 1q32, where it is tightly linked to the IL10, IL19, and MDA7 genes within a 195-kb region, the IL10 family cytokine cluster. IL-20 regulates proliferation and differentiation of keratinocytes during inflammation, particularly inflammation associated with the skin. In addition, IL-20 also causes cell expansion of multipotential hematopoietic progenitor cells.
