Human IL-28A ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-28A ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-28A in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interferon lambda-2, also called IFNL2 or IL28A is a class II cytokine receptor ligand related to type I interferons. This gene is mapped to 19q13.2. This gene encodes a cytokine distantly related to type I interferons and the IL-10 family. This gene, interleukin 28B(IL28B), and interleukin 29(IL29) are three closely related cytokine genes that form a cytokine gene cluster. It up-regulates MHC class I antigen expression. It also displays antitumor activity. The ligand/receptor complex seems to signal through the Jak-STAT pathway. This gene seems not to be essential for early virus-activated host defense in vaginal infection, but plays an important role in Toll-like receptor(TLR)-induced antiviral defense. It seems play a significant role in the antiviral immune defense in the intestinal epithelium.
