Human IL-34 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-34 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-34 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interleukin-34, or IL-34 is a protein belonging to a group of cytokines called interleukins. It is mapped to 16q22.1. The discovery of IL-34 protein in the red pulp of the spleen suggests involvement in growth and development of myeloid cells, consistent with its activity on monocytes. IL-34 is a recently discovered cytokine that acts on tissue resident macrophages and Langerhans cells upon binding the receptor for CSF-1, CSF-1R. It also can promote the differentiation and viability of monocytes and macrophages through the colony-stimulating factor-1 receptor. In addition, it promotes the development, survival, and function of microglia and Langerhans cells, therefore, this cytokine may predominately function in brain and skin biology.
