Human IL-37/IL1F7 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-37/IL1F7 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-37 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interleukin 37(IL-37) also named IL1F7, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL1F7 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the interleukin 1 cytokine family. And it is mapped to 2q13. In vitro expression analysis showed that IL-37 was a secretory protein. And IL-37 could play an important role in the link between innate and adaptive immunity and may be useful for tumor immunotherapy. Meanwhile, IL-37 inhibits the production of inflammatory cytokines in peripheral blood mononuclear cells of patients with systemic lupus erythematosus. In addition, IL-37 can emerged as a dual-function cytokine with intra- and extracellular properties for suppressing innate inflammation. Furthermore, IL-37 is a new anti-inflammatory cytokine that plays an important role in protecting against tissue injury during infections via limiting immune and inflammatory reactions.
