Human IL-7 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IL-7 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human Interleukin 7 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (EDTA).
IL-7 a hematopoietic growth factor secreted by stromal cells in the red marrow and thymus. It is also produced by keratinocytes,1 dendritic cells,2 hepatocytes,3 neurons, and endothelial cells4. Interleukin 7(IL7) is a protein5 that in humans is encoded by the IL7 gene.6, 7, 8Knockout studies in mice suggested that this cytokine plays an essential role in lymphoid cell survival.9 IL-7 is a cytokine important for B and T cell development. This cytokine and the hepatocyte growth factor(HGF) form a heterodimer that functions as a pre-pro-B cell growth-stimulating factor. This cytokine is found to be a cofactor for V(D)J rearrangement of the T cell receptor beta(TCRB) during early T cell development.10
