Mouse CXCL16 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse CXCL16 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse CXCL16 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Chemokine(C-X-C motif) ligand 16(CXCL16) is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. Larger than other chemokines(with 254 amino acids), CXCL16 is composed of a CXC chemokine domain, a mucin-like stalk, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic tail containing a potential tyrosine phosphorylation site that may bind SH2. These are unusual features for a chemokine, and allow CXCL16 to be expressed as a cell surface bound molecule, as well as a soluble chemokine. CXCL16 is produced by dendritic cells found in the T cell zones of lymphoid organs, and by cells found in the red pulp of the spleen. Cells that bind and migrate in response to CXCL16 include several subsets of T cells, and natural killer T(NKT) cells. CXCL16 interacts with the chemokine receptor CXCR6, also known as Bonzo. Expression of CXCL16 is induced by the inflammatory cytokines IFN-gamma and TNF-alpha.2 The gene for human CXCL16 is located on chromosome 17p13. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant mouse CXCL16, consisting of 88 amino acids with the molecular mass of 9.9KDa.
