Mouse IL-20 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse IL-20 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse IL-20 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
IL-20, also known as Interleukin 20 or Zcyto10, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL20 gene. This gene is mapped to 1q32.1. IL-20 is a protein belonging to the IL-10 family of cytokines. This cytokine has been shown to transduce its signal through signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) in keratinocytes. A specific receptor for this cytokine is found to be expressed in skin and upregulated dramatically in psoriatic skin, suggesting a role for this protein in epidermal function and psoriasis. IL-20 regulates proliferation and differentiation of keratinocytes during inflammation, particularly inflammation associated with the skin. In addition, IL-20 also causes cell expansion of multipotential hematopoietic progenitor cells.
