Mouse IL-23 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse IL-23 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse IL-23 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heprain)
Interleukin-23 subunit alpha(IL-23) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL23A gene. IL-23 is a heterodimeric cytokine consisting of two subunits, one called p40, which is shared with another cytokine, IL-12, and another called p19(the IL-23 alpha subunit). IL-23 is an important part of the inflammatory response against infection. It promotes upregulation of the matrix metalloprotease MMP9, increases angiogenesis and reduces CD8 T-cell infiltration. Recently, IL-23 has been implicated in the development of cancerous tumors. he International Radiation Hybrid Mapping Consortium mapped the p19 gene to chromosome 12(stSG47812).
