Rat IL-6 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat IL-6 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat IL-6 in ell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate).
Interleukin-6(IL-6) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IL6 gene. Interleukin-6(IL-6) is involved not only in the hepatic acute phase response but also in adipose tissue metabolism, lipoprotein lipase activity, and hepatic triglyceride secretion. IL-6 is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays a critical role in bone resorption. IL-6 has been suggested to stimulate the HPA axis during immune activation independent of the input of hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing hormone(CRH). Interleukin-6(IL-6) is an immunoregulatory cytokine that activates a cell-surface signaling assembly composed of IL-6, the IL-6 alpha-receptor(IL-6Ralpha), and the shared signaling receptor gp130. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant rat IL-6, consisting of 188 amino acids with the molecular mass of 21.8kDa.
