Human IL-15 ELISA Kit
Our Human IL-15 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-15 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Interleukin(IL)-15 is a cytokine with the ability to stimulate the proliferation activity of Th1 and/or Th2 lymphocytes. IL-15 is a novel cytokine whose effects on T-cell activation and proliferation are similar to those of interleukin-2(IL-2), presumably because IL-15 utilizes the beta and gamma chains of the IL-2 receptor. IL-15 can play a role in the initiation and outcome of acute and chronic rejection. Anti-IL-15 therapy in combination with classic immunosuppression therapy might thus be beneficial in the prevention of acute, and especially chronic, allograft rejection. The human IL15 gene is mapped to human chromosome 4q31 by fluorescence in situ hybridization.1 The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human IL-15, consisting of 114 amino acids with the molecular mass of 12.9KDa.
