Human IL-2 ELISA Kit
Our Human IL-2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate).
Interleukin-2(IL2), formerly referred to as T-cell growth factor, is a powerfully immunoregulatory lymphokine that is produced by lectin- or antigen-activated T cells. It is produced not only by mature T lymphocytes on stimulation but also constitutively by certain T-cell lymphoma cell lines. The lymphokine interleukin-2(IL-2) is responsible for autocrine cell cycle progression and regulation of immune responses. IL-2 expression in mature thymocytes and T cells has been found to be tightly controlled by monoallelic expression. IL-2 can act as a growth hormone for both B and T lymphocytes. The human gene for interleukin 2(IL2) is assigned to chromosome 4. Human IL-2 is a 15.5KDa glycoprotein, consisting of 153 amino acids in precursor form and 133 amino acids in mature form.
