Human IL-3 ELISA Kit
Our Human IL-3 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IL-3 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate).
The gene IL-3 encodes interleukin 3, a hematopoietic colony-stimulating factor(CSF) that is capable of supporting the proliferation of a broad range of hematopoietic cell types. Interleukin-3(IL-3), a protein of 140 amino acids, is chemically synthesized by means of an automated peptide synthesizer and is shown to have the biological activities attributed to native IL-3. The cDNA sequence for murine interleukin-3, one of the colony stimulating factors that regulate haematopoiesis, codes for a polypeptide of 166 amino acids including a putative signal peptide. The mouse IL 3 gene is located on chromosome 11. The human gene encoding IL 3 is tandemly arrayed on the long arm of chromosome 5. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human IL-3, consisting of 133 amino acids with the molecular mass of 15KDa.
