Rat Interleukin 8 / IL8 (CXCL8) ELISA Kit is an ELISA Kit for the in vitro quantitative measurement of Rat Interleukin 8 / IL8 (CXCL8) concentrations in serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, cell lysates and other biological fluids.

Introduction Interleukin 8 (IL8 or chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 8, CXCL8) is a chemokine produced by macrophages and other cell types such as epithelial cells, airway smooth muscle cells and endothelial cells. Endothelial cells store IL8 in their storage vesicles, the Weibel-Palade bodies. IL8 is initially produced as a precursor peptide of 99 amino acids long which then undergoes cleavage to create several active IL8 isoforms. In culture, a 72 amino acid peptide is the major form secreted by macrophages. There are many receptors on the surface membrane capable of binding IL-8; the most frequently studied types are the G protein-coupled serpentine receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2. Expression and affinity for IL8 differs between the two receptors (CXCR1 > CXCR2). Through a chain of biochemical reactions, IL8 is secreted and is an important mediator of the immune reaction in the innate immune system response.
Target Interleukin 8 / IL8 (CXCL8)
Reactivity Rat
Tested Applications ELISA
Recommended dilutions Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Storage Shipped at 4 °C. Upon receipt, store the kit according to the storage instruction in the kit's manual.
Validity 12 months.
Stability The stability of the kit is determined by the rate of activity loss. The loss rate is less than 5% within the expiration date under appropriate storage conditions. To minimize performance fluctuations, operation procedures and lab conditions should be strictly controlled. It is also strongly suggested that the whole assay is performed by the same user throughout.

Sensitivity < 12.8 pg/ml
Standard Form Lyophilized
Detection Method Colorimetric
Assay Type Sandwich
Assay Data Quantitative
Sample Type Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, cell lysates and other biological fluids.
Availability Shipped within 5-12 working days.
Note This product is for research use only.

The range and sensitivity is subject to change. Please contact us for the latest product information. For accurate results, sample concentrations must be diluted to mid-range of the kit. If you require a specific range, please contact us in advance or write your request in your order comments.

Please note that our ELISA and CLIA kits are optimised for detection of native samples, rather than recombinant proteins. We are unable to guarantee detection of recombinant proteins, as they may have different sequences or tertiary structures to the native protein.
Standard 2000 pg/ml
