IL-8 (human) AlphaLISA Biotin-Free Detection Kit, 500 Assay Points

The AlphaLISA Human IL8 Biotin-Free Detection Kit is designed for the quantitative detection of human IL-8 in serum, cell culture medium, and other samples types using a homogeneous (no wash steps, no separation steps) assay. The biotin-free kit uses anti-DIG (anti-Digoxin) Donor beads instead of streptavidin Donor beads, which makes the kit compatible with high-biotin culture media and other sample types that contain high levels biotin (including brain/liver tissue extracts, milk and eggs).

Interleukin 8 (IL8 or CXCL8), a member of the ELR+ CXC chemokine family, is an 8.4 kDa polypeptide that forms homodimers in vivo. IL8 is secreted by several types of cells: fibroblasts, monocytes, macrophages and endothelial cells, among many others, in response to inflammatory stimuli. It is a chemoattractant and activator for neutrophils, directing them from periferal blood to the site of inflammation. It is also a potent angiogenic factor promoting endothelial and epithelial migration and proliferation in several cancers, and is associated with metastasis. It signals through two specific G protein-coupled receptors, CXCR1 and CXCR2, sharing ~77% identity.

AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA biotin-free assay, a DIG-labeled anti-analyte antibody binds to the anti-DIG-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
