IL-6 (human) AlphaLISA Biotin-free Detection Kit, 5,000 Assay Points

The AlphaLISA Human IL-6 Biotin-Free Detection Kit is designed for the quantitative detection of human IL-6 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 6 (IL6) is a ~22 kDa pleiotropic cytokine that acts not only on the immune system, but also affects many physiological events in various organs. IL6 exerts pro- or anti-inflammatory effects, depending on the target cell analyzed and the in vivo environmental circumstances. IL6 is a differentiation and proliferation factor for B and T cells, and acts as a migration factor on monocytic cells. It is the major activator of acute-phase protein expression in the liver, a hematopoietic factor, and acts as a survival factor on neuronal cells. IL6 signals through binding to the gp130/ IL-6R receptor complex, leading to the activation of JAK/STAT, MAPK and PI3K cascades.

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.
