Interleukin 12 (IL-12) belongs to IL-12 family consisting IL-12, IL-23, IL-27, IL-35. IL-12 is encoded by two separate genes, IL-12A (p35) and IL-12B (p40). The active heterodimer (referred to as p70 or IL-12 p70) and a homodimer of p40 are formed following protein synthesis. In response to antigenic stimulation, IL12 proteins are produced by dendritic cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and B-cells. It is known to stimulate the production of interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) and tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α) from T cells and natural killer (NK) cells, while reducing IL-4 mediated suppression of IFN-γ. IL12 is thought to be one of the cytokines that plays an essential role in inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, allograft rejection, and atherosclerosis. This kit is designed to detect Interleukin 12 (IL-12) p70 as an active heterodimer in procine serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-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.
