Cytokines are soluble mediators that impact a multitude of biologies including cell proliferation, survival, death, motility, cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions as well as immune response and leukocyte infiltration. Cytokines are intimately associated with acute and chronic diseases and response to vaccination. Interleukin 4 (IL4) is a cytokine of many biological roles, including stimulation of activated B-cell and T-cell proliferation, differentiation of naive helper T cells (Th0 cells) into Th2 cells, and of B cells into plasma cells. It is a key regulator in humoral and adaptive immunity. IL4 induces B-cell class switching to IgE and up-regulates MHC class II production. Overproduction of IL4 is associated with allergies. IL4, along with other Th2 cytokines, is involved in the airway inflammation with allergic asthma.

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.
