Product Information

KE00241 is a solid phase sandwich Enzyme Linked-Immuno-Sorbent Assay (Sandwich ELISA). The IL-29 ELISA kit is to be used to detect and quantify protein levels of endogenous IL-29. The assay recognizes human IL-29. An antibody specific for IL-29 has been pre-coated onto the microwells. The IL-29 protein in samples is captured by the coated antibody after incubation. Following extensive washing, another horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated antibody specific for IL-29 is added to detect the captured IL-29 protein. For signal development, followed by Tetramethyl-benzidine (TMB) reagent. Solution containing sulfuric acid is used to stop color development and the color intensity which is proportional to the quantity of bound protein is measurable at 450 nm with the correction wavelength set at 630 nm.

Background Information

Interleukin-29 (IL-29) is a cytokine belonging to the Type III interferon family, which has another two subfamilies IL-28A and IL-28B. They are also known as IFN-λ1, IFN-λ2 and IFN-λ3, respectively. IL-29 is produced predominantly by maturing dendritic cells and macrophages. IL-29 plays an important role in the immune response against pathogenes and especially against viruses by mechanisms similar to type I interferons. IL-29 receptor signals through JAK-STAT pathways leading to activated expression of interferon-stimulated genes and production of antiviral proteins.
