IL-8 (bovine/ovine) AlphaLISA Detection Kit, 5,000 Assay Points

The AlphaLISA® immunoassay kit for bovine IL-8 enables the detection and quantitation of bovine IL8 (bIL8) in serum, buffered solution and cell culture supernatants using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps). This kit is 100% cross-reactive with Ovine IL-8.

Interleukin-8 (IL-8), also known as CXCL8, is a chemokine produced by monocytes/macrophages, epithelial cells, endothelial cells and neutrophils, in response to inflammatory stimuli. IL8 is a potent chemoattractant for neutrophils, basophils, and T-cells, and causes degranulation of neutrophil specific granules and azurophilic granules. In addition, IL8 also has a wide range of other proinflammatory effects. IL8 has been linked to various pathologies, including bovine and ovine pneumonic pasteurellosis, bovine salmonellosis, ovine chronic interstitial lung disease and others. This assay allows the quantification of IL8 in bovine samples and given 100% crossreactivity with ovine IL8, could also be used to detected sheep IL8.

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.
