Product Description specificalPrinciple of the assay: human CCL18 ELISA Kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for CCL18 has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards(E.coli, A21-A89) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for CCL18 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB are used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the human CCL18 amount of sample captured in plate.
Background: Chemokine (C-C motif) ligand 18 (CCL18) is a small cytokine belonging to the CC chemokine family that was previously called PARC (pulmonary and activation-regulated chemokine). CCL18 is approximately 60% identical in amino acid sequence to CCL3. By analysis of a previously mapped CCL18 from 17q11.2, it is determined that the PARC gene is located within 1 of the 2 clusters of CC chemokine genes in this region. It is expressed at high levels in lung and at lower levels in certain lymphoid tissues, such as the lymph nodes, and is chemotactic for activated T cells and nonactivated lymphocytes. Beside, CCL18 recruits Th2 cells and basophils and may play a predominant role in allergic asthma.
