IL18BP Matched ELISA Antibody Pair Set,Human
Solid Phase Sandwich ELISA
Quantitative determination of Human IL18BP
1. Capture Antibody 1 mg/mL of mouse anti-Human IL18BP / IL18BPa monoclonal antibody (in PBS, pH 7.4). Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in PBS before coating. (Catalog: # 10357-MM02)
2. Detection Antibody 0.2 mg/mL of rabbit anti-Human IL18BP / IL18BPa polyclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) (in PBS, 50 % HRP-Protector, pH 7.4, store at 4℃). Dilute to working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.
3. Standard Each vial contains 47 ng of recombinant Human IL18BP / IL18BPa. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. After reconstitution, store at -20℃ to -80℃ in a manual defrost freezer. A seven-point standard curve using 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 3000 pg/mL is recommended.

Interleukin-18-binding protein (IL-18BP) is a constitutively expressed and secreted protein. IL-18BP is a cytokine receptor that belongs to the interleukin 1 receptor family. This receptor specifically binds interleukin 18 (IL18), and is essential for IL18 mediated signal transduction. IFN-alpha and IL12 are reported to induce the expression of this receptor in NK and T cells. This gene along with four other members of the interleukin 1 receptor family, including IL1R2, IL1R1, ILRL2 (IL-1Rrp2), and IL1RL1 (T1/ST2), form a gene cluster on chromosome 2q. The adjacently located family members IL18 Receptor 1 (IL18R1) and IL18 receptor accessory protein (IL18RAP) may also be important in the development of asthma and atopy. IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP) was only moderately elevated, resulting in a high level of biologically active free IL-18 in HPS. A severe IL-18/IL-18BP imbalance results in Th-1 lymphocyte and macrophage activation, which escapes control by NK-cell cytotoxicity and may allow for secondary HPS in patients with underlying diseases.
