IL-10 Family Cytokines:

Indispensable in Infectious and Inflammatory Diseases

The interleukin-10 (IL-10) family of cytokines includes 9 members, namely IL-10, IL-19, IL-20, IL-22, IL-24, IL-26, as well as the more distantly related family members IL-28A (IFN-λ2), IL-28B (IFN-λ3), and IL-29 (IFN-λ1), which are also known as type III interferons (IFNs). These cytokines exert indispensable functions in regulating immune responses during infection and inflammation. IL-10 is a potent anti-inflammatory immunosuppressive cytokine that mainly acts on leukocytes. Other family members preferentially target epithelial cells, where they elicit innate defense mechanisms to limit the damage caused by viral and bacterial infections. However, uncontrolled inflammation can result in some diseases, such as psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Sino Biological provides powerful tools for studying the biology of IL-10 family cytokines and it enalbes you to fully understand the mechanisms behind these diseases in physiological conditions.

ELISA Detection of IL-10 Family Cytokines

ELISA is a well-established method that allows you to quantitatively detect the level of IL-10 family cytokines in different biological samples, such as serum, urine, plasma and cell supernatants. However, setting up your own ELISA could be very time-consuming, so choosing ready-to-use ELISA Kits is a better option.
