Immunofluorescence (IF/ICC) Antibody-Interleukin

Background

Immunofluorescence is a powerful technique that utilizes fluorescent-labeled antibodies to detect specific target antigens. Immunofluorescence uses a single, primary antibody, chemically linked to a fluorophore. The primary antibody recognizes the target antigen and binds to a specific epitope. The attached fluorophore can be detected via fluorescent microscopyThe technique is very sensitive and versatile and finds numerous applications in the fields of immunology, cell morphology, genetics, diagnostics and histopathology.
Interleukins are a type of cytokines that were first seen to be expressed by leukocytes. The term 'interleukin' describe a number of secreted molecules produced by leukocytes, a variety of polypeptides that act specifically as mediators between leucocytes. . Interleukin (IL) has been used to describe a group of cytokines with complex immunomodulatory functions - including cell proliferation, maturation, migration and adhesion.
