Details for:  Interleukin-2 (IL-2) High Sensitivity ELISA
This High Sensitivity ELISA enables the analysis of Interleukin- 4 in low concentrations from serum, plasma, or cell culture samples. The High Sensitivity ELISA Kits offer accurate quantification below conventional ELISA limits. This is made possible by their inherent design by amplifying the signal.Interleukin-2 (IL-2) plays a central role in the activation and proliferation of lymphocytes that have been primed by antigens. IL-2 plays a pivotal role in for the expansion of most T-cells, natural killer cells and Bcells during certain phases of their response. IL-2 is a 15 kDa glycoprotein encoded by a single gene located in the q26-28 region of human chromosome 4. IL-2 gene expression is regulated at the transcriptional level by several activation pathways. Antigen-specific proliferation of helper and cytotoxic T-lymphocytes following stimulation is critically dependent on IL-2 expression, secretion, and binding to receptors for IL-2 induced in an autocrine fashion on the surface of T-cells. Apart from its most important role to mediate antigen-specific T-lymphocyte proliferation, IL-2 modulates the expression of interferon-gamma and major histocompatibility antigens, stimulates proliferation and differentiation of activated B-cells, augments natural killer cell activity and inhibits granulocyte-macrophage colony formation. Alterations in the ability of T-cells to synthesize IL-2 have been observed in physiologic and pathologic states. Because of the central role of IL-2 in immune response, IL-2 turned out to be a very important molecule for diagnostic and therapeutic implications. IL-2 displays antitumoral effects, thus being used in cancer therapy. Monitoring of IL-2 levels in serum provides more detailed insights in several pathological situations such as cancer, infectious diseases, transplant rejection, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus and type I diabetes.
