|Product name||Rat Pro Interleukin 1, beta (IL1B) ELISA Kit|
|Applications notes||This Rat Pro Interleukin 1, beta (IL1B) ELISA Kit employs a two-site sandwich ELISA to quantitate pro IL1B in samples. An antibody specific for pro IL1B has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and anypro IL1B present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for pro IL1B is added to the wells. After washing, Streptavidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Following a wash to remove any unbound avidin-enzyme reagent, a substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of pro IL1B bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.|

|Usage notes||• Do not mix components from different kit lots or use reagents beyond the kit expiration date.
• Allow all reagents to warm to room temperature for at least 30 minutes before opening.
• Pre-rinse the pipet tip with reagent, use fresh pipet tips for each sample, standard and reagent to avoid contamination.
• Unused wells must be kept desiccated at 4 °C in the sealed bag provided.
• Mix Thoroughly is very important for the result. It is recommended using low frequency oscillator or slight hand shaking every 10 minutes.
• It is recommended that all samples and standards be assayed in duplicate or triplicate.

|Background||Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is one of the first cytokines ever described. Its initial discovery was as a factor that could induce fever, control lymphocytes, increase the number of bone marrow cells and cause degeneration of bone joints. At this time, IL-1 was known under several other names including endogenous pyrogen, lymphocyte activating factor, haemopoetin-1 and mononuclear cell factor, amongst others. It was around 1984-1985 when scientists confirmed that IL-1 was actually composed of two distinct proteins, now called IL-1α and IL-1β.These belong to a family of cytokines known as the interleukin-1 superfamily.Both IL-1α and IL-1β are produced by macrophages, monocytes and dendritic cells.|
