General description

The Human IL-6 ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of human IL-6 in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants and urine.


Recombinant Human I-L6


Human IL-6 ELISA kit has been used for determining the levels of IL-6 in biological samples.
For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Please refer to the attached General ELISA KIT Procedure (sandwich, competitive & Indirect ELISA)

Biochem/physiol Actions

IL-6 (interleukin 6) is a pleiotropic cytokine that plays an important role in host defense by regulating immune and inflammatory responses. Produced by T cells, monocytes, fibroblasts, endothelial cells and keratinocytes, IL-6 has diverse biological functions. It stimulates B-cell differentiation and antibody production, synergizes with IL-3 in megakaryocyte development and platelet production, induces expression of hepatic acute-phase proteins, and regulates bone metabolism. IL-6 is associated with various autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. High levels of IL-6 are present in the synovial fluid from rheumatoid arthritis patients. It is also linked with chronic inflammatory proliferative disease and B cell malignancy, Castleman′s disease, and plasmacytoma/multiple myeloma.
