45x Ab-conjugated beads (S4P7 - Canine IL-17A Ab-bead). PN: B511117A. One vial containing 100 µL of anti-canine IL-17A conjugated to AimPlex Bead S4P7

25x Biotin-detection Ab (Canine IL-17A Biotin-dAb). PN: B511117B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anticanine IL-17A.

Lyophilized Standard Mix-Canine Group 1 Panel A, 10-Plex. PN: KG10010. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant IFNγ, IL-2, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12p40, IL-17A, MCP-1, SCF and TNFα. Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

Application: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying Canine IL-17A.  Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Canine Group 1.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex NR Basic Kit (PN: P100001) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Interleukin-17A (also known as CTLA8) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine produced by activated T cells. IL17A regulates the activities of NF-kappaB and mitogen-activated protein kinases. This cytokine can stimulate the expression of IL6 and cyclooxygenase-2 (PTGS2/COX-2), as well as enhance the production of nitric oxide (NO). High levels of this IL17A are associated with several chronic inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis and multiple sclerosis. Diseases associated with IL17A include duodenal disease and paranasal sinus disease.
