Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 2 Panel A, 10-Plex.

  • 96 & 32 Tests PN: HG2009A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant human G-CSF, GM-CSF, IFNα2, IL-1α, IL-3, IL-5, IL-7, IL-11, IL-12p40, and IL-13. 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 human IL-11.  Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Human Group 2.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex NR Basic Kit (96 Tests PN: P100001, 32 Tests PN: P100001T) 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 11 (Accession P20809) is a member of the IL-6 cytokine family. IL-11 activity has been observed in hematopoietic cells, the tissues of the central nervous system, and in the gastrointestinal organs. In concert with IL-11Rα, IL-11 is believed to activate downstream signaling pathways for the regulation of platelet maturation, adipogenesis, neurogenesis, and osteoclastogenesis, as well as placentation. IL-11 can increase the tumorigenic ability of cells. As over expression is associated with many types of cancer, inhibiting its signaling pathway may be effective in treating cancer. Recombinant IL-11 is currently on the market for cancer patients to prevent extreme thrombocytopenia.
