Application: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human Mouse IL-10. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Mouse Group 1. To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Mouse/Rat Basic Kit (96 Tests PN: P200201, 32 Tests PN: P200201T) 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-10 (IL-10)/cytokine synthesis inhibitory factor (CSIF) (Accession P18893) is a member of the Interleukin-10 subfamily and class 2 cytokine. IL-10 is predominantly expressed by monocytes and to a smaller degree, lymphocytes.In mice, IL-10 has also been shown to be produced in mast cells. IL-10 acts as an anti-inflammatory cytokine by downregulating expression of Th1 and NK cells and macrophages. It enhances B-cell proliferation and antibody production and inhibits LPS and bacteria induction into proinflammatory cytokines such as IFN-γ, IL-12, and IL-1β. IL-10 is often expressed with pro-inflammatory cytokines, though the necessary pathways may negatively impact the function of the other cytokines. IL-10 has been shown to have links to melanoma, multiple sclerosis, and vascular and cardiac dysfunction in mice.
