25x Biotin-detection Ab (Mouse IL-11 Biotin-dAb). PN: B211236B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anti-mouse IL-11.

Lyophilized Standard Mix - Mouse Group 4 Panel A, 7-Plex. PN: MG4007A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant FGF-1, FGF-2, FGF-9, HGF, IL-11, IL-20, and IL-33.  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 Mouse IL-11. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Mouse Group 4.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Mouse/Rat Basic Kit (PN: P200201) 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 (IL-11) is a multifunctional cytokine first isolated in 1990 from bone marrow-derived stromal cells. It is a key regulator of multiple events in hematopoiesis, most notably the stimulation of megakaryocyte maturation.  It is also known under the names adipogenesis inhibitory factor (AGIF) and oprelvekin.  IL-11 has been demonstrated to improve platelet recovery after chemotherapy-induced thrombo-cytopenia, induce acute phase proteins, modulate antigen-antibody responses, participate in the regulation of bone cell proliferation and differentiation IL-11 causes bone-resorption. It stimulates the growth of certain lymphocytes and, in the murine model, stimulates an increase in the cortical thickness and strength of long bones. In addition to having lymphopoietic/hematopoietic and osteotrophic properties, it has functions in many other tissues, including the brain, gut, testis and bone.
