Product specifications

Intended use

This ELISA PathRF kit is intended for the quantification of human IL-17A in serum and plasma containing rheumatoid factor (RF). For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.

Serum/Plasma samples

ELISA PathRF kits
ELISA PathRF kits are designed to eliminate potential interference from RF and heterophilic antibodies. The combination of a recombinant detection mAb and RF-block diluent prevents RF and heterophilic antibodies from cross-linking the assay antibodies, effectively reducing the risk of false-positive signal. RF and heterophilic antibodies can be found at high concentrations in serum and plasma from individuals with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. The kit has been validated with RF-containing plasma.

Analyte description

Interleukin 17A (IL-17A) is a potent proinflammatory cytokine produced by activated Th17 (T helper 17) cells and certain cells belonging to the innate immune system. In mice, IL-17 has also been shown to be produced by activated CD8 T cells and γδ T cells. Th17 cells play an important role in autoimmune diseases and protection against bacteria and fungi. IL-17A acts on a broad range of cell types to induce the expression of cytokines, chemokines, and metalloproteinases. As a result, secretion of IL-17A promotes inflammatory responses, which leads to the recruitment of neutrophils, enhancement of antibody production, and activation of T cells. Increased expression of IL-17A is seen in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis. It is also associated with asthma, psoriasis, cancer, and transplant rejection.
