Application Instructions

Application Suggestion
Tested Application Dilution
Neut5 µg/ml
WB0.02 - 0.1 µg/ml
Application Note ELISA: The antibody matches with clone I8-60 (Cat. No: ARG10006) in sandwich ELISA.

Neutralization: In chemotaxis assay, the antibody inhibited 97.8% % of the chemotactic activity of IL-8 on RB/293 cell. 5μg/mL of antibody and 10 ng/mL of human IL-8 were used in the assay. This antibody inhibited the chemotactic effect of human IL-8, but had no inhibitory effect to MIP 1-bata and RANTES in neutrophil chemotaxis assay. The antibody also neutralized IL-8 induced calcium influx in human granulocytes.

Western Blot: The antibody, when used at concentration of 0.02-0.1g/mL antibody will allow visualization of 100 ng/lane of recombinant human IL-8.

* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.

GeneID: 3576 Human CXCL8

Swiss-port # P10145 Human Interleukin-8

Gene Symbol CXCL8
Gene Full Name chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 8
Background Interleukin 8 (IL-8), like IL-6, is secreted by macrophages and a variety of cells that express Toll-like receptors in response to the stimulation of pathogens. IL-8's primary function is to recruit neutrophils and other target cells through chemotaxis to the infected site to eliminate pathogens. IL-8 causes increased intracellular Ca2+, release of reactive oxygen species, and other physiological changes required for migration and phagocytosis. IL-8 is also known to promote angiogenesis.
Function IL-8 is a chemotactic factor that attracts neutrophils, basophils, and T-cells, but not monocytes. It is also involved in neutrophil activation. It is released from several cell types in response to an inflammatory stimulus. IL-8(6-77) has a 5-10-fold higher activity on neutrophil activation, IL-8(5-77) has increased activity on neutrophil activation and IL-8(7-77) has a higher affinity to receptors CXCR1 and CXCR2 as compared to IL-8(1-77), respectively.

PTM Several N-terminal processed forms are produced by proteolytic cleavage after secretion from at least peripheral blood monocytes, leukcocytes and endothelial cells. In general, IL-8(1-77) is referred to as interleukin-8. IL-8(6-77) is the most promiment form.
Citrullination at Arg-27 prevents proteolysis, and dampens tissue inflammation, it also enhances leukocytosis, possibly through impaired chemokine clearance from the blood circulation.
