MaxDiscovery™ Mouse IL-5 ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ Mouse IL-5 ELISA Test Kit is designed for quantitative determination of the concentration of mouse IL-5 serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant. Mature mouse interleukin 5 (IL-5) is a 12 kDa protein consisting of 113 amino acids and is processed from a 133 amino acid precursor. IL-5 is mainly generated in T cells as a disulfide-linked homodimeric 40-45 kDa glycoprotein. The homodimer is formed by two interchain disulfide bonds between Cys 44 and 86 of each chain. T cell derived IL-5 appears to be the main cytokine involved in the control of eosinophilia. The effects of IL-5 on eosinophils include promoting growth and differentiation, activating mature eosinophils and increasing the survival of these cells during parasitic infection. In mice, IL-5 acts on B cells to induce differentiation into Ig-producing cells. The critical role of the eosinophils in allergy indicates that IL-5 is a key cytokine in the development of allergic diseases such as asthma. There is 71% homology between human and mouse IL-5 and significant crossreactivity in functional assays. Murine IL-5 receptor (IL-5R) consists of an a and ß polypeptide chain. The IL-5R a chain is a 60 kDa protein with a low binding affinity for IL-5. Association with the 130 kDa IL-5R ß chain increases the binding affinity for IL-5 aprroximately 100-fold, although the ß chain does not bind IL-5 by itself.

New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
Sweet Revenge Against Superbugs
A special type of synthetic sugar could be the latest weapon in the fight against superbugs.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
Long-sought Discovery Fills in Missing Details of Cell 'Switchboard'
A biomedical breakthrough reveals never-before-seen details of the human body’s cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses.
Tracking Breast Cancer Before it Grows
A team of scientists led by University of Saskatchewan researcher Saroj Kumar is using cutting-edge Canadian Light Source techniques to screen and treat breast cancer at its earliest changes.
Zebrafish Reveal Drugs that may Improve Bone Marrow Transplant
Compounds boost stem cell engraftment; could allow more matches for patients with cancer and blood diseases.
DNA Damage Seen in Patients Undergoing CT Scanning
Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.
