Application Sandwich ELISA kit of Quantitative Detection for Human IL-6R alpha
This kit is used for quantitative detection of human IL-6R Alpha in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma(heparin, EDTA, citrate) and urine.
There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
Background IL6R alpha(IL6RA) also known as CD126 or IL6R, is a type I cytokine receptor. The IL6 receptor is a protein complex consisting of a IL-6 receptor subunit (IL6R) and interleukin 6 signal transducer Glycoprotein 130. IL6R also denotes the human gene encoding this subunit. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported. IL6R subunit is also shared by many other cytokines. Interleukin-6 receptor has been shown to interact with Interleukin 6 and Ciliary neurotrophic factor. Ligand binding did not appear to affect IL6R dimerization status. IL6R dimerization occurs both on the cell surface and in solution.
