U-PLEX Mouse IL-5 Assay


MSD offers a range of individual assays utilizing U-PLEX Antibody Sets that provide a rapid and convenient method for measuring biomarkers in complex matrices. The individual assays are offered on MSD GOLD Small Spot Streptavidin Plates and use the same antibody sets and diluents as the U-PLEX multiplex assays. This allows for efficient transfer between the individual assay and a higher throughput multiplex configuration. Typical of assays developed on the MSD platform, the individual assays have high sensitivity, excellent precision, provide up to five-logs of linear dynamic range, and require minimal sample volume. Mouse interleukin-5 (IL-5), also known as B-cell growth factor II (BCGF-II) and T-cell replacing factor (TRF), is a glycosylated homodimer with two disulfide bonds and a monomeric molecular weight around 15.4 kDa. It is mainly produced by eosinophils and Th2 cells, and its primary function is to induce terminal differentiation of late-developing B-cells into immunoglobulin-secreting cells. The IL-5 receptor consists of α and βc subunits with IL-5 initially binding to the α subunit with low affinity and then associating with the βc subunit homodimer to yield a high affinity interaction. IL-5 is associated with eosinophilia and other disorders. The U-PLEX Mouse IL-5 Assay provides the components for the quantitative determination of both natural and recombinant IL-5 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants.
