Interleukin 3 (MCGF, Multi-CSF) is a cytokine that binds to its heterodimeric receptor to promote growth, proliferation, and differentiation of a wide range of cell types including hematopoietic cells such as mast cells, macrophages, erythroid cells, and neuronal cells. It has been referred to as Multipotent Colony Stimulating Factor for these reasons. IL-3 is secreted by activated T cells, mast cells, astrocytes and neurons. IL-3 is a biomarker for eosinophilia and acute lymphoblastic anemia (ALL).

Application Areas

IL-3 assays are available for human and NHP samples in both single and multiplex formats.
Select these or create a custom multiplex assay including IL-3 with the U-PLEX Assay Designer.
