Description

Human IL-4 (Interleukin-4, Ia inducing factor (IaIF), B-cell stimulating factor-1,BSF-1, Hodgkin’s cell growth factor, HCGF, Mast cell growth factor-2, MCGF-2, Macrophage fusion factor, MFF, T cell growth factor-2, TCGF-2) is a pleiotropic cytokine that is produced by activated T cells, mast cells and basophils. IL-4 elicits many different biological responses, but has two dominant functions. IL-4 regulates differentiation of naïve CD4+ T cell to Th2 cells. Th2 cells produce IL-4, IL-5, IL-10 and IL-13, which tend to favor a humoral immune response while suppressing a cell-mediated immune response controlled by Th1 cells. In addition, IL-4 regulates IgE and IgG1 production by B cells.

BioLegend’s LEGEND MAX™ Human IL-4 ELISA Kit is a sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA), in which, a Human IL-4 specific monoclonal antibody is pre-coated on a 96-well strip-well plate.

BioLegend’s LEGEND MAX™ Human IL-4 ELISA Kit is specifically designed for the accurate quantitation of Human IL-4 from cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma or other bodily fluids. It is ready-to-use, accurate, and sensitive.

Related FAQs

For some of your ELISA kits, why do my serum samples require dilution with assay buffer?

Dilution with assay buffer is required to minimize the matrix difference between the samples and the standards to achieve better accuracy.

I have multiple LEGEND MAX™ ELISA kits that I want to run simultaneously. Can I use the same wash buffer for all the kits?

The Wash buffer is the same for all the current LEGEND MAX™ kits. All the part numbers on the Wash Buffer bottles in these kits should be the same. For ELISA MAX™ Deluxe and ELISA MAX™ Standard sets, we provide a recipe for the wash buffer on each kit’s technical data sheet. This recipe is the same for all ELISA MAX™ sets.

In your LEGEND MAX™ ELISA Kits, there is a step that calls for a washing of the plates before even adding any sample to it. What is the purpose of this step?

We typically use a stabilizer for pre-coated plates. The washings were designed to remove these components before you start the assay. If you do not do the washings, the effect on assay performance is negligible.
