The 10- and 20-plate sizes of this assay have been discontinued. The assay will remain available for purchase under the 5-plate catalog number, but will no longer include ELISA microwell plates. Recommended microwell plates can be purchased separately under Cat. No. 423501. Please contact your BioLegend sales representative for bulk pricing quotations.
IL-17 or IL-17A originally identified as cytotoxic T lymphocyte-associated antigen-8 (CTLA-8) in mouse, is a founding member of the IL-17 family of cytokines. IL-17A is mainly produced by a small subset of T helper cells called Th17 cells. IL-17A is a 155 amino acid protein that is a disulfide linked, homodimeric, secreted glycoprotein with a molecular mass of 35 kD. The amino acid sequence of human IL-17A is 63% and 58% identical to mouse and rat IL-17A, respectively, and 72% identical to the ORF13 of Herpesvirus saimiri. IL-17A exhibits multiple biological activities including the induction of various proinflammatory cytokines and chemokines such as IL-6, IL-8, G-CSF, GM-CSF, GRO-α, and MCP-1 on a variety of cell types. IL-17A is also involved in the activation of NF-kB and costimulation of T cell proliferation. As a result of these roles, IL-17A has been linked to many immune/autoimmune related diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, asthma, lupus, and multiple sclerosis.
ELISA MAX™ Set Deluxe is specifically engineered for accurate recovery and measurement of analytes in complex fluids, such as serum and plasma (as well as activated cell cultures) without any interference by confounding serum factors, such as heterophilic antibody or rheumatoid factor.

- Do the ELISA MAX™ Deluxe Sets come with plates?
No, ELISA MAX™ Deluxe sets no longer come with plates, but Coating Buffer and Assay Diluent (for blocking and dilutions) are included in the ELISA MAX™ Deluxe Sets. Plates can be ordered separately (Cat. No. 423501), and instructions on coating the plates are in the sets’ product manuals.
