DescriptionSMC™ Human Interferon-gamma (IFN-γ)
OverviewThe SMC™ Human IFN-γ Immunoassay Kit contains all reagents required to perform the assay. This assay takes advantage of a standard immunoassay workflow configured in a standard plate format. Assay protocols are similar to existing sandwich ELISA methods with two key differences: 1) Elution buffer disrupts the sandwich, separating the labeled detection antibody for quantification. 2) The SMC™ immunoassay system detects analytes using Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology.
Background InformationInterferon-gamma (IFN-γ) is a cytokine with anti-viral and tumor-suppressing properties that is actively involved in the innate immune system. As the only member of the Type 2 IFN family, IFN-γ is expressed by Th1 cells, Tc cells, dendritic cells, and natural killer cells. Once bound to its heterodimeric receptor IFN-γR, the activated glycoprotein recruits and directs macrophages to the site of infection and escalates the inflammatory response. IFN-γ has also been documented to up-regulate the expression of IL-1 and down-regulate the production of IL-8, both of which are pro-inflammatory cytokines. The potency, specificity and rapid action of IFN-γ make it an attractive drug target for immuno-regulatory diseases.
