Rat GRO/CINC-2 alpha ELISA kit is designed for detecting quantitative amounts of GRO/CINC-2-alpha in samples of cell culture supernatant and serum. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 7.0 pg/ml.
GRO/CINC-1 (also known as cytokine-induced neutrophil chemo attractant 1) is a member of the CXC chemokines family and it was first discovered from purified media which was conditioned by IL-1b stimulated rat kidney epithelial cells. A further 3 rat CXC chemokines, namely CINC-2a, CINC-2b and CINC-3 (MIP-2) have also been discovered (all of which have 63-67% protein sequence identity). CINCs are the rat counterpart of human Grow Related Oncogene (GRO), this belongs to the family of IL-8 polypeptide. There are 3 isoforms of GRO: alpha, beta and gamma, which share 68%, 71% and 68% homology.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat GRO/CINC-2a using this rat GRO/CINC-2 alpha ELISA kit was approximately 7.0 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 9.38 – 600.0 pg/ml.
