Mouse KC/GRO ELISA kit is intended for analysing quantitative concentrations of mouse KC or GRO (CXCL1, GRO-alpha, NAP-3 and MGSA-alpha) in plasma, serum, cell supernatant media. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.27 pg/ml.
KC/GRO is predominately produced as a result of fibroblasts being induced by PDGF and are found to be expressed in either endothelial cells or macrophages. These are chemokines (CXC) which are also referred to as GRO-alpha, NAP-3, CXCL1 and MGSA-alpha. GRO/KC is an intercrine alpha which displays chemotactic activity for neutrophils and is responsible for activating neutrophils during inflammation. It can produce a biological signal through binding to its CXCR2 receptor. The N-terminal processed form of KC (5-72) can display highly enhanced hematopoietic activity. There is also evidence to indicate that KC/GRO and its respective receptors are important for neutrophil chemotaxis during epidemic keratoconjuctivits.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of mouse KC and GRO (GRO-alpha, CXCL1, MGSA-alpha and NAP-3) using current mouse KC/GRO ELISA kit was approximately 1.27 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 23.44 – 1,500.0 pg/ml.
