Full Name: Rat GRO/CINC-3 ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Rat
Sample Type: EDTA-Plasma, Serum, Cell Culture Supernatant
Sensitivity: 0.51 pg/ml


Rat fibroblasts and alveolar macrophages that have been activated by cytokines express cytokine-induced neutrophil chemo attractant 3. Based on its DNA and protein sequences, it is also referred to as rat MIP-2, CXCL1 and GRO beta. It is expressed by bone marrow cells in response to TNF alpha activation, where it increases the recruitment of neutrophils to the site of inflammation.

GRO/CINC-3 is a member of the alpha CXC chemokines subfamily and the protein sequence of rat CINC-3 is found to display 88% identity with murine MIP-2. It has been identified to possess a potent chemo tactic factor for rat neutrophil both in vivo and in vitro. CINC-3 and CINC-4 are structurally similar proteins with a similar domain structure. The two proteins differ only in their C-terminal regions, wherein CINC-3 contains a tyrosine kinase domain at its C terminus and lacks an important region for protein binding, while CINC4 has an SH2 domain which is absent from the former.


Rat GRO/CINC-3 ELISA kit is designed for measuring quantitative levels of both native and recombinant GRO/CINC-3 using rat samples of serum, plasma-EDTA and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.51 pg/ml.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
