Interleukin-22 (IL-22) ELISA Kit


Human IL-22 ELISA kit is designed for measuring in vitro quantitative amounts of interleukin-22 (IL-22) in human tissue homogenates, serum, biological fluids and plasma. This assay has a minimum detection limit of 9.375 pg/ml.


Interleukin-22 (IL-22) which is also called TIF (IL-10-related T cell-derived inducible factor), a newly identified cytokine which displays 22% amino acid homology to IL-10 and signals through class II cytokine receptor proteins. IL-22 can be produced by dendritic cells, natural killer cells and T-cells during either a tissue inflammation, bacterial infection or auto-immunity. It has the ability to act upon innate immunity cells via its receptors which are known to be expressed exclusively on these cells. This gives it an important function as a protective molecule which has the ability to counteract the destructive nature of the immune response in order to limit the damage to these tissues.

Recently, an IL-22 expressing T helper cell subset which is referred to as Th22 has been characterized. It is distinct from the other T cells due to the fact it can be co-expressed with the skin-homing receptors CCR4 or CCR10 and the chemokine receptor CCR6. The expression of IL-22 is found to be also elevated in psoriatic skin inflammation, inflammatory bowel disease and atopic dermatitis. Psoriatic patients display a strong elevation of IL-22 plasma levels, which also directly correlates with the disease severity. The expression of IL-22 in CD4+ T helper cells has been found to be linked with Th7 and Th17.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

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.

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.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
