Mouse IL-23 ELISA Kit (Interleukin 23)

Full Name: Mouse IL-23 ELISA Kit (Interleukin 23)
Reactivity: Mouse
Sample Type: Serum, Tissue Homogenates, Plasma, Biological Fluids
Sensitivity: 9.375 pg/ml


Interleukin-23 (IL-23) is expressed by immune cells including; dendritic cells, macrophages and T cells. The expression is induced in response to inflammatory signals such as those produced during infection or tissue damage. It is secreted by activated T cells and dendritic cells, which may contribute to the initiation of autoimmune diseases. IL-23 induced by activated T cells is a potent inducer of type 1 T helper (Th1) immune responses, which are important for fighting bacterial infections.

In contrast, expression of IL-23 induced by dendritic cells or other immune cell types induces type 2 Th2 responses, which are important for fighting viral infections and allergic responses but have no known function against bacteria. Additionally, various forms of autoimmunity and illnesses like chronic or enduring graft-versus-host disease are thought to be affected by it. The receptor is known as the IL23R gene. The gene itself is called the IL 23 gene.

IL-23 cytokine is structurally similar to IL-12, with both cytokines sharing a common p40 subunit. However, the p19 subunit of IL-23 is unique and is not present in IL-12. It is a cytokine that promotes inflammation and activates Th1 and Th17 responses. It controls eosinophils, natural killer cells, B cells, T cells and neutrophils. It binds to the IL-12 receptor complex on T helper (Th) lymphocytes and activates them by enhancing cyclic AMP production. Its expression may also be associated with Th2 cell differentiation.


Mouse IL-23 ELISA kit is designed for measuring concentration of interleukin 23 (IL-23, IL23A, IL-23p19, SGFR) present in mouse plasma, tissue homogenates, serum and other biological fluids.


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.

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

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

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.
