Sensitivity: 18.75 pg/ml


Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is an incredibly beneficial molecule as it helps to reduce inflammation and its associated damages. However, it’s production is impaired and reduced in cases of chronic inflammation. Both obesity and aging are associated with chronic inflammation – these are two blockbuster conditions that could benefit greatly from an increased level of IL-10 as they often result in a higher prevalence of other inflammatory markers. It is predominantly expressed in the lungs, kidneys, spleen and thymus, providing evidence of its vital involvement in immune response regulation.

Mechanisms involving IL-10, IL-10RA and IL-10RB binding together result in the activation of JAK1 and STAT2, leading to the phosphorylation of STAT3. This then allows STAT3 to enter into the nucleus and activate anti-inflammatory molecules production. Research has found that IL-10RA and IL-10RB have a stronger connection to each other than the binding between IL10RA and JAK1. This allows for a more stable interaction with STAT3, leading to increased anti-inflammatory responses. In contrast, IL-10R1 has not been found to be able to bind with either molecule. A similar mechanism links IL-10RA to STAT1, but instead of phosphorylation, it results in the direct binding and activation.


Rat IL-10 ELISA kit can be used for detecting amounts of interleukin 10 (IL-10, IL-10A, CSIF, TGIF) present in rat serum, plasma, biological fluids and tissue homogenates.


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.
