  • Interleukin 1 beta (IL-1β) is a central player of the immune response, involved in inflammation at local and systemic levels. IL-1β is synthesized as a 31 kDa precursor that is cleaved by caspase-1 (ICE) into the active 17 kDa form and eventually released into extracellular space. Its production has been reported in many cell types including brain and monocytic and peripheral blood mononuclear cells. After binding to its receptor, IL-1RI, IL-1β triggers a cascade of kinase signaling pathways that lead to the activation of transcription factors like NFκB and AP-1, eventually activating the expression of genes such as MIP-2 and C-reactive protein.

    • Our 100 assay point kit allows you to run 100 wells in 96-well format, using a 100 µL reaction volume (10 µL of sample).
    • Our 500 assay point kit allows you to run 500 wells in 96-well or 384-well format, using a 50 µL reaction volume (5 µL of sample).
    • Our 5,000 assay point kit allows you to run 5,000 wells in 96-well or 384-well format, using a 50 µL reaction volume (5 µL of sample).
    • No-wash steps, no separation steps

    AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
