Sandwich ELISA analysis of mouse IL-6 was performed using a Mouse IL-6 Colorimetric ELISA Kit (Product # EM2IL6) by loading 50 ul per well of Mouse IL-6 Recombinant Protein (Product # SMIL6) in dodecuplicate at 2000, 800, 320, 128, 51, and 0 pg/ml across a 3 ug/ml IL-6 monoclonal antibody (Product # MM600D) pre-coated plate and incubating for 2 hours at room temperature. The plate was washed, then incubated with 50 ul per well of a biotinylated-anti-IL-6 antibody (Product # MM600CB) in dodecuplicate at 0.25 ug/ml for 1 hour at room temperature. The plate was washed and incubated with 100 ul per well of Streptavidin-HRP (Product # N504) at a dilution of 1:100,000 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Detection was performed using 1-Step Ultra TMB-ELISA substrate (Product # 34028) for 30 minutes at room temperature in the dark. The plate was then stopped with 0.16M sulfuric acid. Absorbances were read on a spectrophotometer at 450-550 nm.

MM600CB targets IL-6 in ELISA, IHC (P), IP, Neutralization and WB applications and shows reactivity with mouse samples.
The MM600CB immunogen is recombinant mouse IL-6.
MM600CB detects IL-6 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 22 kDa.
The MM600CB mouse IL6 antibody (biotinylated conjugate of clone 20F3) has successfully been paired as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA with capture antibody MM600D (clone 32C11). Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1 µg/ml for coating and 0.125 - 0.25 µg/ml for detection.
Biotinylated antibody MM600CB (clone 20F3) and antibody MM600D (clone 32C11) have successfully been used in combination with recombinant mouse IL6 protein SMIL6 in ELISA applications.
This antibody is produced by injecting Rat IgG secreting hybridoma cells into the peritoneum of mice. The resulting ascites is collected from the mice and the antibody is purified.
This gene encodes a cytokine that functions in inflammation and the maturation of B cells. The protein is primarily produced at sites of acute and chronic inflammation, where it is secreted into the serum and induces a transcriptional inflammatory response through interleukin 6 receptor, alpha. The functioning of this gene is implicated in a wide variety of inflammation-associated disease states, including suspectibility to diabetes mellitus and systemic juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
