Purpose The Human IL-16 ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of Human IL-16.
This ELISA Pair Set contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs.
Detection Method Colorimetric
Sensitivity 9.4 pg/mL
Characteristics Capture Antibody: 0.4 mg/mL of mouse anti-IL16 monoclonal antibody (in PBS, pH 7.4). Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in CBS before coating.

Detection Antibody: 0.2 mg/mL rabbit anti-IL16 monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) (in PBS, 50 % glycerol, pH 7.4). Dilute to working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.

Standard: Each vial contains 19 ng of recombinant IL16. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. After reconstitution, store at -20 °C to -80 °C in a manual defrost freezer. A seven-point standard curve using 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 0.6 ng/mL is recommended.

Sensitivity: The minimum detectable dose of Human IL-16 was determined to be approximately 9.4 pg/mL. This is defined as at least three times standard deviations above the mean optical density of 10 replicates of the zero standard.

Alternative Name IL16
Background Interleukin-16, also known as Lymphocyte chemoattractant factor, LCF and IL16, is a secreted, cytoplasm and nucleusprotein which contains 4PDZ (DHR) domains. Interleukin-16 / IL16 was originally described as a factor that could attractactivated T cells in humans, it was previously called lymphocyte chemoattractant factor (LCF) . Since then, thisinterleukin has been shown to recruit and activate many other cells expressing the CD4 Molecule, including monocytes, eosinophils, and dendritic cells. The structure of Interleukin-16 / IL16 was determined following its cloning in 1994. Interleukin-16 / IL16 is produced as a precursor peptide (pro-IL-16) that requires processing by an enzyme calledcaspase-3 to become active. CD4 is the cell signaling receptor for mature IL-16. Interleukin-16 / IL16 is a pleiotropiccytokine that functions as a chemoattractant, a modulator of T cell activation, and an inhibitor of HIV replication. Interleukin-16 / IL16 is a cytokine that released by a variety of cells (including lymphocytes and some epithelial cells) that has been characterized as a chemoattractant for certain immune cells expressing the cell surface molecule CD4. The signaling process of Interleukin-16 / IL16 is mediated by CD4. It undergoes proteolytic processing, which is found toyield two functional proteins. Interleukin-16 / IL16 function is exclusively attributed to the secreted C-terminal peptide, while the N-terminal product may play a role in cell cycle control. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants encodingdistinct isoforms have been reported.

Application Notes Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.
Protocol This ELISA Pair Set is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). It utilizes a monoclonal antibody specific for IL-16 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any IL-16 present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated rabbit anti-IL-16 monoclonal antibody is then added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody "sandwich". The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is loaded, which produces color in proportion to the amount of IL-16 present in the sample. To end the enzyme reaction, the stop solution is added and absorbances of the microwell are read at 450 nm.
Reagent Preparation
  1. Dilute the capture antibody to the working concentration in CBS. Immediately coat a 96-well microplate with 100 μL per well of the diluted capture antibody. Seal the plate and incubate overnight at 4 °C.
    2. Aspirate each well and wash with at least 300 μL wash buffer, repeating the process two times for a total of three washes. Complete removal of liquid at each step is essential for good performance. After the last wash, remove any remaining wash buffer by inverting the plate and blotting it against clean paper towels.
    3. Block plates by adding 300 μL of blocking buffer to each well. Incubate at room temperature for a minimum of 1 hour.
    4. Repeat the aspiration/wash as in step 2. The plates are now ready for sample addition.
Assay Procedure
  1. Add 100 μL of sample or standards in sample dilution buffer per well. Seal the plate and incubate 2 hours at roomtemperature.
    2. Repeat the aspiration/wash as in step 2 of plate preparation.
    3. Add 100 μL of the detection antibody, diluted in antibody dilution buffer, to each well. Seal the plate and incubate 1hour at room temperature.
    4. Repeat the aspiration/wash as in step 2 of plate preparation.
    5. Add 200 μL of substrate solution to each well. Incubate for 20 minutes at room temperature (if substrate solutionis not as requested, the incubation time should be optimized). Avoid placing the plate in direct light.
    6. Add 50 μL of stop solution to each well. Gently tap the plate to ensure thorough mixing.
    7. Determine the optical density of each well immediately, using a microplate reader set to 450 nm.
Calculation of Results

Calculate the mean absorbance for each set of duplicate standards, controls and samples. Subtract the mean zero standard absorbance from each. Construct a standard curve by plotting the mean absorbance for each standard on the y-axis against the concentration on the x-axis and draw a best fit curve through the points on the graph. To determine the concentration of the unknowns, find the unknowns' mean absorbance value on the y-axis and draw a horizontal line to the standard curve. At the point of intersection, draw a vertical line to the x-axis and read the concentration. If samples have been diluted, the concentration read from the standard curve must be multiplied by the dilution factor. Alternatively, computer-based curve-fitting statistical software may also be employed to calculate the concentration of the sample.
