Interleukin-26 (IL-26) is a dimeric cytokine which belongs to the IL-10 family. IL-26 is produced by several populations of leukocytes and structural cells. This cytokine binds to a heterodimeric receptor complex including IL-10R2 and -20R1 (IL-26R) and signals through STAT 1 and 3 to induce the release of chemokines and growth factors. IL-26 acts as an inflammatory mediator and a driver of chronic inflammation due to its ability to act as a carrier of extracellular DNA. It is an antimicrobial molecule through its capacity to form pores in bacterial membranes. These properties suggest that IL-26 can be categorized as a kinocidin. The high levels of IL-26 in human airways are altered in inflammatory airway disorders such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Thus, IL-26 emerges as an important mediator, providing direct and indirect actions on microbes, actions that are essential for host defense and inflammation and bears potential as a biomarker of disease. BioVision’s IL-26 (Human) ELISA Kit is used for the quantitative detection of IL-26 in serum, plasma, tissue homogenates and other biological fluids. It is based on the principle of sandwich ELISA. The capture antibody is pre-coated on 96-well plates. The standards, test samples and biotin conjugated detection antibody are added to the wells subsequently, and washed with wash buffer. HRP-Streptavidin is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. The HRP enzymatic reaction is detected using TMB-substrate. Finally, an acidic stop solution terminates the enzymatic reaction. The color developed is directly proportional to the amount of IL-26 in the sample.
