Interleukin 8 (IL-8), like IL-6, is secreted by macrophages and a variety of cells that express Toll-like receptors in response to the stimulation of pathogens. IL-8's primary function is to recruit neutrophils and other target cells through chemotaxis to the infected site to eliminate pathogens. IL-8 causes increased intracellular Ca2+, release of reactive oxygen species, and other physiological changes required for migration and phagocytosis. IL-8 is also known to promote angiogenesis.
ELISA: React with human IL-8.
Neutralizing: In chemotaxis assay, the antibody inhibited 95.1% of the chemotactic activity of IL-8 on RB/293 cell. 50μg/mL of antibody and 10ng/ml of human IL-8 were used in assay. This antibody inhibited the chemotactic effect of human IL-8, and had no inhibitory effect to MIP 1-bata and RANTES in neutrophil chemotaxis assay, indicating that the neutralizing activity is specific. The antibody also neutralized IL-8 induced calcium influx in human granulocytes.
Western Blot: The antibody, when used at 0.02-0.1μg/ml concentration, will allow visualization of 100ng/lane of recombinant human IL-8. Figure (see image): Western blot analysis of recombinant human IL-8 using clone 257.
