Recommended Assay Procedures

Recommended Assay Procedure:

ELISA Capture: The purified TC11-18H10 antibody (Cat. No. 555068) is useful as a capture antibody for a sandwich ELISA for measuring mouse IL-17A protein levels. Purified TC11-18H10 antibody can be paired with the biotinylated TC11-8H4 (Cat. No. 555067) antibody as the detecting antibody, with recombinant mouse IL-17A protein as the standard. The purified TC11-18H10 antibody should be titrated from 0.5 µg/ml to 2.0 µg/ml to determine its optimal concentration for ELISA capture. To obtain linear standard curves, doubling dilutions of mouse IL-17A ranging from ~2,000 to 15 pg/ml are recommended for inclusion in each ELISA plate. For specific methodology, please visit the protocols section or chapter on ELISA in the Immune Function Handbook, both of which are posted on our web site,

Note: This ELISA pair shows no cross-reactivity with any of the cytokines or chemokines tested (e.g., mouse IL-1β, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-7, IL-9, IL-12 p70, IL-15, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, MCP-1, TCA3, TNF; human IL-1α, IL-1β, IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, IL-5, IL-6, IL-7, IL-8, IL-9, IL-10, IL-11, IL-12 p70, IL-12 p40, IL-13, IL-15, G-CSF, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, lymphotactin, MCP-1, MCP-2, MIP-1α, MIP-1β, NT-3, PDGF-AA, sCD23 , SCF, TNF, LT-α, VEGF; rat IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, GM-CSF, IFN-γ, TNF).

Western Blot: The TC11-1810 antibody has been reported to be useful for Western Blotting. Please note that this application is not routinely tested at BD Biosciences.

Neutralization: TCII-18H10 has been shown to be a neutralizing antibody. Please note that this application is not routinely tested at BD Biosciences.

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

The TC11-18H10 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to recombinant and natural mouse IL-17A proteins. IL-17A, also known as CTLA-8, is a T cell-derived cytokine that promotes inflammatory responses.  Mouse IL-17A is a proinflammatory cytokine that can induce the release of IL-6 by mouse stromal cells. It has been shown to support the growth of hemopoietic progenitors in vitro; it can also stimulate granulopoiesis in vivo. The TC11-18H10 antibody has been reported to neutralize IL-17A activity.  Recent studies have shown that IL-17A is produced by a unique subset of Th17 cells that develop along a pathway distinct from the Th1- and Th2- cell differentiation pathways. The mouse IL-17A cDNA was isolated from a cDNA library generated from TCRαβ+CD4-CD8- thymocytes.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
