Sword Assay for Human IL-23

Sword Assay for Human IL-23

Interleukin-23 (IL-23) is a pro-inflammatory cytokine composed of two subunits, p19 and p401. Its p40 subunit is also shared with IL-12. However, IL-23 and IL-12 activate distinct cellular pathways.2 IL-23 induces the differentiation of Th17 cells from naïve CD4+ helper T cells to produce IL-17A, IL-17F, IL-6, IL-22, TNFα and GM-CSF. IL-23 also induces tissue macrophages to produce IL-1, TNFα and IL-23.

IL-23 is secreted by both macrophages and dendritic cells as a host defense and wound healing response. It has been implicated in several inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, including psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, Crohn’s Disease and ankylosing spondylitis. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have also linked IL-23 to ulcerative colitis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and graft-versus-host disease.2

This Sword Assay has been optimized for use with the R&D Systems Quantikine ELISA for Human IL-23 (Catalog No. D2300B).
