HEK-Blue™ IL-1b

HEK-Blue™ IL-1b

Quick Overview:

Product Code: hkb-il1b
Supplier: InvivoGen

  • Details

    Human & Mouse IL-1Beta Sensor Cells. HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells allow to detect bioactive IL-1β by monitoring the activation of the NF-κB and AP-1 pathways. They derive from HEK-Blue™ TNF-α/IL-1β cells in which the TNF-α response has been blocked. Therefore, HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells respond specifically to IL-1. They express a NF-κB/AP-1-inducible SEAP reporter gene. Binding of IL-1β to its receptor IL-1R on the surface of HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells triggers a signaling cascade leading to the activation NF-κB and the subsequent production of SEAP. HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells are useful to monitor IL-1β in inflammasome activation studies. These cells detect the presence of IL-1β in samples which triggers the production of SEAP. Levels of SEAP can be easily monitored using QUANTI-Blue™. Stimulation of HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells with recombinant human IL-1β can be blocked by the neutralizing monoclonal anti-hIL-1β-IgG antibody.
