Mouse Cytokine ELISA Kits
Cytokines are important molecules in immunological signalling and are involved in endocrine, paracrine and autocrine signalling.
Cytokines are produced by immune cells, B Cells, T Cells, macrophages, mast cells, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, stromal cells with the profile of cytokines produced by cell type varying dependent on function.
Cytokines include adipokines, chemokines, interleukins, interferons, lymphokines and tumour necrosis factors.
Cytokines signalling is mediated through receptors and regulates growth, maturation and responsiveness of certain cell types, furthermore cytokines inhibit or enhance the actions of other cytokines in certain pathways.
Cytokines play key roles in health and disease, specifically in response to host infection, inflammation, trauma, immune response, cancer and sepsis.
