C-X-C Motif Chemokine 10 (CXCL10), also known as 10 kDa Interferon-gamma-Induced Protein (IP-10), is a 77 amino acid protein secreted by several cell types in response to IFN-?. These cell types include monocytes, endothelial cells, and fibroblasts. CXCL10 has been attributed several roles such as chemoattraction for monocytes, T cells, and dendritic cells. Other activities include promotion of T cell adhesion to endothelial cells, antitumor activity, and inhibition of bone marrow colony formation. It has been suggested that CXCL10 may play an important role in delayed hypersensitivity reactions. Increased levels of CXCL10 are found in psoriatic plaques characterized by the infiltration of neutrophils, but it does not activate neutrophils. It was reported that CXCL10 also possesses antimicrobial activity. Recent data suggest that CXCL10 could bind to toll-like receptor 4 and may contribute to beta cell failure in diabetes.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Donor beads while another anti-analyte antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads causes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
