Flow Cytometry / FACS Antibody | Interleukin

Background

Flow cytometry is a method to evaluate cell membrane proteins and intracellular proteins as well as peptides and DNA. The principle behind FACS is an antigen-antibody reaction, with the antibodies being fluorescently labelled. There are three fluorescent proteins (R-PE, APC, and PerCP) conjugated to antibodies. Flow cytometry quantification is carried out with intercalating color labels (without the antibody). Flow cytometry antibodies are widely used in cell counting, cell sorting, biomarker detection andprotein engineering.
Interleukins are a type of cytokines that were first seen to be expressed by leukocytes. The term 'interleukin' describe a number of secreted molecules produced by leukocytes, a variety of polypeptides that act specifically as mediators between leucocytes. . Interleukin (IL) has been used to describe a group of cytokines with complex immunomodulatory functions - including cell proliferation, maturation, migration and adhesion.
