Biomarker Expression Patterns in Bovine, Canine, Porcine and AvianDownload now
Knowledge about the modulation of canine cytokine expression and the levels of soluble cytokines in biological fluids are important factors in understanding the immune response to infectious diseases and cancer.
In addition to playing a major role in disease management and development of novel therapeutics for dogs, studying the role of canine cytokines also contributes to cross-species research, and leads to new experimental and therapeutic approaches in human medicine.
The table shows the Bio-Rad antibodies that have been shown to cross-react with canine samples, with the application and quick links to more information and ordering.
Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is an important cytokine in the canine immune response, playing a role in haematopoiesis and in the acute-phase reaction against infections.
Canine Tumour Necrosis Factor alpha (TNF alpha) is produced by a range of cells, including macrophages and monocytes and is an important mediator of the canine inflammatory response.
