Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human TARC in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

This human TARC ELISA kit employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique to measure the levels of human TARC in multiple samples, including serum, plasma, or tissue homogenates. It also uses the enzyme-substrate chromogenic reaction to visualize and analyze the analyte levels through the color intensity. The intensity of the colored product is in direct proportion to the TARC levels in the sample and is measured at 450 nm through a microplate reader.

TARC, also called CCL17, is constitutively expressed in the thymus and produced by dendritic cells (DCs), endothelial cells, keratinocytes, and bronchial epithelial cells. CCL17 plays an important role in T cell development in the thymus, and it binds to CCR4 and displays chemotactic activity for T lymphocytes, predominantly Th2 cells. Moreover, some studies have demonstrated that chemokine CCL17, an important regulator of atherosclerosis, is positively related to coronary artery disease, independent of traditional cardiovascular risk factors. Another study has revealed that circulating CCL17 plays a crucial role in aging as well as Ang II-induced pathological cardiac remodeling and heart failure (HF).

  1. The frequency of the CC genotype in the TARC rs223828 SNP was higher in patients with intractable Graves disease than in patients with Graves disease in remission. PMID: 29848886
  2. The expression of CCL17 was decreased in nasal polyp (NP) epithelium compared to the epithelium of normal ethmoid sinus, whereas the expression of CCL22 was not decreased. E-cadherin was differentially distributed between the epithelium of normal ethmoid sinus and NP epithelium. EGFR was also decreased in NPs. PMID: 29746583

  6. Taken together, our data showed a likely positive feedback mechanism of enhanced IL-6 production in ectopic milieu. The high levels of IL-6 in the peritoneal cavity stimulate the expression of CCL17 in endometrial stromal cells by activating JNK signal pathway, and then, CCL17 further induces CCR4 expression on macrophages, which eventually leads to an increase in IL-6 production via NF-kappaB activation.
