Interleukin-17F - mouse (Il17f)

Links to databases

Ligand for IL17RA and IL17RC. The heterodimer formed by IL17A and IL17F is a ligand for the heterodimeric complex formed by IL17RA and IL17RC (By similarity). Involved in stimulating the production of other cytokines such as IL6, IL8 and CSF2, and in regulation of cartilage matrix turnover. Also involved in stimulating the proliferation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells and T-cells and in inhibition of angiogenesis (By similarity). Plays a role in the induction of neutrophilia in the lungs and in the exacerbation of antigen-induced pulmonary allergic inflammation.

Sample type

Recommended sample types are human EDTA plasma and serum. A range of additional sample types are compatible with the technology (PEA), including citrate plasma, heparin plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, (CSF), tissue and cell lysates, fine needle biopsis, microdialysis fluid, cell culture media, dried blood spots, synovial fluid, saliva, plaque extract and microvesicles. Please note that protein expression levels are expected to vary in different sample types. Certain assays are differentially affected by interfering substances such as hemolysate. Download any of our Data Validation documents or contact for more information.

NOTE: The calibrator curve below shows the performance of the assay with the estimated sensitivity and dynamic range parameters indicated. These curves are generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens. Please note that when analyzing biological samples the data generated will be given in the form of relative quantification (NPX values) and cannot be converted to absolute protein concentrations. For more info about NPX measurements, please visit our FAQ page.

Detectability in different mouse sample matrices

Interleukin-17F - mouse (Il17f)

The figure above shows the overall detectability of the specified assay in a range of different mouse sample types. Detectability in each sample matrix is presented as the mean % of all samples included in the validation studies that could be measured above the limit of detection (LOD).

Dilution of samples may be necessary for some sample matrices other than plasma or serum to achieve optimal assay performance – the data shown above represents the values obtained at the optimal dilution identified in each case. Details regarding possible dilutions should be discussed with your Olink representative prior to commencing the study. The data is compiled from multiple studies comprising a range of healthy and disease samples, including samples from genetically modified mouse lines in some cases.

(Note: CSF = cerebrospinal fluid; BAL = bronchoalveolar lavage).


    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 6%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 9%

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
