Zhang C, Xin H, Zhang W, Yazaki PJ, Zhang Z, Le K, Li W, Lee H, Kwak L, Forman S, Jove R, Yu H. CD5 Binds to Interleukin-6 and Induces a Feed-Forward Loop with the Transcription Factor STAT3 in B Cells to Promote Cancer. Immunity. 44(4):  913-923. Abstract.

“To detect IL-6 binding to CD5, we performed enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (Ieguchi et al., 2010). In brief, recombinant mouse CD5 was incubated in a 96-well plate at 4°C for overnight. Unbound CD5 was removed, and 200 μL of blocking buffer (ImmunoChemistry Technologies) was added and incubated at RT for 2 hr. The wells were washed with PBS containing 0.05% Tween-20, and soluble IL-6 in 1% BSA was added to each well and incubated at room temperature for 2 hr. IL-6 was quantified with biotin-avidin assay followed by a colorimetric detection. Anti-mCD5 blocking assay was performed as described above, except that anti-CD5 antibody was added to CD5-coated wells before adding IL-6.”
