ELISAs specific for S100A8, S100A9, and S100A12 homodimers, as well as S100A8/A9 heterodimer were generated using monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies produced in our laboratory. Using these antibodies, we demonstrated that most of chemotactic factors did not induce thesecretion of S100 proteins. However, MSU crystals induced the secretion of S100A8/A9 and S100A12, and this secretion was inhibited by DPI and high concentrations of K+.
