The Quantikine Human Attractin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure Attractin levels in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human Attractin and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained for naturally occurring human Attractin showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine Human Attractin Immunoassay standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human Attractin.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of components.
The recovery of human Attractin spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay was evaluated
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Media (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human Attractin were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Attractin/ATRN, also known as DPPT-L, is an approximately 200 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein that shows dipeptidyl peptidase activity similar to DPPIV/CD26. Attractin is involved in a variety of processes including monocyte-T cell adhesion, axon myelination, melanocyte pigment synthesis, and energy homeostasis. Attractin is transiently upregulated during T cell activation before expression switches to the 175 kDa secreted isoform which is released into the circulation. Soluble Attractin is preferentially expressed by leukocytes and differentiating neurons. It blocks neurite formation and is elevated in the CSF of astrocytoma patients.
