Product Summary
The Quantikine Human DPPIV/CD26 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human DPPIV in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human DPPIV and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human DPPIV showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human DPPIV.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

Background: DPPIV/CD26
Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV/CD26) is a serine exopeptidase that releases Xaa-Pro dipeptides from the N-terminus of proteins and peptides. It plays an important role in T-cell costimulation, chemokine biology, type II diabetes and tumor biology. There are at least 15 DPPIV-related human genes. Some function as enzymes, including DPP8, DPP9, fibroblast activation protein (FAP), prolyl endopeptidase (PREP), and N-acylaminoacyl-peptide hydrolase (APEH) while others (DPP6/DPPX and DPP10/DPRP3) may have lost their protease properties but acquired novel functions. For example, DPP6 is a critical component of neuronal A-type K+ channels.
