Product Summary

The Quantikine Human Glypican 3 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure Glypican 3 levels in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Glypican 3 and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained for naturally occurring human Glypican 3 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine Human Glypican 3 Immunoassay standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human Glypican 3.


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.

Cell Culture Media (n=4) 99 88-112
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 88 81-95
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 89 81-96
Serum (n=4) 89 82-97


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human Glypican 3 were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: Glypican 3

The glypicans (GPC) constitute a family of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored, heparan sulfate proteoglycans. Six members of this family have been identified in mammals (GPC1-GPC6). All glypican core proteins contain an N-terminal signal peptide, a large globular cysteine-rich domain (CRD) with 14 invariant cysteine residues, a stalk-like region containing the heparan sulfate attachment sites, and a C-terminal GPI attachment site.

Mutations in Glypican 3 cause a rare disorder in humans, Simpson-Golabi-Behmel Syndrome, which is characterized by pre- and postnatal overgrowth of multiple tissues and organs and an increased risk for developing embryonic tumors. These features are also present in the mouse knock-out of Glypican 3 indicating that Glypican 3 regulates cell survival and inhibits cell proliferation during development. Glypican 3 has been implicated in regulating many different signaling pathways including: IGF, FGF, BMP and Wnt. An endoproteolytic processing of Glypican 3 by proprotein convertases is required for the modulation of Wnt signaling. Direct interaction of Glypican 3 with FGF-basic has been observed and is mediated by the heparan sulfate chains.

Assay Procedure

Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.

Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

  5. 100 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
  6.   Add 100 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

  8. 200 µL Conjugate
  9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on the shaker.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

  11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

  13. 50 µL Stop Solution
  14.   Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.

  1. Which isoform(s) does R&D Systems Human Glypican 3 Quantikine ELISA kit (Catalog DGLY30) detect?

    • The Human Glypican 3 Quantikine ELISA Kit is designed to detect Human Glypican 3 isoform 1, and we have confirmed this in-house. It is possible that the assay also detects other Human Glypican 3 isoforms, however, R&D Systems has not performed this evaluation.
