This DuoSet ELISA Development kit contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs to measure natural and recombinant human Klotho beta. The suggested diluent is suitable for the analysis of most cell culture supernate samples. Diluents for complex matrices, such as serum and plasma, should be evaluated prior to use in this DuoSet ELISA.
Optimized capture and detection antibody pairings with recommended concentrations save lengthy development time
Development protocols are provided to guide further assay optimization
Assay can be customized to your specific needs

Background: Klotho beta
The Klotho proteins, Klotho and Klotho beta (beta KL), are type I transmembrane glycoproteins with extracellular regions that contain two beta-glycosidase-like repeats. Klotho has both membrane-bound and soluble forms; the soluble form predominates and consists of only the first beta-glycosidase-like repeat. Klotho has beta-glucuronidase activity against select steroid beta-glucuronides, appears to regulate calcium and vitamin D levels in serum, and is associated with premature aging.
Klotho beta, a divergent structural member of the glycosidase I superfamily, is primarily expressed in the liver and pancreas, with lower expression in adipose tissue. Klotho beta mediates the interaction of FGF-15 (human FGF-19) with FGF Receptor 4 in the liver, which negatively regulates bile acid synthesis by controlling the secretion of two key bile acid synthase genes. Klotho beta is also a cofactor for the interaction of FGF-21 with FGF Receptor 1c in adipocytes. The expression pattern of Klotho beta suggests it may play a role in lipid metabolism.
