The Quantikine Human Neuropilin-1 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Neuropilin-1 in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, plasma, urine, and human milk. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Neuropilin-1 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human Neuropilin-1 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human Neuropilin-1.
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 Neuropilin-1 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human Neuropilin-1 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.
Neuropilin-1 (Npn-1, previously known as neuropilin) and Neuropilin-2 (previously known as Npn-1-related molecule) are type I transmembrane proteins that bind distinct members of the class III secreted semaphorin subfamily that are implicated in repulsive axon guidance. Neuropilin extracellular domains contain two CUB (complement-binding) domains, two domains with homology to coagulation factors V and VIII, and a MAM (meprin) domain. In the absence of ligands, neuropilins can form homo- and hetero-oligomers via their MAM domains. Expression in developing neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems is somewhat overlapping but distinct. Npn-1 and Npn-2 are also receptors for VEGF165 on endothelial and tumor cells.
