Product Summary

The Quantikine® Human Pentraxin 3/TSG-14 Immunoassay is a 5.0 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Pentraxin 3 in serum-free cell culture supernates, plasma, and saliva. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Pentraxin 3 and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Natural human Pentraxin 3 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 natural human
Pentraxin 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

Saliva (n=4) 89 79-99
Serum-free Cell Culture Media (n=2) 109 100-120


To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of human Pentraxin 3 were serially diluted with calibrator diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: Pentraxin 3/TSG-14

Pentraxin 3 (PTX3), also known as TNF-stimulated gene 14 (TSG-14), is a secreted glycoprotein belonging to the Pentraxin family of proteins. It is the prototypical long Pentraxin, exhibiting a C-terminal Pentraxin domain characteristic of the family, and a unique N-terminal domain. It is produced by several cell types including endothelial and mononuclear cells. PTX3 acts as a pattern recognition receptor with non-redundant roles in the innate immune response to several microbial agents including the fungal pathogen Aspergillus fumigatus. Overexpression leads to enhanced pro-inflammatory responses. PTX3 is induced in response to LPS and inflammatory cytokines including TNF-alpha and IL-1 beta.
