Human Phospho-Histone H2AX (S139) DuoSet IC ELISA Summary

Assay Type
Solid Phase Sandwich ELISA
96-well strip plate
Sample Volume Required
Cell lysates (100 µL)
Sufficient Materials
Kits available for two, five, or fifteen 96-well plates*
Please see the product datasheet

* Provided that the recommended microplates, buffers, diluents, substrates and solutions are used, and the assay is run as summarized in the Assay Procedure provided.

This DuoSet IC ELISA contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs to measure phosphorylated human Histone H2AX (S139) in cell lysates. An immobilized capture antibody specific for Histone H2AX binds both phosphorylated and unphosphorylated Histone H2AX. After washing away unbound material, a biotinylated detection antibody is used to detect only phosphorylated receptor, utilizing a standard HRP format.

Scientific Data

Standard Curve

The Human Phospho-Axl DuoSet IC ELISA is more sensitive than immunoprecipitation (IP)-Western blot analysis. A172 human glioblastoma cells were treated with Gas-6-containing conditioned media1 from the human lung cell line, WI38, for fifteen minutes to induce tyrosine phosphorylation of Axl. Lysates were serially diluted and analyzed by (A) IP-Western blot and (B) this DuoSet IC ELISA. IPs were done using an Anti-Human Axl Monoclonal Antibody and Anti-Mouse IgG Agarose. Immunoblots were incubated with a Biotinylated Anti-Human Phospho-tyrosine Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAM1676) to detect phospho-Axl. Bands were visualized with Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by chemiluminescent detection.

The Human Phospho-Axl DuoSet IC ELISA detects ligand-induced Axl tyrosine phosphorylation. A172 cells were untreated or treated with Gas-6-containing conditioned media1 from the human lung cell line, WI38, for 15 minutes. ELISA and IP-Western blot (inset) analyses were done using 100 µg and 400 µg of lysate, respectively. IP-Western blots for phospho-Axl (p-Axl) were done as described in Figure 1. Blots were stripped and total Axl (Axl) was detected using a Biotinylated Anti-Human Axl Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # BAF154).

The specificity of the Human Phospho-Axl DuoSet IC ELISA is confirmed by receptor competition. A172 cells were treated with Gas-6-containing conditioned media1 from the human lung cell line, WI38, for 15 minutes. The indicated amounts of recombinant extracellular domains of human Axl/Fc Chimera (Catalog # 154-AL), human Dtk/Fc Chimera (Catalog # 859-DK) or human TrkA/Fc Chimera (Catalog # 175-TK) were added to 125 µg of lysate and analyzed using this DuoSet IC ELISA. Competition was observed only with recombinant human Axl.

Background: Histone H2AX

Histone H2AX is one of a number of core histone proteins. In the cellular response to genotoxic insults, ATM and related protein kinases phosphorylate the carboxyl-terminal tail of the H2AX protein (gamma-H2AX). gamma-H2AX marks the site of damage and provides a nucleation site for the formation of damage response and repair complexes. BRCA1 carboxyl terminal (BRCT) domain-containing proteins are recruited to gamma-H2AX to create a protein scaffold for further assembly of signaling complexes.
