QC154, Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 774 for Human Renin - Please Inquire
The Quantikine Human Renin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human mature Renin and Prorenin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Renin and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human Renin 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 Renin.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.
The recovery of Renin 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 Renin were serially 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.
Renin is a secreted endopeptidase that plays a crucial role in the regulation of blood pressure and salt balance through the cleavage of angiotensinogen, which is the only known physiological substrate of Renin. The 406 aa precursor includes a signal peptide (aa 1 - 23), a propeptide (aa 24 - 66), and a mature chain (aa 67 - 406). The amino acid sequence of human Renin is 100%, 73%, 71% and 67% identical to that of chimpanzee, canine, mouse and rat.
Mouse Renin is a secreted, 42 - 47 kDa glycosylated member of the peptidase A1 family. It is an aspartyl protease that cleaves angiotensinogen to form angiotensin I. In mouse, there are two genes that code for Renin. One is in the submandibular gland and the other is in the kidney. The two mature Renin molecules are 95% amino acid (aa) identical. Renal Renin (Renin-1) is synthesized as a 381 aa proform (aa 22 - 402). In the kidney, prorenin is proteolytically cleaved after Thr71 to generate a mature enzyme. Mouse pro-renin shares 70% and 85% aa sequence identity with human and rat pro-renin, respectively.
