QC223, Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 893 Human S100A8/S100A9 - Please Inquire
The Quantikine Human S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer in cell culture supernates, tissue lysastes, serum, plasma, saliva, urine, human milk, and fecal extract. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant human S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer 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 S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer.
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 S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Background: S100A8/S100A9 Heterodimer
S100A8 (also MRP8 and calgranulin A) is a 10 kDa member of the S100 family, EF-hand superfamily of Ca-binding proteins. It is produced by neutrophils and monocytes, and forms Ca2+-dependent heterodimer/heterotetramer complexes (termed calprotectin) with S100A9. It functions both intracellularly and extracellularly, where it binds to RAGE and CD36. Human S100A8 is 93 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains two EF-hand motifs (aa 12 - 47 and 46 - 81) and one high-affinity Ca2+-binding site (aa 59 - 70). There may be one splice form that shows a 15 aa substitution for the C-terminal 14 amino acids. Although mouse S100A8 is cleaved by MMP-2 after Asn21, it is unclear if human S100A8 is susceptible. Full-length human S100A8 is 57% and 74% aa identical to mouse and canine S100A8, respectively.
