The Quantikine Human Serpin E1 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Serpin E1 in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, and plasma. It contains Sf 21-expressed recombinant human Serpin E1 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor in its active and latent forms as well as in the vitronectin complexes. However, the kit does not detect recombinant human Serpin E1 in complexes with recombinant human uPA and recombinant human tPA. Results obtained using natural human Serpin E1 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 Serpin E1.
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 Serpin E1 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 Serpin E1 were serially diluted with the 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.
Background: Serpin E1/PAI-1
The human serpin superfamily consists of at least 35 members that target not only serine proteases, but also selected cysteine proteases and non-protease proteins. Serpins bind the protease active site resulting in a major conformational rearrangement that traps the enzyme in a covalent acyl-enzyme intermediate. As protease inhibitors, serpins have an array of functions including regulating blood clotting, the complement pathway, extracellular matrix remodeling, and cell motility. They are also involved in activities that extend beyond their ability to inhibit proteases. For instance, they may also regulate blood pressure, angiogenesis, or act as storage/transport proteins.
