Product Summary
The Quantikine Human uPAR Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human uPAR in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human uPAR and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. It has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human uPAR 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 of natural human uPAR.

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.

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of uPAR were diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: uPAR
The urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) is one of two activators that converts plasminogen to plasmin. uPA binds with high-affinity to the cell surface via the GPI-linked receptor uPAR, which serves to localize uPA proteolytic activity. Human uPAR cDNA encodes a 335 amino acid (aa) precursor protein with a 22 aa signal peptide, five potential N-linked glycosylation sites and a C-terminal GPI-anchor site.
    • Long Name
      Urokinase-type Plasminogen Activator Receptor
    • Entrez Gene IDs
      5329 (Human); 18793 (Mouse);
    • Alternate Names
      CD87 antigen; CD87; Monocyte activation antigen Mo3; plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor; PLAUR; uPAR; U-PAR; UPARurokinase plasminogen activator surface receptor; u-plasminogen activator receptor form 2; URKRMO3;

    3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
    4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

    5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
    6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours.
    7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

    8. 200 µL Conjugate
    9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours.
    10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

    11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
    12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.
