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
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
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.
Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.
Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.
