Product Summary
The Quantikine Mouse MIP-3 alpha Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure mouse MIP-3 alpha in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse MIP-3 alpha and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural mouse MIP-3 alpha 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 mouse MIP-3 alpha.

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 mouse MIP-3 alpha spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %

Heparin Plasma (n=4) 98 85-115
Serum (n=4) 106 95-119
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with recombinant mouse MIP-3 alpha in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.

Background: CCL20/MIP-3 alpha
Macrophage inflammatory protein 3 alpha (MIP-3 alpha), also known as LARC (liver and activation-regulated chemokine) and as exodus-1, is one of many novel CC chemokines identified through bioinformatics. MIP-3 alpha is distantly related to other CC chemokines (20 - 28% amino acid sequence identity). Rat MIP-3 alpha shares approximately 70% and 61% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and human MIP-3 alpha, respectively.

Assay Procedure
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.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 50 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 50 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 on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 4 times for a total of 5 washes.

  8. 100 µL Conjugate
  9.   Add 100 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on the shaker.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 5 times.

  11. 100 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 100 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

  13. 100 µL Stop Solution
  14.   Add 100 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
