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

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 MDC spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Supernates (n=7) 102 87-112
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 94 89-98
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 90 80-109
Serum (n=5) 91 82-100
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of mouse MDC in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.

Background: CCL22/MDC
Macrophage-derived chemokine (MDC), also named stimulated T cell chemotactic protein (STCP-1) and ABCD-1, and now designated as CCL22, is a CC chemokine initially isolated from clones of monocyte-derived macrophages. At the amino acid sequence level, MDC shows less than 35% identity to other CC chemokine family members. Human MDC is expressed in dendritic cells, macrophages and activated monocytes. In addition, MDC expression is detected in thymus, lymph node and appendix tissues. At the amino acid sequence level, mouse and human MDC share 64% identity and 83% similarity.

    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.
    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.
    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. 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.
