The Quantikine Mouse Chemerin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure Chemerin in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse mature Chemerin and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant mouse Chemerin. Results obtained using natural mouse Chemerin showed dose response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine mouse kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse Chemerin.
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 Chemerin spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay was evaluated.
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Samples (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing high concentrations of mouse Chemerin in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and assayed.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Chemerin, also known as Tazarotene-induced Gene 2, (Tig-2), is a member of the Cystatin superfamily. Chemerin is synthesized as a 163 aa precursor that contains a hydrophobic 20 aa N-terminal sequence, an intervening 137 aa Cystatin fold-containing domain, and a six aa C-terminal prosegment. It is activated by proteases of the coagulation, fibrinolytic, and inflammatory cascades. Chemerin is a chemoattractant for cells bearing the Chem R23 receptor, including plasmacytoid dendritic cells and tissue macrophages.
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.
