The Quantikine Mouse Clusterin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse Clusterin levels in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant mouse Clusterin and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant factor accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse Clusterin showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse Clusterin.
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 Clusterin spiked into various matrices was evaluated.

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing high concentrations of mouse Clusterin were serially 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.
Clusterin, also known as Apolipoprotein J, Sulfated Glycoprotein 2 (SGP-2), TRPM-2, and SP-40,40, is a secreted multifunctional protein that binds a wide range of molecules and may function as a chaperone of misfolded extracellular proteins. It also participates in the control of cell proliferation, apoptosis, and carcinogenesis. Clusterin is predominantly expressed in adult testis, ovary, adrenal gland, liver, heart, and brain and in many epithelial tissues during embryonic development. It is secreted as a disulfide-linked heterodimer of alpha and beta chains and circulates as a component of high density lipoprotein (HDL) particles. Clusterin exerts tissue protective functions in atherosclerosis and Alzheimer’s disease by binding and neutralizing non-oxidatively modified LDL reduces cytotoxicity and beta-amyloid fibrils, respectively. Increased circulating levels of Clusterin enhance tumor aggressiveness by inhibiting apoptosis and by promoting epithelial to mesenchymal transition.
