The Quantikine Mouse BLC/BCA-1 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure mouse BLC/BCA-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse BLC/BCA-1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural mouse BLC/BCA-1 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 BLC/BCA-1.
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 BLC/BCA-1 spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Supernates (n=4)
EDTA Plasma (n=7)
Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples spiked with high concentrations of mouse BLC/BCA-1 in each matrix were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
CXCL13/BLC/BCA-1 is a constitutively expressed chemokine that plays an important role in B and T cell homing. It is expressed by salivary gland epithelium, dendritic cells, osteoclasts, and peritoneal macrophages. It can form homodimers or heterodimers with FGF basic, and it signals through CXCR3 or CXCR5. CXCL13 induces the migration of naïve B cells and a subset of memory T cells to lymphoid tissue. It also promotes B1 cell migration into the omentum and peritoneum. In the fetus, CXCL13 attracts CD4+ CD3- IL-7 R alpha+ hematopoietic cells to sites of future Peyer’s patch development.
