Product Summary
The Quantikine Mouse PF4 Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure mouse PF4 in cell culture supernates, serum, and platelet-poor plasma. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant mouse PF4 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant factor accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse PF4 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 PF4.

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.

Background: CXCL4/PF4
CXCL4/PF4 is a secreted chemokine that is expressed by megakaryocytes and restrains the coagulation cascade. It is released by activated platelets and regulates Thrombin/Thrombomodulin complexes, activated Protein C (APC), Coagulation Factor Xa, and Fibrin. The anticoagulant heparin neutralizes CXCL4 procoagulant effects. Complexes of heparin and CXCL4 trigger antibody formation that causes the pathological syndrome HITT. Immunogenic complexes of CXCL4 with Apolipoprotein H contribute to antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). CXCL4 interferes with the proliferative and angiogenic functions of FGF-2 and VEGF. However, it can also exert proinflammatory and pro-atherogenic effects on monocytes, macrophages, and endothelial cells. CXCL4 may signal through CXCR3B in humans.

    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.
