Natural and recombinant mouse LDL R. This kit also recognizes PCSK9/LDL R Complex.
< 0.5% cross-reactivity observed with available related molecules.< 50% cross-species reactivity observed with species tested.
No significant interference observed with available related molecules.
The Quantikine Mouse LDL R Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse LDL R levels in cell culture supernates, tissue homogenates, serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant mouse LDL R and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant mouse LDL R accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse LDL R 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 LDL R.
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 LDL R 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 LDL R 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.
Background: LDL R
LDL R (Low Density Lipoprotein Receptor) is a widely expressed cell surface scavenger receptor. LDL R binds ApoB and ApoE, the apolipoproteins of low- and very low-density lipoproteins (LDL and VLDL), respectively. Hepatocyte LDL R is responsible for endocytosis and clearing of most plasma LDL cholesterol. At the low pH of the endocytic vesicle, it dissociates, allowing degradation of LDL and recycling of LDL R to the cell surface. Lack of LDL R expression or function causes familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). The protease PCSK9 can also cause increased plasma cholesterol by promoting LDL R degradation rather than recycling to the cell surface.
