Product Summary

The Quantikine Mouse OPG Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse OPG in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant mouse OPG and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate recombinant mouse OPG accurately. Results obtained using natural mouse OPG showed dose response 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 natural mouse OPG.


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: Osteoprotegerin/TNFRSF11B

Osteoprotegerin (OPG), also known as OCIF and TNFRSF11B, is a secreted TNF superfamily receptor that regulates bone density. OPG is widely expressed and constitutively released as a homodimer by mesenchymal stem cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. OPG functions as a decoy receptor for TRANCE/RANK L and TRAIL. OPG regulates the cell surface expression of TRANCE and its ability to stimulate osteoclastogenesis. Dysregulation of OPG/TRANCE interactions can lead to juvenile Paget’s disease, osteoporosis, bone loss, and vascular calcification.
