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

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.

Mouse Cell Culture Supernates (n=7) 98 87-106
Rat Cell Culture Supernates (n=7) 93 82-107
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing mouse or rat OPN were diluted with Calibrator Diluent and then assayed.

Background: Osteopontin/OPN
Osteopontin (OPN), also known as bone sialoprotein (BSP), is a secreted SIBLING family protein that can be variably modified by O- and N-glycosylation, sulfation, phosphorylation, and transglutamination. OPN is widely expressed and is prominent in mineralized tissues. It inhibits bone mineralization and kidney stone formation and promotes inflammation, cell ad¬hesion, and migration. Its expression is upregulat¬ed during inflammation, obesity, atherosclerosis, cancer, and tissue damage and contributes to the pathophysiology of these conditions. The central region of OPN contains RGD and non-RGD binding sites for multiple integrins. Adjacent to the RGD motif is the sequence SLAYGLR (SVVYGLR in human) which serves as a cryptic binding site for additional integrins: it is masked in full length OPN but is exposed following OPN cleavage by multiple proteases in tumors and sites of tissue injury.
