Product Summary
The Quantikine Mouse/Rat WISP-1/CCN4 immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure WISP-1 in mouse or rat cell culture supernates, tissue lysates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant mouse WISP-1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate
the recombinant mouse WISP-1. Results obtained using natural mouse or rat WISP-1 showed dose response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine mouse kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural WISP-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 a known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision. Assays were performed by at least three technicians using two lots of kit components.

The recovery of WISP-1 spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Samples (n=4) 104 89-119
Cell Lysates (n=4) 89 80-111
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 110 96-119
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 104 81-120
Serum (n=4) 104 90-119
Urine (n=4) 107 90-120
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing high concentrations of WISP-1 were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Background: WISP-1/CCN4
WISP-1 belongs to the CCN (CTGF/CYR61/NOV) family of secreted proteins that share a common multimodular organization. Each family member has an IGFBP domain, a von Willebrand type C domain, a thrombospondin 1 domain and a C-terminal cysteine knot domain. Depending on cell context, WISP-1 can either promote or inhibit tumorigenesis.
