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

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

Preparation and Storage
  • Storage
    Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
TRANCE (TNF-related activation-induced cytokines), also known as RANK Ligand, OPGL, or ODF, is a TNF superfamily ligand produced by osteoblasts, bone marrow stromal cells, and activated T cells. It signals through RANK and is antagonized by the decoy receptor Osteoprotegerin. TRANCE stimulates bone resorption, is required for osteoclast differentiation, and is associated with the development of osteoporosis, vascular calcification, osteopetrosis, and progestin-induced breast cancer. It also mediates body temperature regulation and is essential for the development of a lactating mammary gland.
