Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 734 for Human BAFF/BLyS
Quantikine Immunoassay Control Set 734 for Human BAFF/BLyS Summary
INTENDED USE & DESCRIPTION
For use as quantitative controls for the determination of cytokine concentrations in biological fluids. Concentrations have been assigned using R&D Systems’ Quantikine® kits. Controls are prepared in a buffered protein solution with preservatives. They contain recombinant human cytokines at low, medium and high concentrations. Controls are supplied lyophilized.
STORAGE & STABILITY
Unreconstituted Controls should be stored at 2-8 °C and are stable for at least 6 months from date of receipt. Depending on the analyte of interest, reconstituted controls may be stable when stored at < -20 °C. Users should evaluate the frozen stability of the controls in their application or discard after use.
Reconstitute each vial with the volume of deionized or distilled water indicated on the product datasheet.
PROCEDURE & EXPECTED VALUES
Controls should be assayed in the same manner as unknown specimens.
The acceptable ranges for the analytes in these controls are printed on the product datasheet. Due to possible variations in techniques and methodologies, it is recommended that each laboratory determine its own target range. Laboratories using other test systems should establish their own acceptable ranges as these assays may produce different values.
TECHNICAL HINTS & LIMITATIONS OF THE PROCEDURE
• The ranges were determined using R&D Systems’ Quantikine kits. If expected values are not obtained, verify that the lot numbers on the vials correspond with the lot numbers listed above and the correct volume of deionized or distilled water was used for reconstitution of the controls.
• The results obtained with these controls depend upon several factors associated with methods and instrumentation. Test systems other than those supplied by R&D Systems may result in values that differ from those printed on this product datasheet.
BAFF (B-cell activating factor), also known as BLyS, TALL-1, THANK, and TNFSF13B, is a TNF superfamily ligand that plays a critical role in the development and survival of B lineage cells. It can be expressed as a homotrimer or as a heteromer in association with the related protein APRIL. It is produced by many hematopoietic cell types, and a soluble form can be released by activated neutrophils. Both BAFF and APRIL signal through the receptors BCMA and TACI, and BAFF additionally signals through BAFF R. Mice that overexpress BAFF exhibit elevated B cell numbers, increased formation and size of germinal centers, and symptoms of autoimmunity. In addition, BAFF costimulates T cell activation, promotes a Th1 biased immune response, and promotes the expansion of Treg cells.
