The Quantikine Rat Total Adiponectin Immunoassay is a 2.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure rat Adiponectin levels in cell culture supernates, tissue lysates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant rat Adiponectin and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant rat Adiponectin accurately. Results obtained using natural rat Adiponectin showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant kit standards.These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural rat Adiponectin.
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.
The recovery of rat Adiponectin spiked to three levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Cell Culture Samples (n=6)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of rat Adiponectin were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
Adiponectin (also known as Adipocyte complement-related protein of 30 kDa, Acrp30) is an adipocyte-derived protein with wide ranging paracrine and endocrine effects on metabolism and inflammation. It promotes adipocyte differentiation, fatty acid catabolism, and insulin sensitivity and is negatively correlated with obesity, type 2 diabetes, and atherogenesis. Adiponectin associates into 70 kDa noncovalently-linked trimers that are disulfide-linked into medium molecular weight hexamers and then into >300 kDa high molecular weight oligomers.
