Typical Testing Data/Standard Curve
Background/Introduction: Green fluorescent protein (GFP) is a spontaneously fluorescent protein isolated from the pacific jellyfish, Aequorea victoria. It transduces the blue chemiluminescence into green fluorescent light. Since the molecular cloning of GFP cDNA and demonstration of GFP as a functional transgene, GFP has become a powerful tool with exciting applications in developmental, cell and molecular biology. GFP fluorescence is not species specific and can be expressed in bacteria, yeast, plant and mammalian cells. GFP can fuse with proteins of interest without interfering significantly with their assembly and function. Based on the structure of the GFP molecule, many GFP variants have been created with much improved fluorescence emission, or shifted excitation or emission spectra that are well suited for fluorescence microscopy and flow cytometry. Although GFP expression can be easily detected under a fluorescence microscope, GFP fluorescence intensity varies from cell to cell because of the heterogeneity nature of GFP expression. In order to quantitate the GFP expression in cells, FACS analysis is usually required, which is both expensive and time consuming. MBS GFP ELISA Kit is an enzyme immunoassay developed for detection and quantitation of GFP or GFP fusion protein in cell or tissue samples. The quantity of GFP or its variants (including BFP, CFP and YFP) in an unknown sample is determined by comparing its absorbance with that of a known recombinant GFP standard curve. The kit has detection sensitivity limit of 30 pg/mL GFP. The kit also provides an efficient system for rapid quantitation of GFP lentivirus titer for both viral supernatant and purified virus. Each kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 96 assays including standard curve and GFP samples.
GFP ELISA Kit or ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbant assays) Kits in general, are a valuable research tool for a myriad of applications in a range of scientific settings. Currently, three major types of ELISA formats are used by researchers: sandwich, competitive and indirect. Most commercially available ELISA Kits are sandwich or competitive. Commercially available ELISA Kits contain wells that have been pre-coated with the capture antibody. Please refer to the product manual for the ELISA format of your specific kit.
