Typical Testing Data/Standard Curve (for reference only)
Principle of the assay: This kit was based on sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. Anti-uPAR polyclonal antibody was pre-coated onto 96-well plates. And the biotin conjugated anti-uPAR polyclonal antibody was used as detection antibodies. The standards, test samples and biotin conjugated detection antibody were added to the wells subsequently, and wash with wash buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with wash buffer. TMB substrates were used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the uPAR amount of sample captured in plate. Read the O.D. absorbance at 450nm in a microplate reader, and then the concentration of uPAR can be calculated.
Background: The Urokinase receptor, also known as uPA receptor or uPAR or CD87 (Cluster of Differentiation 87), is multidomain glycoprotein tethered to the cell membrane with a glycosylphosphotidylinositol (GPI) anchor. uPAR was originally identified as a saturable binding site for urokinase on the cell surface. It consists of three different domains of the Ly- 6/uPAR/ alpha-neurotoxin family. All three domains are necessary for high affinity binding of the primary ligand, urokinase. uPAR is a part of the plasminogen activation system, which in the healthy body is involved in tissue reorganization events such as mammary gland involution and wound healing. It is a key molecule in the regulation of cell-surface plasminogen activation, and plays an important role in many normal as well as pathologic processes.
Samples: Human serum, plasma, body fluids, tissue lysates or cell culture supernates
Assay Type: Sandwich
Detection Range: 62.5pg/ml-4000pg/ml
Sensitivity: <4pg/ml. Intended Uses: For detection of uPAR in human serum, plasma, body fluids, tissue lysates or cell culture supernates. For research use only, not for use in diagnostic procedures. uPAR ELISA 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.
