MBS280753 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the 8-epi Prostaglandin F2alpha (8-epi-PGF2a) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing 8-epi-PGF2a. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS280753 kit is based on 8-epi-PGF2a antibody-8-epi-PGF2a antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect 8-epi-PGF2a antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, 8-epi-PGF2a. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Principle of the Assay: This assay employs a two-site sandwich ELISA to quantitate FBN1 in samples. An antibody specific for FBN1 has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and anyFBN1 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for FBN1 is added to the wells. After washing, Streptavidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Following a wash to remove any unbound avidin-enzyme reagent, a substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of FBN1 bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

NCBI Summary for 8-epi-PGF2a
This gene encodes a member of the fibrillin family of proteins. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate two proteins including the extracellular matrix component fibrillin-1 and the protein hormone asprosin. Fibrillin-1 is an extracellular matrix glycoprotein that serves as a structural component of calcium-binding microfibrils. These microfibrils provide force-bearing structural support in elastic and nonelastic connective tissue throughout the body. Asprosin, secreted by white adipose tissue, has been shown to regulate glucose homeostasis. Mutations in this gene are associated with Marfan syndrome and the related MASS phenotype, as well as ectopia lentis syndrome, Weill-Marchesani syndrome, Shprintzen-Goldberg syndrome and neonatal progeroid syndrome.

UniProt Comments for 8-epi-PGF2a
FBN1: a structural component of the 10-12 nm diameter microfibrils of the extracellular matrix, which conveys both structural and regulatory properties to load-bearing connective tissues. FBN1-containing microfibrils provide long-term force bearing structural support. In tissues such as the lung, blood vessels and skin, microfibrils form the periphery of the elastic fiber, acting as a scaffold for the deposition of elastin. In addition, microfibrils can occur as elastin-independent networks in tissues such as the ciliary zonule, tendon, cornea and glomerulus where they provide tensile strength and have anchoring roles. Plays a key role in tissue homeostasis through specific interactions with growth factors, such as the bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), growth and differentiation factors and latent transforming growth factor-beta-binding proteins, cell-surface integrins and other extracellular matrix protein and proteoglycan components. Regulates osteoblast maturation by controlling TGF-beta bioavailability and calibrating TGF-beta and BMP levels, respectively. Negatively regulates osteoclastogenesis by binding and sequestering an osteoclast differentiation and activation factor TNFSF11. This leads to disruption of TNFSF11-induced Ca2+ signaling and impairment of TNFSF11-mediated nuclear translocation and activation of transcription factor NFATC1 which regulates genes important for osteoclast differentiation and function. Mediates cell adhesion via its binding to cell surface receptors integrins ITGB3 and ITGB1. Binds heparin and this interaction has an important role in the assembly of microfibrils. Cleavage of N- and C-termini is required for incorporation into the extracellular matrix and assembly into microfibrils. Its cleaved C-terminal peptide (2732 ¿ 2871) is the hormone asprosin, secreted by white adipose tissue that targets the liver, stimulating the release of glucose and increasing plasma glucose levels. Acts in response to fasting, and promotes hepathocyte glucose release via a PKA-dependent pathway.
