Species Reactivity
This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for detection of AKR1C3. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between AKR1C3 and analogues was observed. NOTE: Limited by current skills and knowledge, it is impossible for us to complete the cross-reactivity detection between AKR1C3 and all the analogues, therefore, cross reaction may still exist in some cases.

Sample Preparation
We suggest pre-experimenting with neat (undiluted) samples, 1:2 or 1:4 dilutions. Please avoid diluting your samples more than 1:10 as it would exceed the dilution limit set for this kit. If the expected concentration of the target is beyond the detection range of the kit, please contact our technical support team
Product Note
Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
Other Notes
Small volumes of AKR1C3 elisa kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

MBS7220102 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Aldo keto reductase family 1 member C3 (AKR1C3) 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 AKR1C3. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS7220102 kit is based on AKR1C3 antibody-AKR1C3 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect AKR1C3 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, AKR1C3. 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: AKR1C3 ELISA kit applies the competitive enzyme immunoassay technique utilizing a monoclonal anti-AKR1C3 antibody and an AKR1C3-HRP conjugate. The assay sample and buffer are incubated together with AKR1C3-HRP conjugate in pre-coated plate for one hour. After the incubation period, the wells are decanted and washed five times. The wells are then incubated with a substrate for HRP enzyme. The product of the enzyme-substrate reaction forms a blue colored complex. Finally, a stop solution is added to stop the reaction, which will then turn the solution yellow. The intensity of color is measured spectrophotometrically at 450nm in a microplate reader. The intensity of the color is inversely proportional to the AKR1C3 concentration since AKR1C3 from samples and AKR1C3-HRP conjugate compete for the anti-AKR1C3 antibody binding site. Since the number of sites is limited, as more sites are occupied by AKR1C3 from the sample, fewer sites are left to bind AKR1C3-HRP conjugate. A standard curve is plotted relating the intensity of the color (O.D.) to the concentration of standards. The AKR1C3 concentration in each sample is interpolated from this standard curve.

NCBI Summary for AKR1C3
This gene encodes a member of the aldo/keto reductase superfamily, which consists of more than 40 known enzymes and proteins. These enzymes catalyze the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to their corresponding alcohols by utilizing NADH and/or NADPH as cofactors. The enzymes display overlapping but distinct substrate specificity. This enzyme catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ), and the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to PGD2. It may play an important role in the pathogenesis of allergic diseases such as asthma, and may also have a role in controlling cell growth and/or differentiation. This gene shares high sequence identity with three other gene members and is clustered with those three genes at chromosome 10p15-p14. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
UniProt Comments for AKR1C3
AKR1C3: Catalyzes the conversion of aldehydes and ketones to alcohols. Catalyzes the reduction of prostaglandin (PG) D2, PGH2 and phenanthrenequinone (PQ) and the oxidation of 9-alpha,11-beta- PGF2 to PGD2. Functions as a bi-directional 3-alpha-, 17-beta- and 20-alpha HSD. Can interconvert active androgens, estrogens and progestins with their cognate inactive metabolites. Preferentially transforms androstenedione (4-dione) to testosterone. Belongs to the aldo/keto reductase family.
