Searchable Terms for DCDpurchase
MBS700974 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the dermcidin (DCD) 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 DCD. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS700974 kit is based on DCD antibody-DCD antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect DCD antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, DCD. 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(%).

DCD elisa kit
Principle of the Assay: This assay employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. Antibody specific for PIF/DCD has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any PIF/DCD present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for PIF/DCD is added to the wells. After washing, avidin 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 PIF/DCD bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

NCBI Summary for DCD
This gene encodes a secreted protein that is subsequently processed into mature peptides of distinct biological activities. The C-terminal peptide is constitutively expressed in sweat and has antibacterial and antifungal activities. The N-terminal peptide, also known as diffusible survival evasion peptide, promotes neural cell survival under conditions of severe oxidative stress. A glycosylated form of the N-terminal peptide may be associated with cachexia (muscle wasting) in cancer patients. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2014]
UniProt Comments for DCD
Function: DCD-1 displays antimicrobial activity thereby limiting skin infection by potential pathogens in the first few hours after bacterial colonization. Highly effective against E.coli, E.faecalis, S.aureus and C.albicans. Optimal pH and salt concentration resemble the conditions in sweat. Also exhibits proteolytic activity.1 PublicationManual assertion based on experiment in:Ref.5

Catalytic activity: Preferential cleavage: Arg-|-Xaa, Lys-|-Xaa.

Cofactor: Manganese. Required for survival-promoting peptide.
