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

Intended Uses
This MOA ELISA kit is a 1.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed for the quantitative determination of Rat MOA. This ELISA kit for research use only, not for therapeutic or diagnostic applications!
Preparation and Storage
Store all reagents at 2-8 degree C.
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 MAOA 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.

MBS721413 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Monoamine oxidase A (MAOA) 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 MAOA. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS721413 kit is based on MAOA antibody-MAOA antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect MAOA antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, MAOA. 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: MOA ELISA kit applies the competitive enzyme immunoassay technique utilizing a monoclonal anti-MOA antibody and an MOA-HRP conjugate. The assay sample and buffer are incubated together with MOA-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 MOA concentration since MOA from samples and MOA-HRP conjugate compete for the anti-MOA antibody binding site. Since the number of sites is limited, as more sites are occupied by MOA from the sample, fewer sites are left to bind MOA-HRP conjugate. A standard curve is plotted relating the intensity of the color (O.D.) to the concentration of standards. The MOA concentration in each sample is interpolated from this standard curve.

NCBI Summary for MAOA
This gene is one of two neighboring gene family members that encode mitochondrial enzymes which catalyze the oxidative deamination of amines, such as dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin. Mutation of this gene results in Brunner syndrome. This gene has also been associated with a variety of other psychiatric disorders, including antisocial behavior. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
UniProt Comments for MAOA
MAOA: Catalyzes the oxidative deamination of biogenic and xenobiotic amines and has important functions in the metabolism of neuroactive and vasoactive amines in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. MAOA preferentially oxidizes biogenic amines such as 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), norepinephrine and epinephrine. Defects in MAOA are the cause of Brunner syndrome (BRUNS). Brunner syndrome is a form of X-linked non- dysmorphic mild mental retardation. Male patients are affected by a syndrome of borderline mental retardation and exhibit abnormal behavior, including disturbed regulation of impulsive aggression. Obligate female carriers have normal intelligence and behavior. Belongs to the flavin monoamine oxidase family.

Protein type: Xenobiotic Metabolism - drug metabolism - cytochrome P450; Amino Acid Metabolism - tyrosine; Oxidoreductase; EC; Amino Acid Metabolism - phenylalanine; Amino Acid Metabolism - tryptophan; Membrane protein, integral; Amino Acid Metabolism - histidine; Amino Acid Metabolism - glycine, serine and threonine; Amino Acid Metabolism - arginine and proline
