3D Structure
ModBase 3D Structure for P47713
Species Reactivity
This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for detection of mouse cPLA2. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between mouse cPLA2 and analogues was observed.
Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, Cell lysates
Assay Type
Detection Range
62.5 pg/ml -4000 pg/ml.
The minimum detectable dose of mouse cPLA2 is typically less than 15.6 pg/ml. The sensitivity of this assay, or Lower Limit of Detection (LLD) was defined as the lowest protein concentration that could be differentiated from zero. It was determined the mean O.D value of 20 replicates of the zero standard added by their three standard deviations.
Intra-assay Precision
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%. Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.
Inter-assay Precision
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%. Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.
Preparation and Storage
Unopened test kits should be stored at 2 to 8 degree C upon receipt. Please refer to pdf manual for further storage instructions.
ISO Certification
Manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 Certified Laboratory.
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 PLA2G4A 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.
Searchable Terms forPLA2G4Apurchase
MBS705411 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the phospholipase A2, group IVA (cytosolic, calcium-dependent) (PLA2G4A) 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 PLA2G4A. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS705411 kit is based on PLA2G4A antibody-PLA2G4A antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect PLA2G4A antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, PLA2G4A. 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 the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. Antibody specific for cPLA2 has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any cPLA2 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for cPLA2 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 cPLA2 bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

NCBI Summary for PLA2G4A
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the phospholipase A2 group IV family. This enzyme hydrolyzes membrane phospholipids, thereby releasing the polyunsaturated fatty acid, arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is further metabolized into eicosanoids such as leukotrienes, thromboxanes and prostaglandins, that play important roles in regulating diverse biological processes such as inflammatory responses, membrane and actin dynamics, and tumorigenesis. A rise in intracellular calcium levels results in binding of calcium to the C2 domain of this protein, and triggers the translocation from the cytosol to intracellular membranes, including the Golgi apparatus. Disruption of this gene in mice led to decreased levels of eicosonaoids and platelet-activating factor, decreased allergic symptoms, and impaired reproductive ability in females. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2015]
UniProt Comments for PLA2G4A
Function: Selectively hydrolyzes arachidonyl phospholipids in the sn-2 position releasing arachidonic acid. Together with its lysophospholipid activity, it is implicated in the initiation of the inflammatory response.

Catalytic activity: Phosphatidylcholine + H2O = 1-acylglycerophosphocholine + a carboxylate.

Enzyme regulation: Stimulated by agonists such as ATP, EGF, thrombin and bradykinin as well as by cytosolic Ca2+.
