 Searchable Terms for CLU purchase    MBS176539 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Clusterin, 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 CLU. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS176539 kit is based on CLU antibody-CLU antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect CLU antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, CLU. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as cell culture supernates, serum, plasma(heparin, EDTA), saliva and urine. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for CLU elisa kit

   Principle of the Assay: The Picokine™ Human CLU Pre-Coated ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is a solid phase immunoassay specially designed to measure Human CLU with a 96-well strip plate that is pre-coated with antibody specific for CLU. The detection antibody is a biotinylated antibody specific for CLU. The capture antibody is monoclonal antibody from mouse, the detection antibody is polyclonal antibody from goat. The kit contains recombinant Human CLU with immunogen: Expression system for standard: NSO; Immunogen sequence: D23-R227(beta)&S228-E449(alpha). The kit is analytically validated with ready to use reagents. To measure Human CLU, add standards and samples to the wells, then add the biotinylated detection antibody. Wash the wells with PBS or TBS buffer, and add Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex (ABC-HRP). Wash away the unbounded ABC-HRP with PBS or TBS buffer and add TMB. TMB is substrate to HRP and will be catalyzed to produce a blue color product, which changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of the yellow product is linearly propotional to Human CLU in the sample. Read the density of the yellow product in each well using a plate reader, and benchmark the sample wells' readings against the standard curve to determine the concentration of Human CLU in the sample. For more information on assay principle, protocols, and troubleshooting tips.

Background: Clusterin(apolipoprotein J) is a 75 - 80 kDa disulfide-linked heterodimeric protein associated with the clearance of cellular debris and apoptosis.[1] In humans, clusterin is encoded by the CLU gene.This protein has several synonyms: dimeric acidic glycoprotein(DAG protein), testosterone repressed prostate message-2(TRPM-2), sulfated glycoprotein-2(SGP-2) and complement lysis inhibitor(CLI). Clusterin was mapped to mouse chromosome 14. Clusterin is a ubiquitously expressed molecule thought to influence a variety of processes including cell death. In the brain, it accumulates in dying neurons following seizures and hypoxic-ischemic(H-I) injury. clusterin may be a new therapeutic target to modulate noncaspase- dependent neuronal death following acute brain injury.

 NCBI Summary for CLU    The protein encoded by this gene is a secreted chaperone that can under some stress conditions also be found in the cell cytosol. It has been suggested to be involved in several basic biological events such as cell death, tumor progression, and neurodegenerative disorders. Alternate splicing results in both coding and non-coding variants.[provided by RefSeq, May 2011]

 UniProt Comments for CLU    CLU: Isoform 1 functions as extracellular chaperone that prevents aggregation of nonnative proteins. Prevents stress- induced aggregation of blood plasma proteins. Inhibits formation of amyloid fibrils by APP, APOC2, B2M, CALCA, CSN3, SNCA and aggregation-prone LYZ variants (in vitro). Does not require ATP. Maintains partially unfolded proteins in a state appropriate for subsequent refolding by other chaperones, such as HSPA8/HSC70. Does not refold proteins by itself. Binding to cell surface receptors triggers internalization of the chaperone-client complex and subsequent lysosomal or proteasomal degradation. Secreted isoform 1 protects cells against apoptosis and against cytolysis by complement. Intracellular isoforms interact with ubiquitin and SCF (SKP1-CUL1-F-box protein) E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase complexes and promote the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins. Promotes proteasomal degradation of COMMD1 and IKBKB. Modulates NF-kappa-B transcriptional activity. Nuclear isoforms promote apoptosis. Mitochondrial isoforms suppress BAX-dependent release of cytochrome c into the cytoplasm and inhibit apoptosis. Plays a role in the regulation of cell proliferation. Belongs to the clusterin family. 5 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
