 Samples    Serum, plasma, Cell Culture Supernatants, body fluid and tissue homogenate
 Assay Type    Sandwich
 Detection Range    0.5-10ng/mL
 Sensitivity    0.1ng/mL
 Intended Uses    This B7H4 ELISA kit is a 1.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed for the quantitative determination of Human B7H4. This ELISA kit for research use only, not for therapeutic or diagnostic applications!
Section Bar
 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 B7 H4 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 for B7 H4 purchase    MBS751659 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Costimulatory molecules B7H4  (B7 H4) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range of 0.5-10ng/mL in biological research samples containing B7 H4, with an estimated sensitivity of 0.1ng/mL. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS751659 kit is based on B7 H4 antibody-B7 H4 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect B7 H4 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, B7 H4. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Serum, plasma, Cell Culture Supernatants, body fluid and tissue homogenate. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for B7 H4 elisa kit

   Priciple of the assay: B7H4 ELISA kit applies the competitive enzyme immunoassay technique utilizing a monoclonal anti-B7H4 antibody and an B7H4-HRP conjugate. The assay sample and buffer are incubated together with B7H4-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 B7H4 concentration since B7H4 from samples and B7H4-HRP conjugate compete for the anti-B7H4 antibody binding site. Since the number of sites is limited, as more sites are occupied by B7H4 from the sample, fewer sites are left to bind B7H4-HRP conjugate. A standard curve is plotted relating the intensity of the color (O.D.) to the concentration of standards. The B7H4 concentration in each sample is interpolated from this standard curve.

 NCBI Summary for B7 H4    This gene encodes a protein belonging to the B7 costimulatory protein family. Proteins in this family are present on the surface of antigen-presenting cells and interact with ligand bound to receptors on the surface of T cells. Studies have shown that high levels of the encoded protein has been correlated with tumor progression. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 20. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for B7 H4    VTCN1: Negatively regulates T-cell-mediated immune response by inhibiting T-cell activation, proliferation, cytokine production and development of cytotoxicity. When expressed on the cell surface of tumor macrophages, plays an important role, together with regulatory T-cells (Treg), in the suppression of tumor- associated antigen-specific T-cell immunity. Involved in promoting epithelial cell transformation. Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. BTN/MOG family. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

Protein type: Membrane protein, integral

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 1p13.1

Cellular Component: integral to membrane; external side of plasma membrane
