 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 DEFa5 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 DEFa5 purchase    MBS455303 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Defensin Alpha 5, Paneth Cell Specific (DEFa5) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range of 3.125-200pg/mL in biological research samples containing DEFa5, with an estimated sensitivity of 1.31pg/mL. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS455303 kit is based on DEFa5 antibody-DEFa5 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect DEFa5 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, DEFa5. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, cell lysates, cell culture supernates and other biological fluids. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for DEFa5 elisa kit

   Intended Uses: This kit is a sandwich enzyme immunoassay for in vitro quantitative measurement of DEFa5 in human serum, plasma, tissue homogenates, cell lysates, cell culture supernates and other biological fluids.

Principle of the Assay: The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to DEFa5. Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody preparation specific to DEFa5. Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain DEFa5, biotin-conjugated antibody and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm +/- 10nm. The concentration of DEFa5 in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.

 NCBI Summary for DEFa5    Defensins are a family of antimicrobial and cytotoxic peptides thought to be involved in host defense. They are abundant in the granules of neutrophils and also found in the epithelia of mucosal surfaces such as those of the intestine, respiratory tract, urinary tract, and vagina. Members of the defensin family are highly similar in protein sequence and distinguished by a conserved cysteine motif. Several of the alpha defensin genes appear to be clustered on chromosome 8. The protein encoded by this gene, defensin, alpha 5, is highly expressed in the secretory granules of Paneth cells of the ileum. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for DEFa5    Has antimicrobial activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Defensins are thought to kill microbes by permeabilizing their plasma membrane. All DEFA5 peptides exert antimicrobial activities, but their potency is affected by peptide processing.

 Research Articles on DEFa5    1. a moderately active linear peptide derived from the alpha-defensin HD5 can be engineered to enhance antimicrobial activity almost comparable to the native peptide.
