 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 MGP 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 MGP purchase    MBS284250 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Matrix Gla (MGP) 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 MGP. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS284250 kit is based on MGP antibody-MGP antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect MGP antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, MGP. 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(%).

 NCBI Summary for MGP    The protein encoded by this gene is secreted and likely acts as an inhibitor of bone formation. The encoded protein is found in the organic matrix of bone and cartilage. Defects in this gene are a cause of Keutel syndrome (KS). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for MGP    MGP: Associates with the organic matrix of bone and cartilage. Thought to act as an inhibitor of bone formation. Defects in MGP are the cause of Keutel syndrome (KS). KS is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by abnormal cartilage calcification, peripheral pulmonary stenosis neural hearing loss and midfacial hypoplasia. Belongs to the osteocalcin/matrix Gla protein family.

Protein type: Secreted; Secreted, signal peptide; Extracellular matrix

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 12p12.3

Cellular Component: extracellular matrix; proteinaceous extracellular matrix

Molecular Function: calcium ion binding; extracellular matrix structural constituent; protein binding; structural constituent of bone

Biological Process: cartilage condensation; cell differentiation; ossification; regulation of bone mineralization

Disease: Keutel Syndrome
