 Searchable Terms for PIWIL2 purchase    MBS280214 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Piwi-like protein 2 (PIWIL2) 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 PIWIL2. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS280214 kit is based on PIWIL2 antibody-PIWIL2 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect PIWIL2 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, PIWIL2. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Serum, Plasma, Other biological fluids. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for PIWIL2 elisa kit

   Principle of the Assay: This assay employs a two-site sandwich ELISA to quantitate PIWIL2 in samples. An antibody specific for PIWIL2 has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and anyPIWIL2 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for PIWIL2 is added to the wells. After washing, Streptavidin 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 PIWIL2 bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

 NCBI Summary for PIWIL2    PIWIL2 belongs to the Argonaute family of proteins, which function in development and maintenance of germline stem cells (Sasaki et al., 2003 [PubMed 12906857]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

 UniProt Comments for PIWIL2    PIWIL2: Plays a central role during spermatogenesis by repressing transposable elements and prevent their mobilization, which is essential for the germline integrity. Plays an essential role in meiotic differentiation of spermatocytes, germ cell differentiation and in self-renewal of spermatogonial stem cells. Its presence in oocytes suggests that it may participate in similar functions during oogenesis in females. Acts via the piRNA metabolic process, which mediates the repression of transposable elements during meiosis by forming complexes composed of piRNAs and Piwi proteins and govern the methylation and subsequent repression of transposons. Directly binds piRNAs, a class of 24 to 30 nucleotide RNAs that are generated by a Dicer-independent mechanism and are primarily derived from transposons and other repeated sequence elements. Associates with primary piRNAs in the cytoplasm and is required for PIWIL4/MIWI2 nuclear localization and association with secondary piRNAs antisense. The piRNA process acts upstream of known mediators of DNA methylation. Participates in a piRNA amplification loop. Besides their function in transposable elements repression, piRNAs are probably involved in other processes during meiosis such as translation regulation. Indirectly modulate expression of genes such as PDGFRB, SLC2A1, ITGA6, GJA7, THY1, CD9 and STRA8. Inhibits tumor cell growth when repressed. When overexpressed, acts as an oncogene by inhibition of apoptosis and promotion of proliferation in tumors. Interacts with DDX4, MAEL, EIF3A, EIF4E, EIF4G, PRMT5 and WDR77. Associates with EIF4E- and EIF4G-containing m7G cap-binding complexes. Interacts (when methylated on arginine residues) with TDRD1. Expressed in adult testis and in most tumors. Belongs to the argonaute family. Piwi subfamily. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
