 Specificity    This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for detection of CX43. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between CX43 and analogues was observed. NOTE: Limited by current skills and knowledge, it is impossible for us to complete the cross-reactivity detection between CX43 and all the analogues, therefore, cross reaction may still exist in some cases.

 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 CX43 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 CX43 purchase    MBS729401 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Connexin 43 (CX43) 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 CX43, with an estimated sensitivity of 1.0 pg/mL. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS729401 kit is based on CX43 antibody-CX43 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect CX43 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, CX43. 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(%). Intended use of this ELISA Kit is quantitative detection of murine connexin 43.

Kitís target analyte, connexin 43, is one of major integral membrane proteins that form gap junction channels to provide inter-cellular communication such as exchange of small molecules and ions between adjacent cells. Itís expressed in variable cell types and plays important role in development, differentiation, and metabolic homeostasis.

Connexin 43 is listed in NCBI and UniProt data bases as gap junction alpha-1 protein, short fin protein; gap junction protein, and Cx43.

Murine connexin 43 test system is designed as sandwich-type ELISA and concentration of connexin 43 is measured using pair of antibodies specific to target protein.

Kit is applicable for testing connexin 43 in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants, bodily fluids, and tissue homogenates.

Product contains microwell plate pre-coated with monoclonal capture antibodies against connexin 43 and all reagents required for its quantification, including sample and reagent diluents, and wash solution.

Assay kit provides colorimetric detection of connexin 43 using polyclonal detector antibodies against connexin 43 conjugated to HRP, and TMB as its substrate solution.

Minimal detectable concentration of ELISA kit is 1pg/mL; kits are supplied with six levels of liquid calibrators between 0 and 2500pg/mL.

Intra- and inter-lot assay CV values, reported as kitís precision characteristics, are not greater than 9% and 10%, respectively.

Assay doesnít show significant cross-reactivity with analogous molecules.

ELISA kit and its reagents and components require refrigeration and must be stored at 2-8įC until indicated expiration date.

   Intended Uses: This CX43 ELISA kit is a 1.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed for the quantitative determination of Mouse CX43. This ELISA kit for research use only, not for therapeutic or diagnostic applications!

Principle of the Assay: CX43 ELISA kit applies the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. The microtiter plate has been pre-coated with a monoclonal antibody specific for CX43. Standards or samples are then added to the microtiter plate wells and CX43 if present, will bind to the antibody pre-coated wells. In order to quantitatively determine the amount of CX43 present in the sample, a standardized preparation of horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated polyclonal antibody, specific for CX43 are added to each well to "sandwich" the CX43 immobilized on the plate. The microtiter plate undergoes incubation, and then the wells are thoroughly washed to remove all unbound components. Next, substrate solutions are added to each well. The enzyme (HRP) and substrate are allowed to react over a short incubation period. Only those wells that contain CX43 and enzyme-conjugated antibody will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by addition of a sulphuric acid solution and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm. A standard curve is plotted relating the intensity of the color (O.D.) to the concentration of standards. The CX43 concentration in each sample is interpolated from this standard curve.

 UniProt Comments for CX43    Function: One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell. Ref.1Plays a role in regulation of fin bone size and growth. Ref.1

Subunit structure: A connexon is composed of a hexamer of connexins.

Subcellular location: Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Cell junction › gap junction.

Tissue specificity: Expressed in adult ovary, heart, lens and liver. In growing caudal fins, expressed in cells flanking the germinal region of newly growing segments and in osteoblasts at segment boundaries. Ref.1 Ref.2 Ref.5

Developmental stage: Expressed both maternally and zygotically. Zygotic expression is initiated before gastrulation and persists through to day 5 of development. Levels increase in late somitogenesis, and late embryonic and early larval stages. Embryonic expression is observed in many developing tissues and organs, including the notochord and brain, and heart and vasculature. Detected throughout the lens at 24 hours post-fertilization (hpf), but by 3-4 days development, restricted to the lateral epithelium and differentiating cells in the equatorial region. Ref.2 Ref.5

Miscellaneous: Morpholino knockdown of the protein results in heart folding defects, reduced hematopoiesis and small eyes.

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the connexin family. Alpha-type (group II) subfamily.
