 Searchable Terms for FABP4 purchase    MBS925921 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate Quantitative Sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte (FABP4) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range of 31.25 pg/ml -2000 pg/ml in biological research samples containing FABP4, with an estimated sensitivity of 7.81 pg/ml. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS925921 kit is based on FABP4 antibody-FABP4 antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect FABP4 antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, FABP4. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Related Product Information for FABP4 elisa kit

   Principle of the Assay: This assay employs the quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique. Antibody specific for FABP4 has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any FABP4 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for FABP4 is added to the wells. After washing, avidin 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 FABP4 bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.

 UniProt Comments for FABP4    FABP4: a lipid transport protein that is the predominant fatty acid binding protein found in adipocytes. Also expressed in macrophages. Binds both long chain fatty acids and retinoic acid. Delivers long-chain fatty acids and retinoic acid to their cognate receptors in the nucleus. Homodimer. Forms a beta-barrel structure that accommodates hydrophobic ligands in its interior. Interacts with PPARG. Monomer. FABP4 knockout mice fed a high-fat and high-calorie diet become obese but develop neither insulin resistance nor diabetes, suggesting that this protein might be a link between obesity and insulin resistance and diabetes. Mice deficient in both FABP4 and ApoE show protection against atherosclerosis when compared with mice deficient only in ApoE. Mice carrying a FABP4 genetic variant exhibit both reduced FABP4 expression and a reduced potential for developing type 2 diabetes and coronary heart disease. A related study in humans indicated a similar pattern, suggesting that FABP4 may be a potential therapeutic target in the treatment of these disorders. Belongs to the calycin superfamily,fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
