This assay recognizes recombinant and natural human prorenin. The factors listed below were prepared at 10 ng/ml in depleted plasma and assayed for cross-reactivity. No significant cross-reactivity was observed. Recombinant human renin Recombinant mouse prorenin
Complete Kit
Plasma samples
The minimum detectable dose (MDD) was determined by adding two standard deviations to the mean optical density value of twenty zero standard replicates (range OD450: 0.066-0.074) and calculating the corresponding concentration. The MDD was 0.013 ng/ml.
Intra-assay Precision
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-assay Precision
Three samples of known concentration were tested in ten independent assays to assess inter-assay precision.
Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C. Shelf Life: 12 months from manufacture, see label for expiration date
Product Note
Select online data sheet information is drawn from bioinformatics databases, occasionally resulting in ambiguous or non-relevant product information. It is the responsibility of the customer to review, verify, and evaluate the information to make sure it matches their requirements before purchasing the kit. 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 REN 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.

MBS135503 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip-or-full plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Multiple Prorenin, 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 REN. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS135503 kit is based on REN antibody-REN antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect REN antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, REN. 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(%).

Intended Uses: Human prorenin assay is intended for the quantitative determination of prorenin in plasma samples. Active renin will not be detected by this assay. Prorenin is measured directly by ELISA without pretreatment of samples or conversion to renin [1]. For non-plasma samples such as cell culture media, tissue extracts, or urine samples, use the Human Prorenin ELISA Kit for Non-Plasma Samples (cat # HPRENKT-NP). For research use only.

Principle of the Assay: Human prorenin will bind to the capture antibody coated on the microtiter plate. After appropriate washing steps, anti-human prorenin primary antibody binds to the captured protein. Only prorenin and not active renin will be detected by the primary antibody. Excess antibody is washed away and bound primary antibody is then reacted with the secondary antibody conjugated to horseradish peroxidase. TMB substrate is used for color development at 450nm. A standard calibration curve is prepared along with the samples to be measured using dilutions of prorenin. The amount of color development is directly proportional to the concentration of prorenin in the sample.

Background: Prorenin is a glycosylated aspartic protease that consists of 2 homologous lobes and is the precursor of renin. Renin activates the renin-angiotensin system by cleaving angiotensinogen, produced by the liver, to yield angiotensin I, which is further converted into angiotensin II by ACE, the angiotensin-converting enzyme primarily within the capillaries of the lungs. It has been reported that the levels of circulating prorenin (but not renin) are increased in diabetic subjects [2].

NCBI Summary for REN
Renin catalyzes the first step in the activation pathway of angiotensinogen--a cascade that can result in aldosterone release,vasoconstriction, and increase in blood pressure. Renin, an aspartyl protease, cleaves angiotensinogen to form angiotensin I, which is converted to angiotensin II by angiotensin I converting enzyme, an important regulator of blood pressure and electrolyte balance. Transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms and that arise from alternative splicing and the use of alternative promoters have been described, but their full-length nature has not been determined. Mutations in this gene have been shown to cause familial hyperproreninemia. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for REN
REN: Renin is a highly specific endopeptidase, whose only known function is to generate angiotensin I from angiotensinogen in the plasma, initiating a cascade of reactions that produce an elevation of blood pressure and increased sodium retention by the kidney. Interacts with ATP6AP2. Interaction with ATP6AP2 results in a 5-fold increased efficiency in angiotensinogen processing. Belongs to the peptidase A1 family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
