Typical Testing Data/Standard Curve
Intended Uses: This ENK ELISA kit is a 1.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed for the quantitative determination of Rat ENK. This ELISA kit for research use only, not for therapeutic or diagnostic applications!
Principle of the Assay: ENK ELISA kit applies the competitive enzyme immunoassay technique utilizing a monoclonal anti-ENK antibody and an ENK-HRP conjugate. The assay sample and buffer are incubated together with ENK-HRP conjugate in pre-coated plate for one hour. After the incubation period, the wells are decanted and washed five times. The wells are then incubated with a substrate for HRP enzyme. The product of the enzyme-substrate reaction forms a blue colored complex. Finally, a stop solution is added to stop the reaction, which will then turn the solution yellow. The intensity of color is measured spectrophotometrically at 450nm in a microplate reader. The intensity of the color is inversely proportional to the ENK concentration since ENK from samples and ENK-HRP conjugate compete for the anti-ENK antibody binding site. Since the number of sites is limited, as more sites are occupied by ENK from the sample, fewer sites are left to bind ENK-HRP conjugate. A standard curve is plotted relating the intensity of the color (O.D.) to the concentration of standards. The ENK concentration in each sample is interpolated from this standard curve.
Samples: Serum, plasma, Cell Culture Supernatants, body fluid and tissue homogenate
Assay Type: Competitive
Detection Range: 250-5000pg/mL
Sensitivity: 1.0pg/ml. Rat Enkephalin ELISA Kit or ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbant assays) Kits in general, are a valuable research tool for a myriad of applications in a range of scientific settings. Currently, three major types of ELISA formats are used by researchers: sandwich, competitive and indirect. Most commercially available ELISA Kits are sandwich or competitive. Commercially available ELISA Kits contain wells that have been pre-coated with the capture antibody. Please refer to the product manual for the ELISA format of your specific kit. ENK also interacts with the following gene(s): Fhl2, Fos, Jun, Oprd1, Oprk1, Oprm1, Pdyn, Pomc. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene.
