|0.5 mg/mL of mouse anti-CST4 monoclonal antibody, Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in CBS before coating.|
|0.5 mg/mL mouse anti-CST4 monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP). Dilute to working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.|
|Each vial contains 37 ng of recombinant CST4. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. After reconstitution, store at -20℃ to -70℃ in a manual defrost freezer. A seven-point standard curve usi ng 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 150 pg/mL is recommended.|
|The minimum detectable dose of Human Cystatin S / CST4 was determined to be approximately 2.4 pg/ml. This is defined as at least three times standard deviations above the mean optical density of 10 replicates of the zero standard.|
|The Human Cystatin S / CST4 ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of Human Cystatin S / CST4.|
This ELISA Pair Set contains the basic components required for the development of sandwich ELISAs.
The Sino Biological ELISA Pair Set is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). It utilizes a monoclonal antibody specific for Cystatin S / CST4 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any Cystatin S / CST4 present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated mouse anti-Cystatin S / CST4 monoclonal antibody is then added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody "sandwich". The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is loaded, which produces color in proportion to the amount of Cystatin S / CST4 present in the sample. To end the enzyme reaction, the stop solution is added and absorbances of the microwell are read at 450 nm.
|Capture Antibody: Aliquot and store at -20℃ to -70℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.|
Detection Antibody: Protect it from prolonged exposure to light. Aliquot and store at -20℃ to -70℃ and for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Standard: Store lyophilized Standard at -20℃ to -70℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Aliquot and store the reconstituted Standard at -20℃ to -70℃ for up to 1 month. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Cystatin-S, also known as Cystatin-4, Salivary acidic protein 1, Cystatin-SA-III and CST4, is a secreted protein which belongs to the cystatin family. Cystatin-4 / CST4 is expressed in submandibular and sublingual saliva but not in parotid saliva (at protein level). It is also expressed in saliva, tears, urine and seminal fluid. The cystatin superfamily encompasses proteins that contain multiple cystatin-like sequences. Some of the members are active cysteine protease inhibitors, while others have lost or perhaps never acquired this inhibitory activity. There are three inhibitory families in the superfamily, including the type 1 cystatins (stefins), type 2 cystatins and the kininogens. The type 2 cystatin proteins are a class of cysteine proteinase inhibitors found in a variety of human fluids and secretions. Cystatin-4 / CST4 strongly inhibits papain and ficin, partially inhibits stem bromelain and bovine cathepsin C, but does not inhibit porcine cathepsin B or clostripain. Papain is inhibited non-competitively. Cystatin-4 / CST4 is an S-type cystatin, based on its high level of expression in saliva, tears and seminal plasma. The specific role in these fluids is unclear but antibacterial and antiviral activity is present, consistent with a protective function.
