|1 mg/mL of rabbit anti-Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC monoclonal antibody (in PBS, pH 7.4). Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in PBS before coating.|
|0.2 mg/mL of rabbit anti-Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) (in PBS, 50 % HRP-Protector, pH 7.4, store at 4℃). Dilute to working concentration of 0.35 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.|
|Each vial contains 315 ng of recombinant Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. After reconstitution, store at -20℃ to -80℃ in a manual defrost freezer. A seven-point standard curve using 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 7000 pg/mL is recommended.|
|The minimum detectable dose of Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC was determined to be approximately 109.375 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 DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC.
The Sino Biological ELISA Pair Set is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay). It utilizes a monoclonal antibody specific for Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated rabbit anti-Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC 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 Human DOPA Decarboxylase / DDC 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 -80℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Detection Antibody: Store at 4℃ and protect it from prolonged exposure to light for up to 6 months from date of receipt. DO NOT FREEZE!
Standard: Store lyophilized standard at -20℃ to -80℃ for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Aliquot and store the reconstituted Standard at -80℃ for up to 1 month. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Dopa Decarboxylase (DDC), also known as AADC and Aromatic-L-amino acid decarboxylase, is a 54 kDa member of the group II decarboxylase family of proteins.It is a vitamin B6-dependent homodimeric enzyme that catalyzes the decarboxylation of both L-3,4-dihydroxyphenylalanine (L-DOPA) and L-5-hydroxytryptophan to dopamine and serotonin, respectively, which are major mammalian neurotransmitters and hormones belonging to catecholamines and indoleamines. Since L-DOPA is regularly used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson's disease, the catalytic pathway is of particular research interest. Defects of DDC are associated with severe developmental delay, oculogyric crises (OGC), as well as autosomal recessive disorder AADC deficiency, an early onset inborn error in neurotransmitter metabolism which can lead to catecholamine and serotonin deficiency.
