Human FTL / ferritin, light polypeptide ELISA Kit

DatasheetComponentsSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated Products
Principle Of The Test
Solid Phase Sandwich ELISA
Intended Use
For the quantitative determination of Human FTL / ferritin, light polypeptide concentration in serum.
The use of this kit for other sample types need be validated by the end user due to the complexity of natural targets and unpredictable interference.
Assay Range
62.5-4000 pg/mL
The minimum detectable dose of Human FTL / ferritin, light polypeptide is typically less than 7.95 pg/mL. The MDD was determined by adding three standard deviations to the mean optical density value of twenty zero standard replicates and calculating the corresponding concentration.
Materials Provided
1. 96 well microplate coated with Capture Antibody
2. Detection Antibody conjugated to HRP
3. Standards
4. Wash Buffer Concentrate
5. Dilution Buffer Concentrate
6. Color Reagent A
7. Color Reagent B
8. Stop Solution
Unopened Kit: Store at 2 - 8℃
Opened/Reconstituted Reagents: Please refer to CoA
FTL/ferritin L chain Background

Ferritin, light polypeptide (FTL) is the light subunit of the ferritin protein. Ferritin is the major intracellular iron storage protein in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It is composed of 24 subunits of the heavy and light ferritin chains. Storage of iron in the tissues occurs in the form of ferritin and hemosiderin. The latter originates from ferritin that has undergone intracellular digestion of its protein shell, leaving the iron core. Ferritin and hemosiderin are components of a continuum. Ferritin has been identified in all types of living organisms: animals, plants, molds, and bacteria. Whithin the protein shell of ferritin, iron is first oxidized to the ferric state for storage as ferric oxyhdroxide. Thus, ferritin removes excess iron from the cell sap where it could otherwise participate in peroxidation mechanisms.
