|0.5 mg/mL of mouse anti-Fetuin-A monoclonal antibody. Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in CBS before coating.|
|Each vial contains 120 μg biotinylated rabbit anti-Fetuin-A polyclonal antibody. Reconstitute with sterile 1 mL distilled water .Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.|
|Each vial contains 52 ng of recombinant Fetuin-A. Reconstitute with 1 mL detection antibody dilution buffer. A seven-point standard curve usi ng 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 2000 pg/mL is recommended.|
|50 μL of streptavidin conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase. 1:2000 Dilution in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.|
|The minimum detectable dose of human Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) was determined to be approximately 31.25 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 Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of human Fetuin-A.
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 Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a biotinylated rabbit anti-Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) polyclonal antibody is then added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody "sandwich". To produces color in proportion to the amount of Fetuin-A (AHSG / FETUA) present in the sample strepavidin-HRP and TMB substrate solution are loaded. The absorbances of the microwell are read at 450 nm.

Fetuin-A, also known as Alpha-2-HS-Glycoprotein (AHSG), belongs to the Fetuin family, is a plasma binding protein, and is more abundant in fetal than adult blood. It is involved in several functions, such as endocytosis, brain development and the formation of bone tissue. Fetuins are carrier proteins like albumin. Fetuin-A forms soluble complexes with calcium and phosphate and thus is a carrier of otherwise insoluble calcium phosphate. Thus Fetuin-A is a potent inhibitor of pathological calcification. The circulating levels of fetuin-A, a well-described inhibitor of calcification, regulate the cell-dependent process of osteogenesis. The low circulating fetuin-A levels are associated with a greater prevalence and/or severity of Vascular calcification (VC) and increased risk for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. However, high circulating fetuin-A levels appear to induce insulin resistance and, in non-dialyzed subjects with diabetic nephropathy, are directly related to VC burden. The emerging role of fetuin-A deficiency as a risk factor in dialysis patients was documented in cross-sectional studies demonstrating a significant correlation with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality. Additionally, Human fetuin-A is a negative acute phase protein involved in inflammatory diseases, thus being a potential physiological regulator of meprin activity. Fetuin-A is a broad-range protease inhibitor. Fetuin-A and cystatin C as endogenous proteolytic regulators of meprin activity broadens our understanding of the proteolytic network in plasma.
