|0.5 mg/mL of mouse anti-RBP4 monoclonal antibody. Dilute to a working concentration of 2.0 μg/mL in CBS before coating.|
|1.0 mg/mL mouse anti-RBP4 monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP). Dilute to a working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.|
|Each vial contains 4.2 μg of recombinant RBP4. 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 usi ng 2-fold serial dilutions in sample dilution buffer, and a high standard of 600 pg/mL is recommended.|
|The minimum detectable dose of human RBP4 / PRBP was determined to be approximately 9.375 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 RBP4 / PRBP ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of human RBP4 / PRBP.
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 RBP4 /PRBP coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells,and any RBP4 / PRBP present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells arewashed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated mouse anti-RBP4 monoclonalantibody is then added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody "sandwich". Thewells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is loaded, which producescolor in proportion to the amount of RBP4 / PRBP present in the sample. To endthe enzyme reaction, the stop solution is added and absorbances of themicrowell are read at 450 nm.

Retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) is the specific carrier for retinol (also known as vitamin A), and is responsible for the conversion of unstable and insoluble retinol in aqueous solution into stable and soluble complex in plasma through their tight interaction. As a member of the lipocalin superfamily, RBP4 containing a β-barrel structure with a well-defined cavity is secreted from the liver, and in turn delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP4-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin (TTR), and this binding is crucial for preventing RBP4 excretion through the kidney glomeruli. RBP4 expressed from an ectopic source efficiently delivers retinol to the eyes, and its deficiency affects night vision largely. Recently, RBP4 as an adipokine, is found to be expressed in adipose tissue and correlated with obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and type 2 diabetes (T2DM).
