Human Complement Factor H / CFH ELISA Pair Set

DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
Human CFH Materials provided
Capture Ab:0.1 mg/mL of mouse anti-CFH monoclonal antibody (in PBS, pH 7.4). Dilute to a working concentration of 2 μg/mL in CBS before coating.
Detection Ab:0.5 mg/mL mouse anti-CFH monoclonal antibody conjugated to horseradish-peroxidase (HRP) (in PBS, 50 % glycerol, pH 7.4). Dilute to working concentration of 0.5 μg/mL in detection antibody dilution buffer before use.
Standard:Each vial contains 25 ng of recombinant CFH. 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 2 ng/mL is recommended.
Human CFH Specificity
Human CFH Sensitivity
The minimum detectable dose of Human Complement Factor H / CFH 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.
Human CFH Principle of the product
The Human Complement Factor H / CFH ELISA Pair Set is for the quantitative determination of Human Complement Factor H / CFH.
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 Complement Factor H / CFH coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells, and any Complement Factor H / CFH present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and a horseradish peroxidase conjugated mouse anti-Complement Factor H / CFH 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 Complement Factor H / CFH present in the sample. To end the enzyme reaction, the stop solution is added and absorbances of the microwell are read at 450 nm.
Human CFH Storage
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: Protect it from prolonged exposure to light. Aliquot and store at -20℃ to -80℃ and for up to 6 months from date of receipt. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
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.
Complement Factor H Background

Complement factor H, also known as H factor 1, and CFH, is a sialic acid containing glycoprotein that plays an integral role in the regulation of the complement-mediated immune system that is involved in microbial defense, immune complex processing, and programmed cell death. Factor H protects host cells from injury resulting from unrestrained complement activation. CFH regulates complement activation on self cells by possessing both cofactor activity for the Factor I mediated C3b cleavage, and decay accelerating activity against the alternative pathway C3 convertase, C3bBb. CFH protects self cells from complement activation but not bacteria/viruses. Due to the central role that CFH plays in the regulation of complement, there are many clinical implications arrising from aberrant CFH activity. Mutations in the Factor H gene are associated with severe and diverse diseases including the rare renal disorders hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS) and membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis (MPGN) also termed dense deposit disease (DDD), membranoproliferative glomuleronephritis type II or dense deposit disease, as well as the more frequent retinal disease age related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition to its complement regulatory activities, factor H has multiple physiological activities and 1) acts as an extracellular matrix component, 2) binds to cellular receptors of the integrin type, and 3) interacts with a wide selection of ligands, such as the C-reactive protein, thrombospondin, bone sialoprotein, osteopontin, and heparin.
