Mouse CD14 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse CD14 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse CD14 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
CD14, Cluster of differentiation 14, ingle-copy gene encoding 2 protein forms: a 50- to 55-kD glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored membrane protein(mCD14) and a monocyte or liver-derived soluble serum protein(sCD14) that lacks the anchor. By in situ hybridization and study of somatic cell hybrid DNA that the gene is located at bands 5q23-q31. CD14 acts as a co-receptor(along with the Toll-like receptor TLR 4 and MD-2) for the detection of bacterial lipopolysaccharide(LPS). CD14 can bind LPS only in the presence of lipopolysaccharide-binding protein(LBP). Although LPS is considered its main ligand, CD14 also recognizes other pathogen-associated molecular patterns.
