Mouse MIP-2 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse MIP-2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse MIP-2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
MIP is a member of the aquaporin family of membrane-bound water channels. MIP family proteins are thought to contain 6 TM domains. Sequence analysis suggests that the proteins may have arisen through tandem, intragenic duplication from an ancestral protein that contained 3 TM domains. Major intrinsic protein(MIP, also called MP26) is the predominant fiber cell membrane protein of the ocular lens. The major intrinsic protein(MIP) of the vertebrate eye lens is the first identified member of a sequence-related family of cell-membrane proteins that appears to have evolved by gene duplication. Several members of the MIP family transport water(aquaporins), glycerol and other small molecules in microbial, plant and animal cells. The standard used in this kit is recombinant mouse MIP-2(A28-N100), consisting of 73 amino acids with the molecular mass of 8KDa.
