Rat Growth Differentiation Factor 8 (Myostatin) ELISA KitIRTMSTNKT
This Rat Growth Differentiation Factor 8 (Myostatin) ELISA Kit from Innovative Research is intended for quantitative detection of rat Myostatin/GDF8 in cell culture supernates, tissue, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA). Strip well format. Reagents for up to 96 tests.
This rat Myostatin/GDF8 ELISA Kit was based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from rat specific for Myostatin/GDF8 has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards(Expression system for standard: NSO, Immunogen sequence: D268-S376) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for Myostatin/GDF8 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substmousee TMB was used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the human Fibronectin amount of sample captured in plate.

Additional Information: The capture antibody is A monoclonal antibody from mouse, the detection antibody is a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat. Expression system for standard: Myostatin (also known as growth differentiation factor 8, abbreviated GDF-8) is a myokine, a protein produced and released by myocytes that acts on muscle cells' autocrine function to inhibit myogenesis: muscle cell growth and differentiation. In humans it is encoded by the MSTN gene. It is mapped to 9q22. Myostatin is a secreted growth differentiation factor that is a member of the TGF beta protein family. This gene encodes a secreted ligand of the TGF-beta (transforming growth factor-beta) superfamily of proteins. Ligands of this family bind various TGF-beta receptors leading to recruitment and activation of SMAD family transcription factors that regulate gene expression. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate each subunit of the disulfide-linked homodimer. This protein negatively regulates skeletal muscle cell proliferation and differentiation. Mutations in this gene are associated with increased skeletal muscle mass in humans and other mammals.; Immunogen sequence: 399
