Intended Use:
BNP-26 EIA Kit (Porcine or Ovine)
is designed to use for measuring quantitatively the levels of Brain Natriuretic Peptide-26 (BNP-26)(Ovine and Porice) in CSF, plasma, tissue homogenate, culture media, any biological fluid, serum or urine.

Assay Principle:
1. Pre-coated wells with secondary antibody and also the non-specific binding sites have been blocked.
2. Secondary antibody is able to bind with the Fc fragment of the primary antibody, the Fab segment is competitively bound by both biotinylated peptides and the peptide standard or the targeted peptide in samples.
3. Biotinylated peptide can then interact with the SA-HRP, which then catalyzes the TMB substrate solution and hydrogen peroxide to form a blue coloured solution.
4. Reaction is stopped by adding hydrogen chloride, which forms a yellow coloured solution.
5. Intensity of the yellow solution is inversely proportional to the amount of the peptide in standard solutions or samples.
6. Unknown concentration of BNP-26 in samples can then be determined using this BNP-26 EIA assay by extrapolation from a standard curve.

Cross Reactivity:
BNP-26 (Porcine or Ovine) 100%.
BNP-32 (Porcine)  100%.
BNP-32 (Rat)  0%.
BNP-32 (Human)  0%.
Alpha ANP (1-28)  0%.
BNP-45 (Rat)  0

Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP-26) a 26 a.a. polypeptide has been found to be secreted by the ventricles of heart when there is excessive stretching of myocytes. It is release alongside an NT-proBNP (76 amino acids amino terminal fragment). Was first discovered in extracts of porcine brain, whereas within humans it is found to be made in the cardiac ventricles. Elevated levels of BNP 26 and/or NT-proBNP within the blood are useful markers in the diagnosis of heart failure and acute congestive heart failure (CHF).
