Intended Use:
Porcine BNP-32 EIA kit can be used for in vitro quantitative determination of brain natriuretic peptide-32 levels in plasma, serum, culture media, tissue homogenate, CSF, urine and any biological fluid.

Assay Principle:
1. The microwell plate has been pre-coated 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-32 in samples can then be determined using this porcine BNP-32 EIA assay by extrapolation from a standard curve.

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

Brain natriuretic peptide was first discovered in extracts of porcine brain, whereas within humans it is found to be made in the cardiac ventricles. It is a 32 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). Elevated levels of BNP 32 and/or NT-proBNP within the blood are useful markers in the diagnosis of heart failure and acute congestive heart failure (CHF).
