Intended Use:
Apelin 12 chemiluminescent EIA (human, bovine, rat, mouse) is a method for quantitatively measuring amounts of human, rat, mouse or bovine apelin-12 in plasma, serum, culture media, urine, CSF and tissue homogenate and any biological fluid samples

Assay Principle:
1. 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 substrate solution.
4. Luminescence intensity is directly proportional to the amount of biotinylated peptide-SA-HRP complex but inversely proportional to the amount of the peptide in standard solutions or samples.
5. Unknown concentration in samples can then be determined by extrapolation from a standard curve.

Cross Reactivity:
Apelin-12 (Human) 100%.
Apelin-36 (Human, Rat) 100%.
Apelin-13 (Human, Rat) 100%.
Alpha-ANP  0%.
ADM-52 (Human)  0%.
ANP (25-56) (N-ANP)  0%.
CNP-22 0%.
ET-1  (Human) 0%.
BNP-32 (Human)  0%.
Bradykinin  0%.
Ghrelin  (Human) 0%.

Apelin 12 functions as a mediator of the cardiovascular control, which includes blood flow and blood pressure and is also an endogenous ligand for the G-protein-coupled APJ receptor. It is also a potent stimulators of cardiac contractility, playing a vital part in cardiac tissue remodelling, it is widely expressed in various organs such as the heart, gastrointestinal tract, kidney, lung, adipose tissue, endothelium, brain, adrenal glands and human plasma. Its levels are increased in left ventricles of patients with chronic heart failure, making it a potent stimulator of cardiac contractility, playing a vital part in cardiac tissue re-modeling.
