- General protocol (1 book).

Intended Use:
Human betatropin EIA kit is designed for in-vitro quantitative analysis of human betatropin using culture media, CSF, plasma, serum and various other biological fluids samples.

Assay Principle:
1. Pre-coated microwell plate 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 in samples can then be determined using this human betatropin EIA kit by extrapolation from a standard curve.

Betatrophin is a gene which is located on chromosome 19 (humans) and chromosome 9 (mouse). It is a peptide hormone which has been shown in mice to elevate the rate of beta cells undergoing cell division. It also belongs to the angiopoietin-like gene family, but does not contain the C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain, a 22kDa protein which is made of two coiled-coil domains and an N-terminal secretion signal.
