Intended Use:
BNP-26 fluorescent EIA (porcine, ovine) is intended to be used for quantitatively detecting amounts of porcine and ovine brain natriuretic peptide-26 (BNP-26) in samples of plasma, CSF, serum, urine or any biological fluid.

Assay Principle:
1. The microwell plates have 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. Fluorescence 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:
BNP-26 (Porcine or Ovine) 100%.
BNP-32 (Porcine)  100%.
BNP-32 (Rat)  0%.
BNP-45 (Rat)  0
BNP-32 (Human)  0%.
Alpha ANP (1-28) (Human, Canine) 0%.

Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP-26) was first discovered in extracts of porcine brain, whereas within humans it is found to be made in the cardiac ventricles. It is a 26 a.a. polypeptide which has been found to be secreted by the ventricles of heart when there is excessive stretching of myocytes, it is also released alongside an NT-proBNP (76 amino acids amino terminal fragment). 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).
