Product Information

KE10066 is a solid phase sandwich Enzyme Linked-Immuno-Sorbent Assay (Sandwich ELISA). The Mouse Cystatin C ELISA kit is to be used to detect and quantify protein levels of endogenous mouse Cystatin C. The assay recognizes mouse Cystatin C. An antibody specific for mouse Cystatin C has been pre-coated onto the microwells. The mouse Cystatin C protein in samples is captured by the coated antibody after incubation. Following extensive washing, another antibody of biotinylated specific for mouse Cystatin C is added to detect the captured mouse Cystatin C protein. For signal development, Streptavidin-HRP is added, followed by Tetramethyl-benzidine (TMB) reagent. Solution containing sulfuric acid is used to stop color development and the color intensity which is proportional to the quantity of bound protein is measurable at 450 nm with the correction wavelength set at 630 nm.

Background Information

Cystatin C is a proteinase inhibitor from the cysteine protease inhibitor super family, which plays an important role in the intracellular catabolism of proteins and peptides. Cystatin C is produced by all the nucleated cells irrespective of age, gender, ethnicity, or muscle mass. The cystatin C based glomerular filtration rate (GFR) estimation can be used as a validation test for the poor prognosis of the chronic kidney disease patients. It has a pleiotropic effect in the human vascular pathophysiology that is related to the occurrence of coronary heart disease (CHD), ischemic stroke (IS), heart failure (HF), subclinical atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease (CVD).
