DMP1 ELISA Kit (Rat)

  • Created on the 3 November, 2017.

BACKGROUND

Dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1) is a protein that is vital for dentin and proper mineralisation of bone, it can be found in a wide range of cells of tooth and bone tissues. A member of the Small Integrin-Binding Ligand, N-linked Glycoprotein (SIBLING) family and a constitutive protein that is present within the extracellular matrix of osteocytes. Initially synthesised as 105kDa proprotein (full length) and then divided into 57kDa C terminal protein fragment and a 37kDa N terminal protein fragment just before it is being secreted. The protein itself consists multiple phosphorylation sites acidic domains, a large number of acidic domains, a DNA binding domain and a functional arg-gly-asp cell attachment sequence. DMP1 in the blood is regarded as a crucial biomarker that can reflect osteocyte activity, provide useful information on the process of bone and phosphate metabolism. Mutations in the gene are found to lead to autosomal recessive hypophosphatemia, this is a disease which results in osteomalacia and rickets. The concentration of DMP1 present in rat blood can determined quantitatively using ELISA assay method.

INTENDED USE

Rat DMP1 ELISA kit is designed for detecting quantitative levels of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1) in rat plasma, serum and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 4.04 pg/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of dentin matrix protein 1 (DMP1) using this rat DMP1 ELISA kit was approximately 4.04 pg/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 39.06 – 2,500.0 pg/ml.

TESTIMONIALS arrow icon

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

Dr. P. Anderson
Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
