Human osteopontin ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative method for measuring osteopontin (OPN) in human cell culture media, plasma and urine samples. This assay has a sensitivity detection limit of 3.33 ng/ml.
Osteopontin (OPN) contains an Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) amino acid sequence, this motif is present in; vitronectin, fibronectin and many extra cellular proteins which have the ability to bind members of the integrin family of cell surface receptors. It can be also present in a number of different molecular forms in vivo that can be due to; phosphorylation, glycosylation, susceptibility to proteases, sulfation and differential RNA splicing.
Osteopontin is susceptible to proteolytic fragmentation and there is suggestions that this process may have physiologic importance, for example, a study demonstrated that thrombin treatment can enhance OPN cell adhesive activity, implying that cleavage by thrombin can lead to exposing a cryptic adhesive sequence.
All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.
