  • Applikationshinweise
    This assay has been validated for serum, EDTA and heparin plasma, clarified milk, and tissue cul- ture samples.
    Samples containing visible particulate matter should be centrifuged before use.
    Oxytocin is identical across all species and we expect this kit may measure oxytocin from sources other than human.
    Because of the cross reactivity to mesotocin this kit should also be able to measure mesotocin from birds, fish and amphibians.
    The end user should evaluate recoveries of oxytocin in other samples being tested.
    An oxytocin standard is provided to generate a standard curve for the assay and all samples should be read off the standard curve.
    Standards or diluted samples are pipetted into a clear microtiter plate coated with an antibody to capture rabbit antibodies.
    An oxytocin-peroxidase conjugate is added to the standards and samples in the wells.
    The binding reaction is initiated by the addition of a polyclonal antibody to oxytocin to each well.
    After an overnight incubation at 4 °C the plate is washed and supplied substrate is added.
    The substrate reacts with the bound oxytocin-per- oxidase conjugate.
    After a 30 minute incubation, the reaction is stopped and the intensity of the generated color is detected in a microtiter plate reader capable of measuring 450nm wavelength.
    The concentration of the oxytocin in the sample is calculated, after making suitable correction for the dilution of the sample, using software available with most plate readers.
    Aufbereitung der Reagenzien

    Allow the kit reagents to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
    We recommend that all standards and samples be run in duplicate to allow the end user to accurately determine oxytocin concentrations.
    Ensure that all samples have reached room temperature and have been diluted as appropriate prior to running them in the kit.
    Assay Buffer Dilute Assay Buffer Concentrate 1:5 by adding one part of the concentrate to four parts of deion- ized water.
    Once diluted this is stable at 4 °C for 3 months.
    Wash Buffer Dilute Wash Buffer Concentrate 1:20 by adding one part of the concentrate to nineteen parts of deionized water.
    Once diluted this is stable at 4 °C for 3 months.
    Standard Preparation Label test tubes as #1 through #8.
    Pipet 450 μL of Assay Buffer into tube #1 and 300 μL into the remaining tubes.
    The oxytocin stock solution contains an organic solvent.
    Prerinse the pipet tip several times to ensure accurate delivery.
    Carefully add 50 μL of the oxytocin stock solution to tube #1 and vortex completely.
    Take 200 μL of the oxytocin solution in tube #1 and add it to tube #2 and vortex completely.
    Repeat the serial dilutions for tubes #3 through #8.
    The concentration of oxytocin in tubes 1 through 8 will be 10,000, 4,000, 1,600, 640, 256, 102.4, 40.96 and 16.38 pg/mL.
    Use all Standards within 2 hours of preparation.

    Aufbereitung der Proben

    Serum and Plasma Samples Serum and plasma samples should be extracted with the provided Extraction Solution, or with a solid phase C18 column extraction protocol prior to running in the kit. Protocol Using Extraction Solution: Mix 1 part sample with 1.5 parts of Extraction Solution. Vortex and then nutate at room temperature for 90 minutes. Centrifuge for 20 minutes at 4 °C at 1660 x g. Speedvac supernatant to dryness at 37 °C. Reconstitute sample with 250 µL of Assay Buffer. Milk Samples Milk samples should be clarified by centrifuging at 10,000 x g for 15 minutes. Pierce the top fatty layer and collect the supernatant liquid. Repeat the centrifugation and collection two more times. The collected supernatant liquid must then be diluted 1:10 with the provided Assay Buffer before using in the assay. The clarified milk sample, i.e., the supernatant liquid, can be stored at -20 °C until needed. Use all samples within 2 hour of preparation.

    1. Use the plate layout sheet on the back page to aid in proper sample and standard identification. Determine the number of wells to be used and return unused wells to the foil pouch with desiccant. Seal the ziploc plate bag and store at 4ºC.
      2. Pipet 100 μL of samples or standards into wells in the plate.
      3. Pipet 100 μL of Assay Buffer into wells to act as maximum binding wells (Bo or 0 pg/mL).
      4. Pipet 125 μL of Assay Buffer into the non-specific binding (NSB) wells.
      5. Add 25 μL of the DetectX® Oxytocin Conjugate to each well using a repeater pipet.
      6. Add 25 μL of the DetectX® Oxytocin Antibody to each well, except the NSB wells, using a repeater pipet.
      7. Shake the plate in a plate shaker at room temperature for 15 minutes to ensure adequate mixing of the reagents. Cover the plate with the plate sealer and store at 4 °C for 16-18 hours.
      8. The following day remove the TMB Substrate from the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Addition of cold Substrate will cause depressed signal.
      9. Aspirate the plate and wash each well 4 times with 300 μL wash buffer. Tap the plate dry on clean absorbent towels. 10. Add 100 μL of the TMB Substrate to each well, using a repeater pipet. 11. Incubate the plate at room temperature for 30 minutes without shaking. 12. Add 50 μL of the Stop Solution to each well, using a repeater or a multichannel pipet. 13. Read the optical density generated from each well in a plate reader capable of reading at 450 nm. 14. Use the plate reader's built-in 4PLC software capabilities to calculate oxytocin concentration for each sample.

    Average the duplicate OD readings for each standard and sample.
    Create a standard curve by reducing the data using the 4PLC fitting routine on the plate reader, after subtracting the mean ODs for the NSB.
    The sample concentrations obtained, calculated from the %B/B0 curve, should be multiplied by the dilution factor to obtain neat sample values.

  • Vorsichtsmaßnahmen
    As with all such products, this kit should only be used by qualified personnel who have had labo- ratory safety instruction.
    The complete insert should be read and understood before attempting to use the product.
    The antibody coated plate needs to be stored desiccated.
    The silica gel pack included in the foil ziploc bag will keep the plate dry.

    The neuropeptides, oxytocin and vasopressin were isolated and synthesized by Vincent du Vigneaud at Cor- nel Medical College in 1953, work for which he received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1955. Oxytocin is a neurohypophysial peptide which is produced in the paraventricular nuclei of the hypothalamus and stored in the posterior pituitary. The molecule consists of nine amino acids linked with a [1-6] disulfide bond and a semi- flexible carboxyamidated tail. A hormone once thought to be limited to female smooth muscle reproductive physiology and neurotransmitter1,2, recent studies have begun to investigate oxytocin's role in various behav- iors, including orgasm, social recognition, pair bonding, anxiety, and maternal behaviors3,4 and is important in male reproductive physiology5. Oxytocin and the related neurohypophysial peptide, Arg8-Vasopressin, main- tain renal water and sodium balance6. Oxytocin Highly conserved across species boundaries, oxytocin-like neurohypophysial peptides are substituted primar- ily at residues 4 and/or 8. In the oxytocin-like peptide, mesotocin, a common peptide found in some fishes, reptiles, birds, amphibians, marsupials and non-mammalian tetrapods, the leucine at residue 8 is substituted for isoleucine7. Acting in classical endocrine fashion, Oxytocin elicits regulatory effects by binding specific cell surface receptors which in turn initiate a secondary intracelluar response cascade via a phosphoinositide signaling pathway
