Andere Bezeichnung Apolipoprotein A-I (APOA1 ELISA Kit Abstract)
Hintergrund Human apolipoprotein A-I (Apo A-I) comprises about 70% of the high-density lipoproteins (HDL) protein mass and Apo A-II another 15-20%. Apo A-I, a 243-amino acid molecule that contains a series of highly homologous amphipathic alpha-helices, is a 28-kDa single polypeptide that lacks glycosylation or disulfide linkages. About 5-10% of human plasma Apo A-I exists in a lipoprotein-unassociated state. Apo A-I appears to have effects on the atherosclerosis inhibition, reverse cholesterol transport and anti-inflammation. Oxidation of specific amino acid residues in Apo A-I may contribute to atherogenesis by impairing cholesterol efflux from macrophages. A majority of HDL functionality is derived from the ability of Apo A-I to sequester phospholipid and cholesterol and interact with plasma enzymes and cellular receptors. During reverse cholesterol transport, HDL interacts with lecithin:cholesteryl acyltransferase (LCAT) and cellular receptors, including ATP-binding cassette transporter protein A-1 (ABCA1) and the scavenger receptor class B type I in an ordered fashion that is reflected by HDL particle lipid composition. A high-affinity HDL receptor for Apo A-I is beta-chain of ATP synthase on the surface of hepatocytes. The plasma concentration of Apo A-I is one of the best indicators of susceptibility to cardiovascular disease.

Protokoll This assay employs a quantitative sandwich enzyme immunoassay technique that measures human Apo A-I in less than 4 hours. A polyclonal antibody specific for human Apo A-1 has been pre-coated onto a 96-well microplate with removable strips. Apo A-1 in standards and samples is sandwiched by the immobilized antibody and the biotinylated polyclonal antibody specific for Apo A-1, which is recognized by a streptavidin-peroxidase conjugate. All unbound material is then washed away and a peroxidase enzyme substrate is added. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.
Aufbereitung der Reagenzien

Freshly dilute all reagents and bring all reagents to room temperature before use. If crystals have formed in the concentrate, mix gently until the crystals have completely dissolved. MIx Diluent Concentrate (10x): Dilute the MIx Diluent 1:10 with reagent grade water. Store for up to 1 month at 2-8°C. Standard Curve: Reconstitute the 3.2 g of Apo A-I Standard with 4 ml of MIx Diluent to generate a stock solution of 800 ng/ml. Allow the standard to sit for 10 minutes with gentle agitation prior to making dilutions. Further dilute the stock solution 1:4 with MIx to generate a standard solution of 200 ng/ml. Prepare duplicate or triplicate standard points by serially diluting the standard solution (200 ng/ml) 1:2 with equal volume of MIx Diluent to produce 100, 50, 25, 12.5, 6.25 and 3.13 ng/ml solutions. MIx Diluent serves as the zero standard (0 ng/ml). Any remaining solution should be frozen at -20°C.

Any remaining solution should be frozen at -20°C. Wash Buffer Concentrate (20x): Dilute the Wash Buffer Concentrate 1:20 with reagent grade water. SP Conjugate (100x): Spin down the SP Conjugate briefly and dilute the desired amount of the conjugate 1:100 with MIx Diluent. Any remaining solution should be frozen at -20°C.

Probennahme Urine: Collect urine using sample pot. Centrifuge samples at 800 x g for 10 minutes. Dilute samples 1:4 into MIx Diluent. Store samples at -20°C or below for up to 3 months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Cell Culture Supernatants: Centrifuge cell culture media at 3000 x g for 10 minutes to remove debris. Collect supernatants and assay. Store samples at -20°C or below. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. Saliva: Collect saliva using sample tube. Centrifuge samples at 800 x g for 10 minutes. Dilute samples 1:8 into MIx Diluent. Store samples at -20°C or below for up to 3 months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. 2 Milk: Collect milk using sample tube. Centrifuge samples at 800 x g for 10 minutes and assay. Store samples at -20°C or below for up to 3 months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

Prepare all reagents, working standards and samples as instructed. Bring all reagents to room temperature before use. The assay is performed at room temperature (20 - 30 °C). Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame and return them immediately to the foil pouch with desiccant inside. Reseal the pouch securely to minimize exposure to water vapor and store in a vacuum desiccator. Add 50 µL of Apo A-I standard or sample per well. Cover wells with a sealing tape and incubate for two hours. Start the timer after the last sample addition. Wash five times with 200 µL of Wash Buffer manually. Invert the plate each time and decant the contents, hit it 4-5 times on absorbent paper towel to completely remove the liquid. If using a machine wash six times with 300 µL of Wash Buffer and then invert the plate, decant the contents, hit it 4-5 times on absorbent paper towel to completely remove the liquid. Add 50 µL of Biotinylated Apo A-I Antibody to each well and incubate for one hour. Wash the microplate as described above. 3 Add 50 µL of Streptavidin-Peroxidase Conjugate to each well and incubate for 30 minutes. Turn on the microplate reader and set up the program in advance. Wash the microplate as described above. Add 50 µL of Chromogen Substrate per well and incubate for about 20 minutes or till the optimal blue color density develops. Gently tap plate to ensure thorough mixing and break the bubbles in the well with pipette tip. Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. The color will change from blue to yellow. Read the absorbance on a microplate reader at a wavelength of 450 nm immediately. If wavelength correction is available, subtract readings at 570 nm from those at 450 nm to correct optical imperfections. Otherwise, read the plate at 450 nm only. Please note that some unstable black particles may be generated at high concentration points after stopping the reaction for about 10 minutes, which will reduce the readings.


Calculate the mean value of the duplicate or triplicate readings for each standard and sample. To generate Standard Curve, plot 4-parameter graph or semi-log graph using the Angiotensin II standard concentrations on the x-axis and the corresponding mean 450 nm absorbance on the y-axis. The best-fit line can be determined by regression analysis using log-log or four- parameter logistic curve-fit. Determine the unknown sample concentration from the Standard Curve and multiply the value by the dilution factor. Standard Curve The curve is provided for illustration only. A standard curve should be generated each time the assay is performed.

  • The purpose of this experiment is to validate the measurement of Apo A-I in frozen Human Serum Samples. ABIN612662 measures Apo A-I in an assay range from 1.563ng/ml to 100ng/ml. For human serum a sample dilution of 1:100000 is recommended. However, we found that a 1:20000 dilution was more appropriate for our samples. The average human value is reported to be 1.1mg/ml (i.e. 1.1×106ng/ml).

  • The mean values for the two samples 1.63×106 and 1.27×106, are 48% and 16% higher than the manufacturer’s reported average human serum value of 1.1×106ng/ml (as reported in the assay instruction manual), but are consistent with the reported range of values in clinical samples (Contois et al. (1996)).

  • The standard curves for the assays reported were fitted with a 4-Parameter Logistic model, giving good quality fits (R2>0.95) (Panel B). All statistical calculations were performed in Microsoft Excel 2016. ANOVA was performed using the Excel Data Analysis Toolpak.

  • All absorbance values fell within the range of the standard curve (Panel A). The assay precision experiment yielded %CVs within the target range (<10%) (Panel C).
