  • Product overview

    Abcam’s C Reactive Protein (PTX1) Rat in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of C Reactive Protein in urine, plasma, serum, and cell culture supernatants.

    A C Reactive Protein specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a C Reactive Protein specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Conjugate is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with wash buffer. TMB is then used to visualize Streptavidin-Peroxidase enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by Streptavidin-Peroxidase to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of C Reactive Protein captured in plate.

  • PlatformMicroplate


  • FunctionDisplays several functions associated with host defense: it promotes agglutination, bacterial capsular swelling, phagocytosis and complement fixation through its calcium-dependent binding to phosphorylcholine. Can interact with DNA and histones and may scavenge nuclear material released from damaged circulating cells.
  • Tissue specificityFound in plasma.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the pentaxin family.
    Contains 1 pentaxin domain.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
