  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Apolipoprotein E (APOE) Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Apolipoprotein E concentrations in Human plasma, serum, cerebrospinal fluid and cell culture samples.

    An Apolipoprotein E specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently an Apolipoprotein E specific biotinylated detection antibody is added and then followed by washing with wash buffer. Streptavidin-Peroxidase Complex 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 Apolipoprotein E captured in plate. The kit recognizes ApoE-2, ApoE-3, and ApoE-4 isoforms.

Thank you for the clarification. I am not sure why the lysis buffer is failing for you, if you mean the one listed in the protocol:

Cell Lysate: Rinse cells with cold PBS and then scrape the cells
into a tube with 5 ml cold PBS with 0.5...

Yes, the cocktail that is used by the laboratory that validates this kit is likely to be equivalent to what you have. I recommend using the inhibitor cocktail you have as recommended on the datasheet that comes with it.

Yes, EDTA has trouble going into solution at pH7.2. You will need to add NaOH until the pH gets to 8, and then it typically goes into solution. The safest way is with NaOH pellets but if you have an NaOH solution, you can carefully add that while monit...

Thank you for your patience with this reply.

I heard back from the lab that for the kits below, the antibodies were raised against recombinant proteins. The epitopes have not been mapped.
