  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Ceruloplasmin Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Ceruloplasmin concentrations in urine, saliva, milk and culture supernatants.

    A Ceruloplasmin specific antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates and blocked. Standards or test samples are added to the wells and subsequently a Ceruloplasmin 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 Ceruloplasmin captured in plate.

  • FunctionCeruloplasmin is a blue, copper-binding (6-7 atoms per molecule) glycoprotein. It has ferroxidase activity oxidizing Fe(2+) to Fe(3+) without releasing radical oxygen species. It is involved in iron transport across the cell membrane.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in CP are the cause of aceruloplasminemia (ACERULOP) [MIM:604290]. It is an autosomal recessive disorder of iron metabolism characterized by iron accumulation in the brain as well as visceral organs. Clinical features consist of the triad of retinal degeneration, diabetes mellitus and neurological disturbances.
    Note=Ceruloplasmin levels are decreased in Wilson disease, in which copper cannot be incorporated into ceruloplasmin in liver because of defects in the copper-transporting ATPase 2.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the multicopper oxidase family.
    Contains 3 F5/8 type A domains.
    Contains 6 plastocyanin-like domains.

Thank you for your phone call this morning.

I have now received the confirmation from the laboratory that in the standard vial you received is indeed an amount of 320ng.

I apologize again for this missing information.

Thank you for contacting us. The standard is 320 ng to be mixed with 1 ml diluent to create the 320 ng/ml solution.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for your patience while I contacted the lab. They have informed my that ab108818, would not be suitable for serum samples and that it only has around 20% cross-reactivity with monkey samples. However, ab108817, will react with...
