  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Oncostatin M Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human Oncostatin M in plasma and cell culture supernatants. (GeneCards: Osm) 

    Note: Human Oncostatin M concentration is pretty low in normal plasma, it may not be detected in this assay.

    We have not been able to detect endogenous Human Oncostatin M in normal serum with ab100619, only in serum spiked with Human Oncostatin M.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human Oncostatin M coated on a 96- well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and Oncostatin M present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Oncostatin M antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of Oncostatin M bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Platform


  • Function
    Growth regulator. Inhibits the proliferation of a number of tumor cell lines. Stimulates proliferation of AIDS-KS cells. It regulates cytokine production, including IL-6, G-CSF and GM-CSF from endothelial cells. Uses both type I OSM receptor (heterodimers composed of LIPR and IL6ST) and type II OSM receptor (heterodimers composed of OSMR and IL6ST). Involved in the maturation of fetal hepatocytes, thereby promoting liver development and regeneration.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the LIF/OSM family.
  • Post-translational
    Propeptide processing is not important for receptor binding activity but may be important growth-inhibitory activity.

Thank you for your enquiry. I am sorry to confirm that ab100619 Oncostatin M Human ELISA Kit has only been validated for serum, pasma, cell culture spernatants, and has not been tested with CSF.  However, this ELISA kit should be accommodating to a ...

It is very difficult for us to recommend dilutions for kits like this since samples can have a huge range in the concentration of protein present depending on the samples. The best thing to do to is to run a representative samples in a serial dilution ...
