Abcam’s CD36 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Mouse CD36 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.
This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse CD36 coated on a 96- well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and CD36 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse CD36 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 CD36 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.
RelevanceCD36 is a cell surface class B scavenger receptor. CD36 is preferentially found within lipid rafts, which facilitates its association with receptors, signalling and adapter molecules. CD36 binds to collagen, thrombospondin, anionic phospholipids and oxidized LDL. May function as a cell adhesion molecule. Directly mediates cyto adherence of Plasmodium falciparum parasitized erythrocytes. Binds long chain fatty acids and may function in the transport and/or as a regulator of fatty acid transport.
