  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Ceruloplasmin (CERP) rat in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Ceruloplasmin in urine and cell 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 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 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.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Thank you for your enquiry.

This kit has been tested on cell culture supernatant and urine as samples - but not on serum.

I would advise you to take a look at the datasheet and the Protocol Booklet for further information.
