  • Product overview

    Abcam’s RAGE Rat ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Rat RAGE in plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Rat RAGE coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and RAGE present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Rat RAGE 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 RAGE bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    We have not been able to detect the endogenous Rat RAGE in normal serum with ab100780, only in serum spiked with Rat RAGE.

  • Platform


  • Function
    Mediates interactions of advanced glycosylation end products (AGE). These are nonenzymatically glycosylated proteins which accumulate in vascular tissue in aging and at an accelerated rate in diabetes. Acts as a mediator of both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in conditions such as atherosclerosis and in particular as a complication of diabetes. AGE/RAGE signaling plays an important role in regulating the production/expression of TNF-alpha, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. Interaction with S100A12 on endothelium, mononuclear phagocytes, and lymphocytes triggers cellular activation, with generation of key proinflammatory mediators. Interaction with S100B after myocardial infarction may play a role in myocyte apoptosis by activating ERK1/2 and p53/TP53 signaling (By similarity). Receptor for amyloid beta peptide. Contributes to the translocation of amyloid-beta peptide (ABPP) across the cell membrane from the extracellular to the intracellular space in cortical neurons. ABPP-initiated RAGE signaling, especially stimulation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), has the capacity to drive a transport system delivering ABPP as a complex with RAGE to the intraneuronal space.

The laboratory has informed me that ab100780 will detect soluble RAGE.

Thank you for contacting us.

Although this particular kit was neither designed nor validated with lysate samples, our kits are very accommodating to many different samples types so lysates will most likely work. If you decide to test th...

Thank you for calling Abcam yesterday.

I have talked to the lab and we should be able to add the standard from ab100780 to the catalogue. It may take a week or so though. I will contact you with the abID when it is ready to be ordered.
