  • Product overview

    Kidney Injury Molecule-1 in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Kidney Injury Molecule-1 protein in dog biological fluids.

  • Notes

    In this assay the KIM-1 present in samples reacts with the anti-KIM-1 antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtitre wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, the Detection Antibody, biotin conjugated anti-KIM-1, is added and complexes are formed. Following a wash step, the horseradish peroxidase (HRP) conjugated Streptavidin is added and complexes are formed. After another washing step, the complexes are assayed by the addition of a chromogenic substrate, 3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of KIM-1 in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of KIM-1 in the test sample. The quantity of KIM-1 in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    May play a role in T-helper cell development and the regulation of asthma and allergic diseases. Receptor for TIMD4 (By similarity). In case of human hepatitis A virus (HHAV) infection, functions as a cell-surface receptor for the virus. May play a role in kidney injury and repair.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed, with highest levels in kidney and testis. Expressed by activated CD4+ T-cells during the development of helper T-cells responses.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily. TIM family.
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Test canine KIM-1 ELISA kit with feline urine

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
Feline urine sample was tested with canine KIM-1ELISA kit for cross reactivity test. ELISA was carried out with some modifications (dilution factor and incubation time) and we could quantify the level of feline KIM-1. Overall our sample concentration was low .
All kit procedure was really easy to follow and color pigment in the diluent solution helps to distinguish each wells when I add sample.
