  • Product overview

    ab109722 contains 48 dipsticks and necessary components to quantify the levels of the fully assembled Complex I enzyme complex in human and bovine samples. The kit includes sufficient materials to generate a standard curve and evaluate several unknown samples.

    Based on the immunologic sandwich assay, the kit utilizes two monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) specific to different antigens present on the Complex I enzyme complex. One antibody is immobilized on the nitrocellulose membrane in a thin line perpendicular to the length of the dipstick, while the other is gold-conjugated and combined with the sample mix. The sample contents containing the gold-conjugated mAb wick past the mAb immobilized on the dipstick. When assembled Complex I is present in the sample, a red line appears at the site of the anti-Complex I antibody line. The signal intensity is directly related to the amount of Complex I in the sample. The signal intensity is best measured by a dipstick reader or may be analyzed by another imaging system. To identify defects in Complex I that do not affect enzyme assembly combine this assay with ab109720 to determine the relative specific activity of Complex I.

  • Dipstick assays use the well-established lateral flow concept, whereby capture antibodies are striped onto nitrocellulose membrane and a Whatman paper wicking pad draws the sample through the antibody bands. Detector antibodies, conjugated to gold, are dried in the wells of a 96-well plate. Sample is added to the well, the dipstick inserted, and within minutes the line for each target is revealed as the protein-detector antibody-gold complex binds with the capture antibodies. Multiplexing dipstick assays have multiple target protein lines. A positive control goat anti-mouse antibody line is included on all assays to ensure that adequate wicking of the sample occurred.

Customer reviews and Q&As

We don’t have a lot of experience with blood samples and Dipstick assays. From the limited experience we have, I suggest to always run on fresh EDTA blood (store at 4C for no more than 1 week). If this is not possible, I suggest to free...
