  • Product overview

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

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

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Factor D cleaves factor B when the latter is complexed with factor C3b, activating the C3bbb complex, which then becomes the C3 convertase of the alternate pathway. Its function is homologous to that of C1s in the classical pathway.
  • Involvement in disease

    Complement factor D deficiency (CFDD) [MIM:613912]: An immunologic disorder characterized by increased susceptibility to bacterial infections, particularly Neisseria infections, due to a defect in the alternative complement pathway. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the peptidase S1 family.
    Contains 1 peptidase S1 domain.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us.
Protease inhibitors are not necessary for testing serum or plasma samples. We only recommend using inhibitors when testing lysate samples.
Adding protease inhibitors into serum / plasma will not interfere with the assay though.
I hope this helps and if I can assist further, please do not hesitate to contact me.
