Human FOXO1A ELISA Kit (ab215087) is a single-wash 90 min sandwich ELISA designed for the quantitative measurement of FOXO1A protein in cell culture extracts and tissue extracts. It uses our proprietary SimpleStep ELISA® technology. Quantitate Human FOXO1A with 40 pg/ml sensitivity.
SimpleStep ELISA® technology employs capture antibodies conjugated to an affinity tag that is recognized by the monoclonal antibody used to coat our SimpleStep ELISA® plates. This approach to sandwich ELISA allows the formation of the antibody-analyte sandwich complex in a single step, significantly reducing assay time. See the SimpleStep ELISA® protocol summary in the image section for further details. Our SimpleStep ELISA® technology provides several benefits:
- Single-wash protocol reduces assay time to 90 minutes or less
- High sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility from superior antibodies
- Fully validated in biological samples
- 96-wells plate breakable into 12 x 8 wells strips
A 384-well SimpleStep ELISA® microplate (ab203359) is available to use as an alternative to the 96-well microplate provided with SimpleStep ELISA® kits.
FOXO1A (also known as Forkhead box protein O1 and forkhead in rhabdomyosarcoma) is an intracellular transcription factor. FOXO1A has widespread expression and functions in metabolic homoeostasis and insulin signaling. Human FOXO1A has 92% protein sequence identity to mouse and rat FOXO1A.

FunctionTranscription factor which acts as a regulator of cell responses to oxidative stress. In the presence of KIRT1, mediates down-regulation of cyclin D1 and up-regulation of CDKN1B levels which are required for cell transition from proliferative growth to quiescence.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in FOXO1 are a cause of rhabdomyosarcoma type 2 (RMS2) [MIM:268220]. It is a form of rhabdomyosarcoma, a highly malignant tumor of striated muscle derived from primitive mesenchimal cells and exhibiting differentiation along rhabdomyoblastic lines. Rhabdomyosarcoma is one of the most frequently occurring soft tissue sarcomas and the most common in children. It occurs in four forms: alveolar, pleomorphic, embryonal and botryoidal rhabdomyosarcomas. Note=Chromosomal aberrations involving FOXO1 are found in rhabdomyosarcoma. Translocation (2;13)(q35;q14) with PAX3; translocation t(1;13)(p36;q14) with PAX7. The resulting protein is a transcriptional activator.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 fork-head DNA-binding domain.
modificationsPhosphorylated by AKT1; insulin-induced (By similarity). IGF1 rapidly induces phosphorylation of Ser-256, Thr-24, and Ser-319. Phosphorylation of Ser-256 decreases DNA-binding activity and promotes the phosphorylation of Thr-24, and Ser-319, permitting phosphorylation of Ser-322 and Ser-325, probably by CK1, leading to nuclear exclusion and loss of function. Phosphorylation of Ser-329 is independent of IGF1 and leads to reduced function. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Shuttles between cytoplasm and nucleus.

SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.
Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.
The concentrations of FOXO1A were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the FOXO1A standard curve and corrected for sample dilution and extract load. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean FOXO1A concentration was determined to be 107.7 pg/µg HEK293T extract, 37.5 pg/µg Daudi extract, and 35.9 pg/µg Raji extract.
The concentrations of FOXO1A were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the human FOXO1A standard curve and corrected for sample dilution and extract load. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean FOXO1A concentration was determined to be 81.1 pg/µg C2C12 extract and 53.5 pg/µg PC12 extract.
