  • Product overview

    The Human LOXL2 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213808) is designed for the quantitative detection of Human LOXL2 in cell culture supernatants, cell lysates, tissue homogenates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for LOXL2 has been pre-coated onto 96-well plates. Standards (NSO, Q26-Q774) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for LOXL2 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB was used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the Human LOXL2 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Notes

    Lysyl oxidase homolog 2 is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the LOXL2 gene. This gene encodes a member of the lysyl oxidase gene family. The prototypic member of the family is essential to the biogenesis of connective tissue; encoding an extracellular copper-dependent amine oxidase that catalyzes the first step in the formation of crosslinks in collagens and elastin. A highly conserved amino acid sequence at the C-terminus end appears to be sufficient for amine oxidase activity, suggesting that each family member may retain this function. The N-terminus is poorly conserved and may impart additional roles in developmental regulation, senescence, tumor suppression, cell growth control and chemotaxis to each member of the family. LOXL2 can also crosslink collagen type IV and hence influence the sprouting of new blood vessels.

  • Research areas

  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in many tissues. Highest expression in reproductive tissues, placenta, uterus and prostate.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the lysyl oxidase family.
    Contains 4 SRCR domains.
  • Post-translational

    The lysine tyrosylquinone cross-link (LTQ) is generated by condensation of the epsilon-amino group of a lysine with a topaquinone produced by oxidation of tyrosine.
