Mouse Albumin ELISA Kit (ab207620) is a single-wash 90 min sandwich ELISA designed for the quantitative measurement of Albumin protein in serum, cit plasma, edta plasma, hep plasma, and urine. It uses our proprietary SimpleStep ELISA® technology. Quantitate Mouse Albumin with 25 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.
This kit recognizes both native mouse Albumin protein serum, plasma and urine.
Tissue and cell extract samples have not been tested with this kit.
Human serum albumin was prepared at 50 ng/mL and assayed for cross reactivity. No cross-reactivity was observed.
This kit recognizes mouse Serum Albumin protein.
Other species reactivity was determined by measuring 1:10,000,000 dilutions of serum samples of various species, interpolating the protein concentrations from the mouse standard curve, and expressing the interpolated concentrations as a percentage of the protein concentration in mouse serum assayed at the same dilution.
Reactivity < 1% was determined for the following species: Human, Rat, Hamster, Guinea Pig, Rabbit, Dog, Goat, Pig, Cow, Sheep
Albumin (ALB), the main protein of plasma, has a good binding capacity for water, Ca2+, Na+, K+, fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs. Its main function is the regulation of the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. It also serves as a major zinc transporter in plasma, typically binds about 80% of all plasma zinc.

FunctionSerum albumin, the main protein of plasma, has a good binding capacity for water, Ca(2+), Na(+), K(+), fatty acids, hormones, bilirubin and drugs. Its main function is the regulation of the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. Major zinc transporter in plasma, typically binds about 80% of all plasma zinc.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ALB are a cause of familial dysalbuminemic hyperthyroxinemia (FDH) [MIM:103600]. FDH is a form of euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia that is due to increased affinity of ALB for T(4). It is the most common cause of inherited euthyroid hyperthyroxinemia in Caucasian population.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ALB/AFP/VDB family.
Contains 3 albumin domains.
modificationsKenitra variant is partially O-glycosylated at Thr-620. It has two new disulfide bonds Cys-600 to Cys-602 and Cys-601 to Cys-606.
Glycated in diabetic patients.
Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
Acetylated on Lys-223 by acetylsalicylic acid.
- Information by UniProt
- Albumin (32 AA)
Matched antibody pairs
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
Example of mouse Albumin standard curve in Sample Diluent NS. The Serum Albumin standard curve was prepared as described. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.
The concentrations of Serum Albumin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Serum Albumin standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted is a 1:40,000,000 dilution for all samples. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Serum Albumin concentration was determined to be 25 mg/mL in serum, 14 mg/mL in plasma (citrate) and 18 mg/mL in plasma (heparin) and 16 mg/mL in plasma (EDTA).
The concentrations of Serum Albumin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Serum Albumin standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted is a 1:1,600 dilution for all samples. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean Serum Albumin concentration was determined to be 6.3 µg/mL in urine.
Linearity of dilution is determined based on interpolated values from the standard curve. Linearity of dilution defines a sample concentration interval in which interpolated target concentrations are directly proportional to sample dilution.
Native Serum Albumin was measured in the following biological samples in a 2-fold dilution series. Sample dilutions are made in Sample Diluent NS.
