  • Product overview

    Abcam’s mouse GDNF in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of mouse GDNF in cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA). 

    A GDNF specific goat polyclonal antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and incubated. A biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat, specific for GDNF is then added followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. TMB is then used to visualize the HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the mouse GDNF amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Research areas
  • Relevance
    Glial cell line derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF) is a highly conserved neurotrophic factor that is a distant member of the TGF beta superfamily. The GDNF gene product is processed to a disulphide-linked homodimer, which is a ligand for the RET protooncogene. GDNF protects and repairs dopamine-containing neurons, which degenerate in Parkinson's disease, and motor neurons, which die in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The use of GDNF in the treatment of Parkinson's disease has shown promise in the clinic. Treatment of spinal cord injuries with GDNF has also produced neurological improvement.

good kit

Excellent Excellent 5/5 (Ease of Use)
I used cell media for the kit, and it worked really well.

The phenol red within the cell medium should not interfere with the measurement at 450nm but we would suggest running a media control just to make sure which can also act as your negative control.

With regards to the sample preparation, no additional pre-treatment of the customers samples is necessary when using cell supernatant however, it is true that acidifying the samples can enhance the activation of GDNF so if you wish to do this, you can but please remember to add alkali to neutralise the samples.
