  • Product overview

    Abcam’s mouse Lipocalin-2 (NGAL) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of mouse Lipocalin-2 in cell culture supernatants, serum, plasma (heparin) and urine. (Genecards: Lcn2)


    A Lipocalin-2 specific rat monoclonal 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 Lipocalin-2 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 Lipocalin-2 amount of sample captured in plate.


    Get higher sensitivity in only 90 minutes with Mouse Lipocalin-2 ELISA Kit (NGAL) (ab199083) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • Function

    Iron-trafficking protein involved in multiple processes such as apoptosis, innate immunity and renal development. Binds iron through association with 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,5-DHBA), a siderophore that shares structural similarities with bacterial enterobactin, and delivers or removes iron from the cell, depending on the context. Iron-bound form (holo-24p3) is internalized following binding to the SLC22A17 (24p3R) receptor, leading to release of iron and subsequent increase of intracellular iron concentration. In contrast, association of the iron-free form (apo-24p3) with the SLC22A17 (24p3R) receptor is followed by association with an intracellular siderophore, iron chelation and iron transfer to the extracellular medium, thereby reducing intracellular iron concentration. Involved in apoptosis due to interleukin-3 (IL3) deprivation: iron-loaded form increases intracellular iron concentration without promoting apoptosis, while iron-free form decreases intracellular iron levels, inducing expression of the proapoptotic protein BCL2L11/BIM, resulting in apoptosis. Involved in innate immunity, possibly by sequestrating iron, leading to limit bacterial growth.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in bone marrow and in tissues that are prone to exposure to microorganism. High expression is found in bone marrow as well as in uterus, prostate, salivary gland, stomach, appendix, colon, trachea and lung. Not found in the small intestine or peripheral blood leukocytes.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Lipocalin family.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted. Upon binding to the SLC22A17 (24p3R) receptor, it is internalized.

Question

As I’m not familiar with these items, I tried to find the ab codes through your site.
For the items I found a relative code I have update the list.
For those I don’t have a reference code, this is because either no products matches or all available products reacts for humans when we need them for pigs.
So please check the list again and advice.

I have received information regarding

ab119589 Cystatin C Human ELISA Kit
ab119590 Cystatin C Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119596 KIM1 Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119597 KIM1 Rat ELISA Kit
ab119601 Lipocalin-2 / NGAL Mouse ELISA Kit
ab119601 Lipocalin-2 / NGAL Mouse ELISA Kit

these has not been tested with Swine or pig samples so we are unable to confirm the species cross reactivity. It mean only ab100755, ab100756, ab108674, ab108794, ab113352, ab113353 are OK to use with Porcine samples and are guaranteed. Would you like to have a quote for these antibodies.

I hope this info will be helpful. Should you require more information please do not hesitate to contact me.
