  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Mesothelin in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Mesothelin protein in mouse serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants and, cell and tissue extract samples. (Genecards: Msln)

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • Notes

    Mesothelin is expressed as a much larger, 70 kDa precursor, which is cleaved into two functional proteins, Megakaryocyte potentiating factor and Mesothelin. Mesothelin is a glycosylated cell-surface protein, anchored to the plasma membrane via its GPI anchor. Membrane-anchored forms of Mesothelin may play a role in cellular adhesion.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • 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 Mesothelin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Mesothelin standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. Note that 1X Diluted samples were pre-diluted to 50%. The interpolated, dilution factor-corrected values are plotted in pg of Mesothelin per mL of neat sample (mean +/- SD, n=2).

  • The concentrations of Mesothelin were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the Mesothelin standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. Note that 1X Diluted C2C12 cell extract samples were pre-diluted to 125 µg/mL. Note that 1X Diluted NIH/3T3 cell extract samples were pre-diluted to 250 µg/mL. The interpolated, dilution factor-corrected values are plotted in pg of Mesothelin per mg of extract (mean +/- SD, n=2).

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for getting in touch.

Both capture and detector antibodies were generated using Mesothelin cleaved form (amino acids 298-600 of the precursor protein, http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q61468). Therefore, this kit cannot measure Megakaryocyte-potentiating factor (amino acids 36-288).

The reactivity with the precursor Mesothelin (amino acids 36-600) was not tested.

I am happy to answer any further questions you have.
