  • Product overview

    Protein Carbonyl ELISA Kit (ab238536) is designed for the quantitative measurement of protein carbonyls in plasma, serum, cell lysates or purified proteins. 

    With this kit protein samples are first allowed to adsorb to wells of a 96-well plate and then react with dinitrophenylhydrazine (DNPH), which allows for derivatization of the carbonyl group. There are no concentration or precipitation steps, that contribute to sample loss. The kit allows detection of as little as 10 µg/mL using a standard microplate reader. The quantity of protein carbonyls in protein sample is determined by comparing its absorbance with that of a known reduced/oxidized BSA standard curve.

  • This standard curve is for demonstration only. A standard curve must be run with each protein carbonyl elisa experiment.

  • STO (MEF), HeLa and MDA-231 cells were sonicated in 25mM HEPES, pH 7.5, 150 mM NaCl, 10 mM MgCl2, 1 mM EDTA, 2% Glycerol. Cell Lysates and BSA Standard from Pierce BCA Protein Assay were diluted to 10 μg/mL with 1X PBS and coated onto a 96-well Protein Binding Plate. The protein carbonyl levels were determined as described in the Protein Carbonyl ELISA Protocol.
