  • Product overview

    The Rat Neurotrophin-3 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213905) is designed for the quantitative measurement of Rat Neurotrophin-3 in cell culture supernatants and serum. 

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for Neurotrophin-3 has been pre-coated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells; a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for Neurotrophin-3 is added subsequently and then 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. HRP substrate TMB is used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the rat Neurotrophin-3 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Notes

    Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) is a new member of the nerve growth factor gene family, which plays an important role in the development and maintenance of the vertebrate nervous system. NT-3 and its receptor, called neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor type 3 (Ntrk3; also called TrkC), are expressed early and throughout embryogenesis. NT-3 is one of five neurotrophin growth factors which shape the development of the nervous system by regulating neuronal survival and differentiation. NT-3 may be one of the central nervous system-derived factors that mediate neural crest (NC) cell proliferation in vivo. NT-3 has been mapped to human chromosome 12p and mouse chromosome 6.
