  • Product overview

    Abcam’s STAT5 A/B in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit (ab205714) is designed for the semi-quantitative measurement of STAT5 A/B protein in Human cells. STAT5 A and STAT5 B (collectively known as STAT5 A/B) are two very closely related proteins. Although encoded by different genes, STAT5 A and STAT5 B share 96% identity at the protein level. Similarly to other STAT proteins, STAT5 A and STAT5 B are activated by tyrosine phosphorylation, usually by JAK proteins, at Tyr694 and Tyr699, respectively.

    An alternative fluorescent substrate, ADHP, can be used with this assay. A microplate reader capable of measuring fluorescence is required if using this product.

  • Notes

    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.

    Abcam’s  STAT5 A/B SimpleStep ELISA kit (ab205714) has been re-developed with new detector antibody.  From February 18, 2016 the kit will be delivered with a new detector STAT5 antibody. This change was necessary because of a decrease in the performance of the polyclonal STAT5 antibody that was previously used for detection in recent production lots. We have identified a new antibody to use in the SimpleStep ELISA platform that provides higher performance.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab205714 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

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.


  • A431 cells were cultured in 96-well tissue culture plates and treated (15 min) with a dose-range of EGF before cell lysis. Data from quadruplicate measurements of STAT5 A/B (pY694/699) are plotted and compared against Total STAT5 A/B levels.

  • Data from triplicate measurements (mean +/- SD) are plotted and compared to 1X Cell Extraction Buffer PTR (zero).

  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

Customer reviews and Q&As

The STAT 5 AB ELISA Kit (ab205714), which reacts with human stat5, can also be used to measure total stat5 level in mice (c57 background) liver.
Just follow the protocol provided in the kit and you will have a good result. One thing need to mention is the protein concentration. I tried 300 ug/ml at first, and the reading exceeded the highest standard several folds. Then I used 50 ug/ml and the reading is around half of the highest standard. So 50-100 ug/ml may be a good protein concentration for this kit when used for mice liver.
Generally speaking, the kit is easy to use and fast, because it is a SimpleStep kit. The sensitivity is very good and it can detect strong stat5 signal in a mice liver lysates.
