AmeriDx® Human MSLN ELISA Kit (Item No E30142009 )
Human Mesothelin is normally expressed on mesothelial cells lining the pleura, pericardium, peritoneum, and in the serum. However, the function of Mesothelin is not known. It is a potentially useful biomarker for certain cancers, particularly mesotheliomas, ovarian adeno- carcinomas, pancreatic adenocarcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas, and lung cancers. As such, it has become the focus of cancer research.
America Diagnostics’ AmeriDx® Human Mesothelin Antigen ELISA Kit is a Sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay. A human Mesothelin specific mouse monoclonal antibody is first coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are then added to the wells. The Mesothelin binds to the immobilized capture antibody. Next, a biotinylated mouse monoclonal anti-human Mesothelin detection antibody is added, producing an antibody-antigen-antibody “sandwich”.
Avidin-horseradish peroxidase (Avidin-HRP) is subsequently added, followed by the addition of ELISA Substrate Solution, producing a blue color. The blue color intensity is proportional to the concentration of Mesothelin present in the sample. Finally, the addition of Stop solution changes the reaction color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbance is read at 450 nm and 650 nm with a microplate reader.
