Product Description

α-Klotho (Alpha Klotho) was identified as an extremely down-regulated gene in the genetically-modified mouse of which phenotype is very similar to various symptoms of human aging. The sequences of Alpha Klotho genes have been identified in various species including humans based on the one of mouse. Alpha Klotho protein is a 130 kDa, one-transmembrane protein and its expression is confirmed in the kidneys and the parathyroid glands. In recent years, it has become clear that Alpha Klotho is an important molecule within a living organism regulating the metabolism of mineral such as calcium and phosphorus. It is considered that in Alpha Klotho mouse, early aging-like symptoms are induced by impaired mineral homeostasis caused by decreased expression of Alpha Klotho. Meanwhile, it is reported that the long N-terminal extracellular domain which comprises the major portion of sequence of Alpha Klotho protein is released free into blood by shedding. However, there are many unclear points about functions and changes in concentration of free (soluble) Alpha Klotho protein, so it was required to develop the measurement system of Alpha Klotho. This ELISA kit can measure Human soluble Alpha Klotho protein in human blood.

FAQ

  • Question
    Q.Can this kit measure the full length of α-Klotho?
  • Answer
    A.Yes, it can be used to measure the full length α-Klotho and KL1.
  • Question
    Q.What are the epitopes of pre-coated antibody (Anti-human Klotho (67G3) Mouse IgG MoAb A.P.) and HRP conjugated antibody (Human Klotho (91F1) Mouse IgG MoAb Fab’ A.P.)?
  • Answer
    A.Klotho has two domains (KL1 and KL2). Although we have not conducted epitope mapping, these antibodies can detect KL1 domains.
  • Question
    Q.Can rodent (mouse or rat) sample be used for this kit?
  • Answer
    A.No, it cannot.
  • Question
    Q.Is any sample stability data available?
  • Answer
    A.Yes, it is available on the following relevant product page. Please refer to the Pamphlet 2 listed on the page.

  • Question
    Q.What kind of plasma sample can be used?
  • Answer
    A.Typical data of the performance of the kit were obtained using human serum, EDTA-plasma, urine and cell culture supernatant for this kit, however, as you can see the data of heparin-plasma and citrated plasma measured by this kit displayed on this product page, they can be also measured by this kit.
  • Question
    Q.What is pM unit of standards?
  • Answer
    A.The 6,000pg/mL of standard in this kit corresponds to 55pM (as Molecular Weight 108.99kDa). Please refer to the article Establishment of sandwich ELISA for soluble alpha-Klothomeasurement: Age-dependent change of soluble alpha-Klotho levels in healthy subjects YYamazaki et al. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2010 July 30; 398(3): 513–518 (PMID 20599764 / https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=20599764 ) for further information of development of this kit.
  • Question
    Q.Is composition of EIA buffer of each ELISA kit all same? Can it be mixed to use?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.No it isn't. As constitute of each EIA buffer is different, it cannot be mixed with other lots or EIA buffers contained in other kind of ELISA kits.
  • Question
    Q.What is the composition of concentrated wash buffer?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It contains ordinary Tween and phosphate buffer (0.05% Tween-20 in PB).
  • Question
    Q.What is the feature of the plate?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.We use plate that is flat bottom and removable strip type plate (8wellx 12 strips).
  • Question
    Q.Can I re-use standard after reconstitution?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.Not recommended to re-use standard after reconstitution. Please use it at once after the reconstitution.
    Please note that there are some exceptions. One time freeze-thaw the standard is acceptable for use after reconstitution for some ELISAs.
    Please check the details on each product datasheet.
  • Question
    Q.What is different between reagent blank and test sample blank?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.Reagent blank means a well is only added EIA buffer and the purpose is confirming whether the measuring value is influenced by lack of washing process. Test sample blank means a well is added EIA buffer and HRP antibody and the purpose is to calculate the background.
  • Question
    Q.How many samples can be measured by this kit?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.The pre-coated plate contained in our ELISA kit is 96 wells plate. We recommend to use 16 wells (2 slits) for standard and 80 wells (10 slits) for 40 samples in duplicate.
  • Question
    Q.What is LOD (Limit of Detection)?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It (LOD) is defined as sensitivity that is calculated using the NCCSL method. Please refer to a datasheet of each product.
  • Question
    Q.What is LOQ (Limit of Quantification)?
    ELISA common FAQ
  • Answer
    A.It (LOQ) is the lowest value of measurement (standard) range. Please refer to a datasheet of each product.
