Background of MICA

MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MICA gene.1 The MICA gene encodes a 383-amino acid polypeptide with a predicted mass of 43 kD.The MICA and MICB genes occur in a 200-kb region spanning the TNFA and TNFB cluster at 6p21.3.2 MICA and the closely related MICB were recognized by intestinal epithelial T cells expressing diverse V-delta-1 gamma/delta TCRs.3 The MICA protein product is expressed on the cell surface, although unlike canonical class I molecules does not seem to associate with beta-2-microglobulin. It is further distinguished by its unusual exon-intron organization and preferential expression in fibroblasts and epithelial cells. It is thought that MICA functions as a stress-induced antigen that is broadly recognized by NK cells, NKT cells, and most of the subtypes of T cells. MICA and other members of this family may have been selected for specialized functions that are either ancient or derived from those of typical MHC class I genes, in analogy to some of the nonclassic mouse H-2 genes.

Intra Assay Consistency & Inter Assay Consistency

We measured random samples of Human MICA ELISA Kit PicoKine® within the same batch/lot to ensure the consistency of the kits' performances. ELISA intra assay consistency is measured using wells from the same plate/assay kit. ELISA inter assay consistency is measured using wells from different plates from the same batch production/lot.

Q: how long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for analysis MICA using the EK0812 Human MICA Picokine® ELISA Kit?

H. Varadkar

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-01-05


A: Boster Bio does not evaluate sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may alter the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample on-stat collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. limit repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to avoid protein degradation.

Boster Scientific Support

Answered: 2018-01-05


Q: if the enzyme conjugated MICA antibodies are mixed with the substrate, will that convert the substrate into the enzymatic reaction product? Or the enzyme function is only activated when the antibody is attached with the MICA antigen?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-03-06


A: The enzyme is always active. Avoid contaminating the substrate with enzyme prior to the incubation otherwise it compromises the assay with false positive signal.
