Background of TrkC

Tropomyosin receptor kinase C  (TrkC), also known as NT-3 growth factor receptor, neurotrophic tyrosine kinase receptor type 3, or TrkC tyrosine kinase is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NTRK3 gene.This gene encodes a member of the neurotrophic tyrosine receptor kinase (NTRK) family. This kinase is a membrane-bound receptor that, upon neurotrophin binding, phosphorylates itself and members of the MAPK pathway. Signalling through this kinase leads to cell differentiation and may play a role in the development of proprioceptive neurons that sense body position. Mutations in this gene have been associated with medulloblastomas, secretory breast carcinomas and other cancers. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

8 Customer Q&As for Human TRKC ELISA Kit PicoKine®

Question

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

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-12-16

Answer

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.

Question

Q: how are cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-13

Answer

A: in those Picokine® ELISAs where cell or tissue lysate is a validated sample type, sample preparation instructions for lysate are included in the product insert. Components in lysate and lysis buffer can have an affect on immunoreactivity, so if lysate is not a validated sample type, care must be taken in sample preparation and validation.

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for TrkC ELISA kit? I used your TrkC ELISA on serum samples. For my positive control, I received an O.D. value of 0.826, while my negative control received a value of 0.136. I obtained both of these controls from the ELISA kit, where your kit's typical data shows O.D. values much higher than my positive control and your background is lower. My samples O.D. values are around 0.225 and the highest is only 0.357. can I consider these samples contain TrkC even though the O.D. values are not very high?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-19

Answer

A: The absolute O.D. values may change according to incubation time. The more you incubate the higher the O.D. values are going to be. what you should focus on is whether your sample O.D. values are statistically significantly higher than your blank values. considering your assay, you could extend your development time in the substrate incubation step to obtain higher O.D. values, as long as your negative controls' O.D. values are not increasing faster in relation to your positive controls. typically, a sample with O.D. value 2 standard deviations higher than your negative controls can be considered positive. We calculate the sensitivity of this ELISA kit by converting cutoff O.D. value, calculated as the average of 20 negative controls plus 2 standard deviations of the 20 negative controls, into a concentration. in other words, when we claim this TrkC ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 10pg/ml , that means the minimum amount of TrkC that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 10pg/ml .

Question

Q: we need your recommendation regarding the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of TrkC in Human plasma? I am trying to measure a few parameters and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have low serum volumes so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-06-08

Answer

A: without having an understanding the physiological or pathological context of your samples we cannot recommend a dilution ratio without performing a pilot test with your samples. Here is how you can perform a pilot study on your own: perform a serial dilution of your samples on the TrkC ELISA kit to make sure you have a linear ascending curve followed by a plateau, which signifies the samples saturating the detection limit of the kit. Then you can pick the dilution ratios from samples in the linear part of the curve as your experimental dilution ratio.
If you are interested in using our ELISA service, you can also send us your sample and we will take care of everything for you. You can check our service details here: bosterbio.com/services/assay-services/ELISA-testing-service
Since you mentioned you have limited samples, our cost effective multiplex ELISA service would fit perfectly for your needs, where we can generate dozens of data points using as little as 25ul sample volume. Information on this service is also in the above link.

Question

Q: can I use citrate plasma as samples in Human TrkC Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK1676)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-15

Answer

A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can attach metal ions from the functional domain of TrkC causing degradation of its protein structure. TrkC may be denatured as a result and may compromise the assay's measurements. The chilating sites could also be too close to the epitopes required for detection and block the antigen antibody reaction. We have tested the TrkC ELISA, treating samples with various anticoagulants and decided that heparin or EDTA can be used for treatment of blood/plasma samples. Do not use other anticoagulents when collecting samples.

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-01-23

Answer

A: although the vials are bottled using aseptic techniques, heat-treated vials, and sterile stock solutions, they are not considered or guaranteed to be sterile. If sterile material is required for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.

Asked: 2014-01-19

Answer

A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may vary slightly by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.
