|Cite This Product||Mouse GDNF PicoKine™ ELISA Kit (Boster Biological Technology, Pleasanton CA, USA, Catalog # EK0935)|
*Our Boster Guarantee covers the use of this product in the above tested applications.
**For positive and negative control design, consult "Tissue specificity" under Protein Target Info.
|Immunogen||Expression system for standard: sf21; Immunogen sequence: S78-I211|
|Cross Reactivity||There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.|
|Pack Size||96wells/kit, with removable strips.|
*Sensitivity, or Lower Limit of Detection (LLD), is the minimum level of target protein the ELISA assay can detect. We measure 20 blank wells and if the O.D. value is 2 standard deviations higher than the blanks' average O.D. the sample can be deemed positive.
*This assay range is determined using common samples. For samples with low target protein concentrations, users can adjust the standard curve to extend the lower limit of assay range.
|Sample Type||cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
*The above listed samples are the ones valided with the assay. If you do not see your sample of interest listed, as long as there is enough level of target protein present in the sample, this Picokine™ ELISA kit should detect it.
**For protocol and tips regarding preparing your sample of interest, please check our ELISA sample preparation guide.

You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.
|Protein Name||Glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor|
|Molecular Weight||23662 MW|
|Protein Function||Neurotrophic factor that enhances survival and morphological differentiation of dopaminergic neurons and increases their high-affinity dopamine uptake.|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in both the central nervous system (CNS) and in non-CNS tissues. Expressed in a highly dynamic pattern in the anterior neuroectoderm during the early stages of neurogenesis between E7.5 and E10.5. Beginning at E10.5, expression begins in mesenchymal tissues of several organs including the digestive tract, kidney, testis, frontonasal mass, tooth primordium, tongue, mandible, whisker follicles, ear, eye, limb bud and in distinct regions of the brain. Also expressed in the heart, ileum, liver and muscle. .|

Typical Data Obtained from Mouse GDNF PicoKine™ ELISA Kit
(TMB reaction incubate at 37°C for 25-30min)
*The typical data is obtained from Boster's internal QC result and for reference only. It may differ from the lab test results of the end users. It is more important that the user's lab test results reflect the same linearity demonstrated in the typical data than achieving exactly the same O.D. values.

"Easy to Use GDNF ELISA Kit"
--Hannah Oakes, EAST TENNESSEE STATE UNIVERSITY, BIOMEDICAL SCIENCES, GRADUATE ASSISTANT
Applications Detecting GDNF Sample Brain Tissue (Hippocampus) Detection --
"We used this kit and the BDNF kit, because we were looking at neurogenesis within the hippocampus. We used the ELISA to complement our immunohistochemistry. It was easy to optimize the kits and the instructions were extremely easy to follow. Additionally, the instructions do not include using samples from tissue homogenates, but we did and the plates came out great. This product was selected after speaking with a representative about it at a conference. I am extremely glad we decided to go with this kit. This is a great kit. The protocol was easy to follow and optimize. We will be using these kits again."
