Background of Gas6

GAS6 (Growth arrest-specific 6), also known as AXLLG or AXSF, is a human gene coding for the Gas6 protein. It is mapped to 13q34. GAS6 was originally found as a gene upregulated by growth arrested fibroblasts. This gene product is a gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla)-containing protein which thought to be involved in the stimulation of cell proliferation, and may play a role in thrombosis. What's more, the product of the GAS6 gene, a ligand for the AXL, MER, and TYRO3 tyrosine kinase receptors, is a vitamin K-dependent protein, structurally related to anticoagulant protein S but lacking its anticoagulant activity. This protein also shows great importance in the cardiovascular system.

Question

Q: What is the optimal O.D. value for GAS6 ELISA kit? I used your GAS6 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. is it safe to say these samples contain GAS6 even though the O.D. values are not very high?

R. Walker

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-11-10

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. regarding your protocol, 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 proportion to your positive controls. normally, 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 GAS6 ELISA kit to have sensitivity of 10pg/ml, that means the minimum amount of GAS6 that can be declared/interpreted as positive by the above standard is 10pg/ml.

Question

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

M. Wilson

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-08-16

Answer

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

Question

Q: can I use citrate plasma as samples in Rat GAS6 Picokine® ELISA Kit (Catalog # EK1915)?

M. Nelson

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-04-28

Answer

A: Chelating agents such as EDTA, Heparin and Citrate can sequester metal ions from the functional domain of GAS6 causing degradation of its protein structure. GAS6 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 GAS6 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.

Question

Q: how long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for measurement GAS6 using the EK1915 Rat GAS6 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

M. Edwards

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-03-25

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not assess 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. avoid repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to limit protein degradation.

Question

Q: Can GAS6 ELISA Kits be used with tissue homogenates (or other non-validated sample types)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-02-05

Answer

A: Unfortunately, Boster Bio has not routinely validated tissue homogenates as a sample type for ELISA kits. This does not mean that ELISA kits are not valid for other sample types than we have tested: it means further investigation is needed. One will need to perform a spike and recovery study to determine if an unvalidated sample type will work with a particular kit. To perform a spike and recovery experiment, one should divide a sample into two aliquots. In one of the aliquots, the user should spike in a known amount of the kit standard. a dilution series is performed comparing the spiked versus the unspiked sample. Generally, samples with expected recovery and linearity between 80-120% are considered acceptable. This method can be used to validate any sample type that has not been evaluated by Boster Bio. for a more detailed spike and recovery protocol, please contact technical support.
Note: acceptable ranges should be determined individually by each laboratory. Additionally, technical support can help determine if a buffer component is not compatible with a given ELISA kit. please check the Citations tab on the product webpage for peer-reviewed papers utilizing a wide range of sample types. We also have an innovator's reward program where if the user validates our ELISA kits in applications or samples previously not validated by Boster Bio or other users, and share such information with us by submit a review, we will reward the user's efforts with a free antibody or ELISA kit from our catalog. Biocompare.com will also give $20 Amazon giftcard as an additional reward, if the review is submitted there as well.

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated GAS6 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 GAS6 antigen?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-10-26

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.
