*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.

|Protein Function||Iron-trafficking protein involved in multiple processes such as apoptosis, innate immunity and renal development. Binds iron through association with 2,5-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2,5- DHBA), a siderophore that shares structural similarities with bacterial enterobactin, and delivers or removes iron from the cell, depending on the context. Iron-bound form (holo-24p3) is internalized following binding to the SLC22A17 (24p3R) receptor, leading to release of iron and subsequent increase of intracellular iron concentration. In contrast, association of the iron-free form (apo-24p3) with the SLC22A17 (24p3R) receptor is followed by association with an intracellular siderophore, iron chelation and iron transfer to the extracellular medium, thereby reducing intracellular iron concentration. Involved in apoptosis due to interleukin-3 (IL3) deprivation: iron-loaded form increases intracellular iron concentration without promoting apoptosis, while iron-free form decreases intracellular iron levels, inducing expression of the proapoptotic protein BCL2L11/BIM, resulting in apoptosis. Involved in innate immunity, possibly by sequestrating iron, leading to limit bacterial growth (By similarity). .|

|Background||Lipocalin-2(LCN2), also known as NGAL, is a protein associated with neutrophil gelatinase.1 The LCN2 gene is located at 9q34 and contains 7 exons.2 The 25-kD LCN2 protein is believed to bind small lipophilic substances such as bacteria-derived lipopolysaccharide(LPS) and formylpeptides and may function as a modulator of inflammation. NGAL tightly binds bacterial catecholate-type ferric siderophores through a cyclically permuted, hybrid electrostatic/cation-pi interaction and is a potent bacteriostatic agent in iron-limiting conditions.3 The primary LCN2 transcript is 3,696 nucleotides long, and the processed transcript is 809 nucleotides long.4 LCN2 expression in adult bone marrow, uterus, prostate, salivary gland, stomach, appendix, colon, trachea, and lung, and in fetal spleen and lung. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant rat NGAL, consisting of 177 amino acids with the molecular mass of 21kDa.|

Guaranteed product quality
We promise all of our products perform as described in datasheets.
• Add tissue homogenates into the wells and then add ABC and TMB without adding any biotinylated detection antibody to see if any signal will be observed.
• If no signal is produced, then you can work on the tissue sample by using the kit.
The 1XTBS can be used if the pH value falls in the range of 7.2-7.6.
