Background of Pentraxin 2/SAP
Amyloid P component, serum (SAP), also known as PTX2 or APCS, is the identical serum form of amyloid P component (AP), a 25kDa pentameric protein first identified as the pentagonal constituent of in vivo pathological deposits called "amyloid". It belongs to the pentraxins family, characterised by calcium dependent ligand binding and distinctive flattened beta-jellyroll structure similar to that of the legume lectins. This gene is mapped to 1q23.2. The binding of the encoded protein to proteins in the pathological amyloid cross-beta fold suggests its possible role as a chaperone. This protein is also thought to control the degradation of chromatin. It has been demonstrated that this protein binds to apoptotic cells at an early stage, which raises the possibility that it is involved in dealing with apoptotic cells in vivo.

Recommended Sample Dilution Ratios
According to our internal validation assays using this ELISA kit, to detect Pentraxin 2/SAP, Dilution ratio of 1:50000, concentration in serum is around 30ug/ml.
Intra Assay Consistency & Inter Assay Consistency
We measured random samples of Rat SAP/PTX2/APCS 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.
|Intra-Assay Precision||Inter-Assay Precision|
We ensure reproducibility by testing three samples with differing concentrations of Pentraxin 2/SAP in ELISA kits from four different production batches/lots.
