Background of Stanniocalcin 2/STC-2

Stanniocalcin-2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the STC2 gene. It is mapped to 10q12. This gene encodes a secreted, homodimeric glycoprotein that is expressed in a wide variety of tissues and may have autocrine or paracrine functions. The encoded protein has 10 of its 15 cysteine residues conserved among stanniocalcin family members and is phosphorylated by casein kinase 2 exclusively on its serine residues. Its C-terminus contains a cluster of histidine residues which may interact with metal ions. The protein may play a role in the regulation of renal and intestinal calcium and phosphate transport, cell metabolism, or cellular calcium/phosphate homeostasis. Constitutive overexpression of human stanniocalcin 2 in mice resulted in pre- and postnatal growth restriction, reduced bone and skeletal muscle growth, and organomegaly. Expression of this gene is induced by estrogen and altered in some breast cancers. STC2 has opposite effects on calcium and phosphate homeostasis as compared to Stc1.

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated Stanniocalcin 2 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 Stanniocalcin 2 antigen?

Z. Bhatt

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-10-17

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 long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for quantification Stanniocalcin 2 using the EK1995 Rat Stanniocalcin 2 Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-09-24

Answer

A: Boster Bio does not evaluate sample stability. Variations in sample collection, processing, and storage may change the stabilityof samples. It is recommend to assay sample immediately after collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. limit repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to avoid protein degradation.

Question

Q: can you suggest the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of Stanniocalcin 2 in Rat serum? I am trying to measure a few parameters and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have low serum quantitys so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-03-15

Answer

A: unable to understand 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 Stanniocalcin 2 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: what is the protocol regarding preparation of cell lysates prepared for use in Picokine® ELISA kits?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2017-01-13

Answer

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

Question

Q: Are Boster Bio recombinant proteins and antibodies sterile?

T. Roberts

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-11-19

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 a must for an experiment, the material can be filtered through a 0.2 micron filter designed for use with biological fluids.
