Background of TWEAK/TNFSF12

Tumor necrosis factor ligand superfamily member 12 also known as TNF-related weak inducer of apoptosis (TWEAK) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TNFSF12 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a cytokine that belongs to the tumor necrosis factor (TNF) ligand family. This protein is a ligand for the FN14/TWEAKR receptor. This cytokine has overlapping signaling functions with TNF, but displays a much wider tissue distribution. This cytokine can induce apoptosis via multiple pathways of cell death in a cell type-specific manner. This cytokine is also found to promote proliferation and migration of endothelial cells, and thus acts as a regulator ofangiogenesis. The TNFSF12 gene lies 878 bp upstream of the putative transcriptional start site of the TNFSF13 gene on chromosome 17p13.1.

7 Customer Q&As for Rat TNFSF12/Tweak ELISA Kit PicoKine®

Question

Q: how long can samples (cell cultures, serum, and plasma) be stored and still be stable for quantification TWEAK using the EK1177 Rat TWEAK Picokine® ELISA Kit?

P. Anderson

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-12-23

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 priority basis collection when possible, or aliquot into single use volumes and store samples frozen. avoid repetitive freeze-thaw cycles with the stored samples to prevent protein degradation.

Question

Q: how much samples can be assayed in a Picokine® ELISA Kit?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-10-13

Answer

A: The Picokine® ELISA Kits will generally run a 7-point standard curve, non-specific binding wells, and 39 samples in duplicate. this may might differ by kit so please refer to each datasheet for details.

Question

Q: how can I thaw whole blood sample for TWEAK ELISA after freezing?

M. Lopez

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-02-06

Answer

A: we do not recommend freezing and thaw whole blood. erythrocytes are fragile and, if frozen and thawed, will undergo hemolysis rendering the samples useless. To keep your blood samples to test TWEAK for a later time, you should let the blood clot in glass tubes and separate the serum to freeze for later analysis.

Question

Q: if the enzyme conjugated TWEAK antibodies are mixed with the substrate, will that convert the substrate into the enzymatic reaction product? Or the enzyme function is only activated when the antibody is attached with the TWEAK antigen?

K. Davis

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-05-02

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

K. Jha

Verified customer

Asked: 2016-12-18

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 suitable 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 assessd 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 see 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: can you suggest the dilution ratio of serum samples for detection of TWEAK in Rat cell lysates? I am trying to measure a few analytes and it requires 100ul of diluted samples for each well. We have limited sample volumes so we like to dilute as much as possible.

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2014-03-22

Answer

A: having little idea about 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 TWEAK 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.
