Cytotoxic T lymphocyte associated gene -4 (CTLA-4) was initially described as a classical type I glycoprotein on the surface of activated T-cells. CTLA-4 is a member of the Ig gene superfamily and along with its homologue, CD28, is a B7 binding protein. There is evidence that CTLA-4 is a negative regulator of T-cell activation, ligation of CTLA-4 on the T-cell surface initiates a series of biochemical events that attenuate an ongoing immune response. CTLA-4 knock out mice demonstrate profound polyclonal lymphoproliferative disoders that infiltrate most major organ systems and the animals die a few weeks after birth. The animals have increased levels of IgG which illustrates the role of CTLA-4 on humoral immune responses as well. A role for CTLA-4 in autoimmune disease is suggested by the observations that blockade of B7/CTLA-4 interaction exacerbates animal models of autoimmune disease such as experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and diabetes.A search for genetic markers that segregate with Graves? disease revealed an association with CTLA-4 polymorphisms. CTLA-4 is further more closely linked to autoimmune thyroid disease (ATD). A native soluble form of CTLA-4 has been described to be present in human serum. A correlation of circulating CTLA-4 and ATD has been shown.

Sample TestedHuman lung cancer cell lines


Blocking DetailsThe exact protocol provided by Novus for this antibody kit was followed. No blocking details.

Primary Anitbody

Dilution RatioWe did not have to dilute our samples for ELISA. We only normalized the total protein to 20 ug.


Detection NotesThe plate was read at 450 nm using the Biotek Synergy 4 plate reader.
ELISA Plate DetailsThe kit contained a plate pre-coated with sCTLA-4 antibody
Wash Description400 uL of the provided wash buffer was used to wash wells. We would let it sit for 10 s before aspiration. Washed 4-5X.


CommentsMake sure to read the protocol at least once all the way through before starting the ELISA. It only takes about 4-5 hours total time. Also, our standard curve did not correlate well with the standard curve provided in the protocol book (Yes, a 40 page book that is very detailed), so don't be surprised if you standard curve is off too. Our standard curve provided an r squared value > 0.98, so everything turned out great. Really liked the kit and will use it again in the future.

FAQs for CTLA-4 ELISA Kit (NBP1-91268). (Showing 1 - 1 of 1 FAQs).

  1. Does this kit work with CTLA4Ig fusion protein? CTLA4Ig contains the extracellular domain of human CTLA4 and human IgG1 Fc. Do you know if any customers use this kit to check CTLA4Ig? sCTLA4 and CTLA4Ig have the same extracellular domain. If the two antibodies used in the ELISA kit are against the extracellular domain, it could be used to detect CTLA4Ig. Could you please tell me the epitopes of the two antibodies?
    • The standard protein in our human CTLA-4 is a soluble fusion protein consisting of the extracellular domain of human CTLA-4, fused to mouse IgG2a Fc. This means that our kit will detect your CTLA4Ig.
