The Quantikine Human Mesothelin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human Mesothelin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human Mesothelin and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human Mesothelin showed linear curves that were parallel to the s...tandard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring Mesothelin.

Alternate Names for Human Mesothelin Quantikine ELISA Kit
megakaryocyte potentiating factor
soluble MPF mesothelin related protein
Mesothelin, also known as CAK1 and ERC, is derived from a precursor that also includes Megakaryocyte Potentiating Factor (MPF). Following cleavage of the precursor, Mesothelin remains attached to the cell surface via a GPI linkage. Mesothelin is normally expressed on mesothelial cells in the pleura, pericardium, and peritoneum as well as in the developing and postnatal pancreas. It is upregulated in mesotheliomas and a range of carcinomas and adenomas. Mesothelin promotes tumor cell proliferation, migration, anchorage-independent growth, and tumor progression.
