The Quantikine Mouse/Rat Cystatin C Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure mouse and rat Cystatin C in cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant mouse Cystatin C and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to quantitate the recombinant factor accurately. Results obt...ained using natural mouse or rat Cystatin C showed dose-response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the recombinant kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural mouse and rat Cystatin C.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.

Alternate Names for Mouse/Rat Cystatin C Quantikine ELISA Kit
bA218C14.4 (cystatin C)
cystatin C (amyloid angiopathy and cerebral hemorrhage)
Neuroendocrine basic polypeptide
Cystatin C is a secreted cysteine protease inhibitor that inhibits Cathepsins B, H, K, L, and S. Cystatin C serum concentration correlates closely to the glomerular filtration rate (GFR); elevated levels are associated with coronary artery and cardiovascular disease risk. Dysregulation of Cystatin C can modulate tumor growth and metastasis. In humans, the L68Q variant forms dimers and oligomers more easily than wild type protein and is the cause for hereditary Cystatin C amyloid angiopathy.
