AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in buffer, cell culture media, serum and plasma in a highly sensitive, quantitative, reproducible and user-friendly mode. In an AlphaLISA assay, a Biotinylated Anti-Analyte Antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated Alpha Donor beads, while another Anti-Analyte Antibody is conjugated to AlphaLISA Acceptor beads. In the presence of the analyte, the beads come into close proximity. The excitation of the Donor beads provokes the release of singlet oxygen molecules that triggers a cascade of energy transfer in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
Fibronectin is a large glycoprotein of the extracellular matrix that exists in two forms: insoluble (cellular) and as a soluble plasma protein. The primary functions of fibronectin are its involvement in cell adhesion, growth, migration, and differentiation. Fibronectin is known to contribute to the wound healing process where it will accumulate at the site of injury to help form blood clots and aid in the development of new tissues. Fibronectin levels in serum and plasma have been identified to increase significantly after major traumas. Further, Fibronectin levels have been observed to be significantly altered in disease states of certain types of cancer and also diabetes mellitus. This AlphaLISA kit has been designed to detect and quantify Human Fibronectin in human serum and cell culture supernatants.
