Procollagen Type I C-peptide (PIP), also known as Procollagen I Carboxy Terminal Propeptide (PICP), is an enzymatically cleaved product of pro-collagen type I. Cleavage of PIP is required for the initiation of fibril formation. PIP has been used as an indicator of the synthesis of type I collagen. PIP is a trimeric, globular protein consisting of three polypeptide chains, two proα1 (I) and one proα2 (I) chains with molecular mass of PIP of 100 KD. The levels of PIP in biological samples is directly associated with numerous pathological states including bone, liver, heart diseases. The present kit is designed to detect hPIP in human serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants, cell lysate, and tissue homogenates.
AlphaLISA technology allows the detection of molecules of interest in a no-wash, highly sensitive, quantitative assay. In an AlphaLISA assay, a biotinylated anti-analyte antibody binds to the Streptavidin-coated 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 causes 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.
