Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a peroxidase enzyme which is expressed in neutrophils and macrophages. MPO is a 150 kD dimeric protein which consists of two 15 kD light chains and two variable weight glycosylated heavy chains bound to a prosthetic heme group. Three isoforms have been identified, differing in the size of the heavy chain. Mature human MPO shares 88% amino acid sequence identity with dog, mouse, and rat. Human MPO also shares 71%, 56%, and 47% amino acid sequence identity with comparable regions of human eosinophil peroxidase, lactoperoxidase, and thyroid peroxidase, respectively.
MPO is released extracellularly, and it has been detected in a wide range of acute and chronic inflammatory conditions. Serum levels of myeloperoxidase (MPO) are associated with coronary artery disease and indicate a risk factor for pancreatic cancer.
The LEGEND MAX™ Human Myeloperoxidase ELISA kit is a Sandwich Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) is a 96-well strip plate, pre-coated with a monoclonal capture antibody. This kit is specifically designed for the accurate quantitation of human MPO from cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma, saliva, urine and other biological fluids. This kit is analytically validated with ready-to-use reagents.

- For some of your ELISA kits, why do my serum samples require dilution with assay buffer?
Dilution with assay buffer is required to minimize the matrix difference between the samples and the standards to achieve better accuracy.
- I have multiple LEGEND MAX™ ELISA kits that I want to run simultaneously. Can I use the same wash buffer for all the kits?
The Wash buffer is the same for all the current LEGEND MAX™ kits. All the part numbers on the Wash Buffer bottles in these kits should be the same. For ELISA MAX™ Deluxe and ELISA MAX™ Standard sets, we provide a recipe for the wash buffer on each kit’s technical data sheet. This recipe is the same for all ELISA MAX™ sets.
- In your LEGEND MAX™ ELISA Kits, there is a step that calls for a washing of the plates before even adding any sample to it. What is the purpose of this step?
We typically use a stabilizer for pre-coated plates. The washings were designed to remove these components before you start the assay. If you do not do the washings, the effect on assay performance is negligible.
