Description

PTX3 is part of the pentraxin family which is characterized by a cyclic multimeric structure. Penatraxins are acute phase proteins that act as pattern recognition receptors. PTX3 is a long pentraxin containing a C terminal domain similar to other members of the pentraxin family and a unique N terminal domain. Inflammatory signals stimulate PTX3 production by a variety of cells including mononuclear phagocytes, dendritic cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells.

Serum levels of PTX3 increase rapidly in response to a variety of inflammatory and infectious conditions including endotoxic shock and sepsis. PTX3 has been proposed as an early diagnostic marker for septic shock. PTX3 can activate the classical complement pathway, aiding in pathogen recognition by macrophages and dendritic cells. PTX3 is also believed to play an important role in protection against autoimmunity by enhancing complement-mediated clearing of apoptotic cells and restricting cross presentation. Current research has also indicated that PTX3 is involved in initiating the process of tissue repair and plays a role in female fertility. PTX3 is believed to be involved in cancer-related inflammation and high PTX3 levels have been correlated with clinical stage and severity for various cancers.

Application

ELISA Capture - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For ELISA Capture applications, a concentration range of 2.0 - 8.0 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of PTX3 recombinant protein ranging from 6000 to 93.75 pg/mL is recommended for each ELISA plate. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

The pure MNB5 (Cat. No. 537902) antibody is useful as the capture antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the biotinylated MNB4 antibody (Cat. No. 538004) as the detection antibody and Recombinant Human PTX3 (ELISA Std.) (Cat. No. 786109).
