NGAL (lipocalin-2) is a lipocalin family protein that plays important roles in innate immunity, inflammation, and atherosclerosis. It was originally identified as a 25 kD protein covalently bound to gelatinase from human neutrophils. NGAL is a critical component of innate immunity because of its ability to bind iron-siderophore complexes and limit bacterial growth. It is also produced by injured epithelia and is one of the most promising markers for renal epithelial injury and cardiovascular disease (CVD).

Storage & Handling
The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. Do not freeze.

ELISA Detection - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA. For ELISA detection applications, a concentration of 0.15 µg/mL is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of NGAL recombinant protein ranging from 2500 to 39.1 pg/mL is recommended for each ELISA plate.

It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance.

Application Notes

ELISA Detection: The biotinylated M049D6 antibody is useful as a detection antibody for a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with purified M0415B7 (Cat. No. 661902) antibody as the capture antibody.


Note: For testing human NGAL in cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma, urine, saliva, and other biological fluids, BioLegend's LEGEND MAX™ Kits (Cat. No. 443407 & 443408) are specially developed and recommended.
