CNTF (Human) ELISA Kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of human CNTF.
Limit of Detection:
Quality Control Testing:
The standard curve is for the purpose of illustration only and should not be used to calculate unknowns. A standard curve should be generated each time the assay is performed. Column A represents Assay Diluent A and column B represents Assay Diluent B.
Store the kit at -20°C. Standard should be stored at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.
The protein encoded by this gene is a polypeptide hormone whose actions appear to be restricted to the nervous system where it promotes neurotransmitter synthesis and neurite outgrowth in certain neuronal populations. The protein is a potent survival factor for neurons and oligodendrocytes and may be relevant in reducing tissue destruction during inflammatory attacks. A mutation in this gene, which results in aberrant splicing, leads to ciliary neurotrophic factor deficiency, but this phenotype is not causally related to neurologic disease. A read-through transcript variant composed of ZFP91 and CNTF sequence has been identified, but it is thought to be non-coding. Read-through transcription of ZFP91 and CNTF has also been observed in mouse. [provided by RefSeq
