Rats are used to make rat monoclonal anti mouse antibodies. There are less rat- than mouse clones however. Rats genes from rodents of the genus Rattus norvegicus are often studied in vivo as a model of human genes in Sprague-Dawley or Wistar rats.

How the elisa works

Sample the amount of 100ul/well of the standard solution at 4000pg/ml, 2000pg/ml,1000pg/ml, 500pg/ml, 250pg/ml, 125pg/ml, 62.5pg/ml rat RANK standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffers into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of rat cell culture supernatant or serum to the ELISA plate. Keep in mind that each rat RANK standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.

ELISA kit description

GENTAUR's rat RANK ELISA test is a ready to use ELISA kit. We use a monoclonal from mouse specific for RANK was used as capure antibodies on the ELISA test plate. The internal standards (NSO, Q30-P213) and your samples are measured with a biotin conjugated polyclonal from goat specific for RANK will than be washed with PBS. The colour reaction with TMB on HRP will colour the well from blue to yellow with the stop solution. The more rat RANK in your sample the higher the ELISA signal will be compared to this elisa's standard curve.

More gene info

Receptor Activator of Nuclear Factor κ B (RANK), also known as TRANCE Receptor, is a type I membrane protein that is expressed on the surface of osteoclasts and is involved in their activation upon ligand binding. RANK is a recently described TNF receptor family member, and its ligand, RANKL, promote survival of dendritic cells and differentiation of osteoclasts. RANK contains 383 amino acids in its intracellular domain(residues 234-616), which contain three putative TRAF-binding domains(termed I, II, and III). RANK interacts with various TRAFs through distinct motifs and activates NF-kappaB via a novel TRAF6 interaction motif, which then activates NIK, thus leading to NF-kappaB activation, whereas RANK most likely activates JNK through a TRAF2-interacting region in RANK. The standard in this kit is recombinant human RANK with the sequence of Q29-G213 aa. It is a dipolymer which compose of two chains, and the molecular weight of each is 48kda.
