Description

Background

Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9, also known as PCSK9, is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the PCSK9 gene. This gene encodes a proprotein convertase belonging to the proteinase K subfamily of the secretory subtilase family. By genomic sequence analysis, the PCSK9 gene was mapped to chromosome 1p32. This protein plays a major regulatory role in cholesterol homeostasis. PCSK9 binds to the epidermal growth factor-like repeat A(EGF-A) domain of the low-density lipoprotein receptor(LDLR), inducing LDLR degradation. Reduced LDLR levels result in decreased metabolism of low-density lipoproteins(LDL), which could lead to hypercholesterolemia. PCSK9 may also have a role in the differentiation of cortical neurons.

Application Note

Useful in Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Antigen. Aliquot 0.1ml per well of the 10,000pg/ml, 5000pg/ml, 2500pg/ml, 1250pg/ml, 625pg/ml, 312pg/ml, 156pg/ml human PCSK9 standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of human cell culture supernates, serum or plasma(heparin, EDTA) to each empty well. It is recommended that each human PCSK9 standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.

Purity/Specificity

Natural and recombinant human PCSK9. There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
