The Human TIM-1 (HAVCR1) ELISA quantitates Hu TIM-1 in human serum, plasma, or cell culture medium. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant Hu TIM-1. Principle of the method The Human TIM-1 solid-phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is designed to measure the amount of the target bound between a matched antibody pair. A target-specific antibody has been pre-coated in the wells of the supplied microplate. Samples, standards, or controls are then added into these wells and bind to the immobilized (capture) antibody. The sandwich is formed by the addition of the second (detector) antibody, a substrate solution is added that reacts with the enzyme-antibody-target complex to produce measurable signal. The intensity of this signal is directly proportional to the concentration of target present in the original specimen. Rigorous validation Each manufactured lot of this ELISA kit is quality tested for criteria such as sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See manual for more information on validation.HAVCR1, a 359 A.A Class 1 integral membrane glycoprotein, is used by Hepatitis A virus to infect humans. It consists of a conserved N-terminal Cys-rich region, IgV (Immunoglobulin Variable region like) domain and a TSP-rich mucin domain in the extracellular region followed by a highly conserved tyrosine kinase phosphorylation motif in the cytoplasmic region. HAVCR1 is expressed on terminally differentiated CD4+ Th2 cells and regulates cytokine production. It plays an important role in the regulation of immune responses in the development of asthma and allergic responses. Its expression is critically upregulated in dedifferentiated kidney cells, thus indicating a possible role in regeneration of proximal tubule epithelium in Kidneys. HAVCR1 has shown to be upregulated in renal carcinomas, suggesting its role in tumor progression and metastasis.
