Product Summary for Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B Quantikine ELISA Kit

The Quantikine Human BAFF/BLyS Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human BAFF/BLyS in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human BAFF/BLyS and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human BAFF/BLyS showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human BAFF.

Recovery for Human BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B Quantikine ELISA Kit

The recovery of BAFF/BLyS spiked to three different levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
Cell Culture Media (n=4) 96 90-103
EDTA Plasma (n=4) 94 84-101
Heparin Plasma (n=4) 94 89-107
Serum (n=4) 93 84-106

Linearity

To assess the linearity of the assay, samples containing and/or spiked with high concentrations of BAFF/BLyS were serially diluted with Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Background: BAFF/BLyS/TNFSF13B

BAFF (B-cell activating factor), also known as BLyS, TALL-1, THANK, and TNFSF13B, is a TNF superfamily ligand that plays a critical role in the development and survival of B lineage cells. It can be expressed as a homotrimer or as a heteromer in association with the related protein APRIL. It is produced by many hematopoietic cell types, and a soluble form can be released by activated neutrophils. Both BAFF and APRIL signal through the receptors BCMA and TACI, and BAFF additionally signals through BAFF R. Mice that overexpress BAFF exhibit elevated B cell numbers, increased formation and size of germinal centers, and symptoms of autoimmunity. In addition, BAFF costimulates T cell activation, promotes a Th1 biased immune response, and promotes the expansion of Treg cells.
