The ProQuantum Human IL-12p40 Immunoassay Kit is designed to provide highly sensitive quantitative measurements of human IL-12p40 protein in small sample volumes. Utilizing proximity ligation assay (PLA) technology, the assay combines the analyte specificity of high-affinity antibody-antigen binding with the signal detection and amplification capabilities of real-time PCR to achieve a simple yet powerful next-generation protein quantitation platform. A user-friendly workflow combined with intuitive Cloud-based software for analytics enables sample-to-answer in just 2 hours.
• High sensitivity—detect low levels of protein with greater sensitivity than traditional methods
• Broad dynamic range—≥5 logarithmic units, minimizing sample dilutions to ensure they fall within the range
• Small sample consumption—use 2–5 µL of sample (compared to 75 µL for triplicate wells with other methods)
• Fast, easy workflow—2 hours from sample to answer, with no wash steps
• No proprietary instrument to purchase—runs on any real-time PCR instrument
ProQuantum immunoassays utilize a matched pair of target-specific antibodies, each conjugated to a DNA oligonucleotide. During antibody-analyte binding, the two DNA oligos are brought into close proximity, which allows for ligation of the two strands and subsequent creation of a template strand for amplification. This platform leverages the sensitivity and large dynamic range of Applied Biosystems TaqMan real-time PCR technology (Figure 1).
The assay workflow is fast and easy—2 steps in 2 hours. There are a total of 7 components in each kit (Figure 2). First, mix the antibody-conjugates, dilute the sample, and create the standard curve in a working plate. Then, using a multi-channel pipette, add the antibody-conjugates and sample (or standard) into the wells of a PCR plate and incubate for 1 hour. Combine the master mix and ligase and add to the wells of the PCR plate, then run the plate on any qPCR instrument. After the run is complete, import the results file into the ProQuantum cloud-based software at https://apps.thermofisher.com/apps/proquantum. Using this software, the data can be analyzed easily to obtain protein concentration values. The software allows you to set up standard curves, design plate layouts, set up customized assay instructions, and obtain robust statistical group-wise comparisons.
IL12B (IL-12 p40) encodes a subunit of interleukin 12, a cytokine that acts on T and natural killer cells, and has a broad array of biological activities. Interleukin 12 is a disulfide-linked heterodimer composed of the 40 kDa cytokine receptor like subunit encoded by this gene, and a 35 kDa subunit encoded by IL12A. This cytokine is expressed by activated macrophages that serve as an essential inducer of Th1 cells development. This cytokine has been found to be important for sustaining a sufficient number of memory/effector Th1 cells to mediate long-term protection to an intracellular pathogen. Overexpression of this gene was observed in the central nervous system of patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), suggesting a role of this cytokine in the pathogenesis of the disease. The promoter polymorphism of this gene has been reported to be associated with the severity of atopic and non-atopic asthma in children.
