The ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] ELISA research use only kit is designed to detect and quantify the level of ERK2 protein phosphorylated at threonine residue 185 and tyrosine187 and ERK1 at threonine 202 and tyrosine 204. This assay is intended for the detection of ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] from human cell lysates using 96-well plates and a microplate reader.

Easy to run
More sensitive than westerns
Convenient precoated, removable 8-well strips

Easy-to-Run Sandwich ELISA
The total assay incubation time is only 4 hours. A monoclonal capture antibody specific for ERK1/2 has been coated onto the wells of the 96-well plate provided. During the first incubation, standards of known ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] content and unknown samples are pipetted into the wells and the ERK1/2 antigen binds to the immobilized (capture) antibody. After washing, a rabbit antibody specific for ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] is added to the wells. During the second incubation, this antibody serves as a detection antibody by binding to the immobilized ERK1/2 protein captured during the first incubation. After washing, a horseradish peroxidase–labeled anti–rabbit IgG is added. This binds to the detection antibody to complete the four–member sandwich. After a third incubation and washing to remove all the unbound enzyme, a substrate solution (TMB) is added, which is acted upon by the bound enzyme to produce color. The intensity of this colored product is directly proportional to the concentration of ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] present in the original specimen and the optical density can be read on a standard microplate reader.

Detect Low-Expressing Proteins and Use Less Sample
ELISA kits designed to measure intracellular signaling targets are 2–10 times more sensitive than western blotting. The improved sensitivity enables you to detect low-expressing proteins that otherwise may not be distinguishable from background. In addition, the amount of sample needed to run the assay is less than what is needed for western blots.

Ready-to-Use ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] ELISA Kit Contains These Reagents, Buffers, and Supplies:
• ERK1/2 Antibody Coated 96-Well Plate
• ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] Standard
• Standard Diluent Buffer
• ERK1/2 [pTpY185/187] Detection Antibody
• Anti-Rabbit IgG-HRP (100X)
• HRP Diluent
• Wash Buffer Concentrate (25X)
• Stabilized Chromogen, TMB
• Stop Solution
• Plate Covers
• Detailed protocol with validation tests

Convenient Kit Format
The kit comes with a capture antibody precoated to the plate, eliminating an overnight coating process. The plates are machine coated to provide low variability well-to-well. Furthermore, the plate comes as removable 8-well strips allowing you to run as few samples as you want. In addition, the standards provided in the kit can be used to get quantitative results off the standard curve and/or can be used as a positive control.

Rigorous Validation
Each ELISA kit is validated for sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See protocol insert for more information on validation.
