CaptureSelect™ KappaXP Affinity Matrix (Thermo Scientific™)

CaptureSelect KappaXP Affinity Matrix is an improved version of CaptureSelect KappaXL Affinity Matrix, specifically designed for higher binding capacity. The selectivity is the same: the ligand binds the constant domain of the human kappa light chain, but it features an increased binding capacity (up to 45 g IgG/L), and a wider elution range (full elution up to pH 6.0) compared to other affinity resins that bind the kappa light chain.

Features of this affinity matrix include:
• Single-step purification of Ig’s and Fab and Fab2 fragments directly from complex source materials
• Mild elution for Fab fragments and antibodies
• Human specific, with no binding to bovine antibodies
• Excellent scalability
• Non-animal-derived

The high selectivity and yield obtained using CaptureSelect KappaXP Affinity Matrix enables a robust and efficient purification process with excellent purity obtained in one step.

MCF7 (+hIGF-1) Control Lysate (1mg/mL) (Thermo Scientific™)

Thermo Scientific MCF7 (+hIGF-1) Control Lysate is a stimulated cell lysate that has been validated for the expression levels and phosphorylation of key targets in the AKT signaling pathway.

MCF7 (+hIGF-1) Control Lysate features include:
• Validated for the detection and phosphorylation of AKT, PTEN, IRS1, IGF1-R, GSK3a, GSK3b, PRAS40, mTOR, p70S6K, and TSC2 proteins
• Optimized—stimulation and lysis conditions optimized for detection of AKT signaling targets
• Convenient—lysate is ready-to-use for immunoprecipitation, immunoprecipitation to mass spectrometry, and western blotting applications
• Stable for two years at -80°C

The AKT signaling pathway serves as a master regulatory pathway for cell growth and proliferation, and phosphorylation plays a major role in its modulation. Aberrant activation of this pathway promotes survival of tumor cells in many types of cancer. This lysate has been validated for expression of ten key proteins and phosphorylation in the AKT signaling pathway (AKT, PTEN, IRS1, IGF1-R, GSK3a, GSK3b, PRAS40, mTOR, p70S6K, and TSC2).

The MCF-7 cell line is a human epithelial breast cancer cell line with estrogen, progesterone, and glucocorticoid receptor expression and is used as an in vitro model for breast cancer. The MCF7 (+hIGF-1) cell lysate is provided as frozen lysate at a standard concentration of 1 mg/mL (500 mg per vial). Lysates are prepared in non-denaturing buffer without loading dyes or dissociating agents (i.e., no 2-mercaptoethanol or dithiothreitol has been added). For western blot analysis, heat lysate to 95°C for 5 minutes. Add reducing agent before heating if desired. The recommended loading volume per lane is 10–20 μL (10–20 µg).

Pierce™ TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard (Thermo Scientific™)

The Thermo Scientific Pierce TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard is a lyophilized yeast peptide mixture of four congenic strains labeled with TMT11plex reagents to monitor LC-MS/MS system performance for Tandem Mass Tag (TMT) quantitation.

Pierce TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard features include:
Convenient—pre-labeled with TMT11plex reagents in a ready-to-use lyophilized format
Highly validated—yeast strains verified for genotype, equimolar mixing of the TMT-labeled strains, and overall protein quantitation using TMT
Diagnostic—excellent QC assay tool for quality assessment of LC and MS instrument status
Quantitative—designed to measure the quantitative precision of the TMT reporter ions for each of the 11 channels

Quantitative proteomic strategies using TMT reagents enable sample multiplexing and precise measurement of protein abundance. However, successful execution of this workflow includes multiple steps that may require optimization, including chromatography, mass spectrometry (MS), and data analysis. A critical parameter for success in this workflow is the ability to consistently detect the TMT fragment ions across the 11 channels of multiplexing. This standard has been specifically designed as a tool to monitor LC-MS/MS system performance for TMT quantitation and MS method optimization and validation.

The Pierce TMT11plex Yeast Digest Standard consists of four congenic strains of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (a parental line, BY4741, and three lines lacking the non-essential proteins Met6, His4, or Ura2) labeled in triplicate (knock-out strains) or duplicate (parental strain) with TMT11-plex label reagents (see figure). The knock-out strains are used in combination with the parental strain to enable comparison of peptide and protein abundance in the deleted and parental strains to monitor system performance for quantitation.

In addition to routine quality control assessment, the standard can also be used as a method development tool to measure the accuracy, precision, and dynamic range of different MS approaches, including optimization of offline fractionation, chromatography, MS acquisition, or data analysis settings.

The multifunctional applications for this standard will allow more reproducible TMT quantitation from day-to-day and experiment-to-experiment.

uPAR Human ProcartaPlex™ Simplex Kit (Invitrogen™)

The Human uPAR Simplex ProcartaPlex kit measures uPAR protein and is designed to be combinable with other Simplex kits so that you can create your own multiplex panel that utilizes Luminex xMAP technology for protein detection/quantitation. When combining multiple Simplex kits (i.e., when you are not using a pre-configured Multiplex Panel), only one buffer kit (sold separately) is needed for each assay plate regardless of plex size.

ProcartaPlex immunoassays are based on the principles of a sandwich ELISA, using two highly specific antibodies binding to different epitopes of one protein to quantitate up to 80 protein targets simultaneously when using the FLEXMAP 3D or Luminex 200 instrument and up to 50 protein targets when using the MAGPIX instrument. ProcartaPlex assays require as little as 25 µL of plasma or serum, or 50 µL of cell culture supernatant, and just four hours to obtain analyzed results.

Flexible panels—design your own panels with Simplex kits to measure your own array of targets
More results per sample—measure up to 80 protein targets in a single 25–50 µL sample
Well-established Luminex technology—the most referenced multiplexing platform for protein detection and quantitation

The Luminex MagPlex superparamagnetic microsphere beads in the ProcartaPlex assay are internally dyed with precise proportions of red and infrared fluorophores to create 100 spectrally unique signatures that can be identified by the Luminex xMAP detec¬tion systems (Luminex 200, FLEXMAP 3D, and MAGPIX systems). Similar to a sandwich ELISA, the ProcartaPlex assay uses matched antibody pairs to identify the protein of interest. In a ProcartaPlex multiplex assay, each spectrally unique bead is labeled with antibodies specific for a single target protein, and bound proteins are identified with biotinylated antibodies and streptavidin–R-phycoerythrin (RPE). The conjugation of protein-specific antibodies to a distinct bead allows for analysis of multiple targets in a single well.

The most significant difference between a ProcartaPlex assay and ELISA is that the capture antibody in the ProcartaPlex assay is conjugated to a magnetic bead and not adsorbed to the microplate well, so the ProcartaPlex assay reagents are free-floating in the solution. For detection, the Luminex 200 instrument, for example, contains two lasers, one to distinguish the spectral signature of each bead and the second to quantify the amount of RPE fluorescence, which is proportional to the amount of protein present in the sample. ProcartaPlex multiplex assays can profile up to 80 times more target proteins using significantly less sample in the same time that it takes to perform a traditional sandwich ELISA.

ProcartaPlex Simplex kits provide the ability to create your own unique panel . More than 90% of ProcartaPlex Simplex targets can be combined, providing you with superior flexibility when creating your own multiplex panel.

ProcartaPlex Simplex kits are available across six species (human, mouse, rat, nonhuman primate, porcine, and canine). Visit thermofisher.com/procartaplex for more information, including a comprehensive list of individual protein targets.

Suitable sample types: cell culture supernatant, serum, plasma
