antigen/source: Vitellogenin
catalog info: 2008 Japanes Assay kit Catalog-p839
Storage: -70C
Immunogen: Killifish
Reacts with: Killifish
Measurement Range: 40 - 640 ng / mL
Purpose: Vitellogenin (Vg), a precursor of yolk protein, is a female-specific protein that is expressed only in the blood of higher vertebrate oviparous organisms. Vg is normally expressed in liver under regulation of estrogen (female sex hormome) during egg yolk
component: 1. Antibody-coated microtiter plate (8 wells x 12) 1 plate
2. The standard, Medaka Vg (64 ng / mL- ) 300 uL X 2
3. Dilution solution 30 mL X 2
4. Biotin conjugated Anti-medaka Vg antibody (X100) 80 uL X 1
5. HRP-conjugated streptavidin (X500) 20 uL X


 Applicable sample 
Killifish(Medaka) liver
Dynamic range : 40 - 640 ng / mL
In recent years the influence of Endocrin-Disrupting-Chemicals (EDC) upon living organisms has been one of the hot topics in environmental study. However, determination of the chemical compound species that have EDC-like influence has not yet been completed, and it is absolutely necessary to take actions to complete such a task.
This kit is based on the ELISA method which is used with specific anti- medaka polyclonal antibody. Anti- medaka polyclonal antibody is coated on the microplate, so that Vg in the sample and standard is captured. After reacting biotin-conjugated anti-medaka polyclonal antibody and HRP-conjugated streptavidin, the complex of ''coated-antibody - antigen - antibody'' is formed. Finally, you could measure the Vg concentration depend on the coloring strength which has developed with enzymatic reaction.
