ELISA Kit Technical ManualMSDS

Human STUB1(E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase CHIP)ELISA Kit 

This ELISA kit uses Sandwich-ELISA as the method. The micro ELISA plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to Human STUB1 . Standards or samples are added to the appropriate micro ELISA plate wells and combined with the specific antibody. Then a biotinylated detection antibody specific for Human STUB1 and Avidin-Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugate are added to each micro plate well successively and incubated. Free components are washed away. The substrate solution is added to each well. Only those wells that contain Human STUB1, biotinylated detection antibody and Avidin-HRP conjugate will appear blue in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by adding Stop Solution and the color turns yellow. The optical density (OD) is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450 nm ± 2 nm. The OD value is proportional to the concentration of Human STUB1. The concentration of Human STUB1 in samples can be calculated by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.

Typical Data

As the OD values of the standard curve may vary according to the conditions of the actual assay performance (e.g. operator, pipetting technique, washing technique or temperature effects), the operator should establish a standard curve for each test. Typical standard curve and data is provided below for reference only.

Human STUB1(E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase CHIP)ELISA Kit  (HUES03512) Assay procedure

    1. Set standard, test sample and control (zero) wells on the pre-coated plate and record theirpositions. It is recommended to measure each standard and sample in duplicate. Note: addall solutions to the bottom of the plate wells while avoiding contact with the well walls. Ensuresolutions do not foam when adding to the wells.
    2. Aliquot 100µl of standard solutions into the standard wells.
    3. Add 100µl of Sample / Standard dilution buffer into the control (zero) well.
    4. Add 100µl of properly diluted sample (serum, plasma, tissue homogenates and otherbiological fluids) into test sample wells.
    5. Cover the plate with the sealer provided in the kit and incubate for 90 min at 37°C.
    6. Aspirate the liquid from each well, do not wash. Immediately add 100µL of BiotinylatedDetection Ab working solution to each well. Cover the plate with a plate seal and gently mix.Incubate for 1 hour at 37°C.
    7. Aspirate or decant the solution from the plate and add 350µL of wash buffer to each welland incubate for 1-2 minutes at room temperature. Aspirate the solution from each well andclap the plate on absorbent filter paper to dry. Repeat this process 3 times. Note: a microplatewasher can be used in this step and other wash steps.
    8. Add 100µL of HRP Conjugate working solution to each well. Cover with a plate seal andincubate for 30 min at 37°C.
    9. Aspirate or decant the solution from each well. Repeat the wash process for five times asconducted in step 7.
    10. Add 90µL of Substrate Reagent to each well. Cover with a new plate seal and incubate forapproximately 15 min at 37°C. Protect the plate from light. Note: the reaction time can beshortened or extended according to the actual color change, but not by more than 30min.
    11. Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Note: Adding the stop solution should be done inthe same order as the substrate solution.
    12. Determine the optical density (OD value) of each well immediately with a microplate readerset at 450 nm.

Human STUB1(E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase CHIP)ELISA Kit  (HUES03512) Protein Information

UniProt Protein Function:CHIP: E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase which targets misfolded chaperone substrates towards proteasomal degradation. Collaborates with ATXN3 in the degradation of misfolded chaperone substrates: ATXN3 restricting the length of ubiquitin chain attached to STUB1/CHIP substrates and preventing further chain extension. Ubiquitinates NOS1 in concert with Hsp70 and Hsp40. Modulates the activity of several chaperone complexes, including Hsp70, Hsc70 and Hsp90. Mediates transfer of non-canonical short ubiquitin chains to HSPA8 that have no effect on HSPA8 degradation. Mediates polyubiquitination of DNA polymerase beta (POLB) at 'Lys-41', 'Lys-61' and 'Lys-81', thereby playing a role in base-excision repair: catalyzes polyubiquitination by amplifying the HUWE1/ARF- BP1-dependent monoubiquitination and leading to POLB-degradation by the proteasome. Mediates polyubiquitination of CYP3A4. Ubiquitinates EPHA2 and may regulate the receptor stability and activity through proteasomal degradation. Homodimer. Interacts with BAG2, and with the E2 ubiquitin conjugating enzymes UBE2D1, UBE2D2 and UBE2D3. Interacts with the C-terminal domains of HSPA8 and HSPA1A. Detected in a ternary complex containing STUB1, HSPA1A and HSPBP1. Interacts with MKKS. Interacts with DYX1C1 and POLB. Interacts (via TPR repeats) with HSP90AA1. Interacts (when monoubiquitinated) with ATXN3. Interacts with UBE2W. Interacts (via the U-box domain) with the UBE2V2- UBE2N heterodimer; the complex has a specific 'Lys-63'-linked polyubiquitination activity. Interacts with DNAJB6. Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, pancreas, brain and placenta. Detected in kidney, liver and lung. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.

NCBI Summary:This gene encodes a protein containing tetratricopeptide repeat and a U-box that functions as a ubiquitin ligase/cochaperone. The encoded protein binds to and ubiquitinates shock cognate 71 kDa protein (Hspa8) and DNA polymerase beta (Polb), among other targets. Mutations in this gene cause spinocerebellar ataxia, autosomal recessive 16. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. There is a pseudogene for this gene on chromosome 2.
