sandwich ELISA for quantification of phosphorylated IκBα (S32/S36)
FunctionELISA™ Kits offer a rapid, simple method to monitor changes in signal pathway proteins. They use the Sandwich ELISA technique to capture and quantifiably measure the amount of a specific protein present in a sample. FunctionELISA Kits come ready-to-use, with the Capture Antibody already bound to the plate, saving you the time and inconvenience of performing overnight incubations. For complete details, click the Method tab below.
FunctionELISA IκBα provides Capture Antibody that is specific for the phosphorylated form of IκBα, making the kit useful in monitoring the activation of NFκB and the many genes it regulates. It utilizes highly sensitive chemiluminescent detection, so requires the use of a luminometer. Click the IκBα Info tab below for data and more information.

FunctionELISA IκBα uses Capture Antibody specific for phosphorylated IκBα at serines 32,36 and highly sensitive chemiluminescent detection to enable accurate study of the phosphorylation state of IκBα in response to external stimuli (Figure 1). This FunctionELISA Kit requires the use of a luminometer.

NFκB is regulated by the IκB family of inhibitory proteins. Phosphorylation of IκBα can be triggered by a wide range of extracellular signals, including cytokines and chemokines. It leads, ultimately, to activation of NFκB. Thus, analysis of the phosphorylation state of IκBα provides insights about NFκB and the many genes it regulates. (For additional tools for the study of NFκB, see TransAM® NFκB p50, p52, p65 and Family Kits and NFκB-related antibodies).
FunctionELISA Kits utilize the Sandwich ELISA technique to capture and quantifiably measure the amount of a specific protein present in a sample. Sandwich ELISAs use two antibodies that recognize different epitopes on the protein being studied. The first antibody is immobilized in the wells of an ELISA plate. When cell lysate is added, the specific protein of interest is bound by this Capture Antibody. A second antibody, called the Detecting Antibody, is then added. It binds to the bound protein. The FunctionELISA IκBα and TRAIL Kits use a horseradish peroxidase (HRP) or alkaline phosphatase (AP) conjugated secondary antibody, respectively, that binds to the Detecting Antibody to quantify the amount of protein bound by the Capture Antibody (Figure 1).
