Assay Principle

The PM20D1 assay is a quantitative sandwich ELISA. The microplate is pre-coated with a polyclonal antibody specific for human PM20D1. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and any human PM20D1 present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After washing away any unbound substances, a horseradish peroxidase biotin-labelled polyclonal antibody specific for human PM20D1 is added to the wells. After wash step to remove any unbound reagents, streptavidin-HRP conjugate (STP-HRP) is added. After the last wash step, an HRP-substrate solution is added and color develops in proportion to the amount of human PM20D1 bound initially. The assay is stopped and the optical density of the wells determined using a microplate reader. Since the increases in absorbance are directly proportional to the amount of captured human PM20D1, the unknown sample concentration can be interpolated from a reference curve included in each assay.

Additional Information

Assay Background

PM20D1 is a bidirectional N-fatty-acyl amino acid synthase/hydrolase that regulates the production of N-fatty-acyl amino acids. These metabolites are endogenous chemical uncouplers of mitochondrial respiration. In an UCP1-independent manner, maybe through interaction with mitochondrial transporters, they promote proton leakage into the mitochondrial matrix. PM20D1 may indirectly regulate the bodily dissipation of chemical energy as heat through thermogenic respiration.
