Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human UCN2 in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Target Data

Function Suppresses food intake, delays gastric emptying and decreases heat-induced edema. Might represent an endogenous ligand for maintaining homeostasis after stress.

  9. UCNII caused cell death via different membrane-disrupting mechanisms that involve aggregation & membrane depolarization in bacteria and pore formation in Leishmania even inside macrophages. Innate immune cells produce UCNII in response to infections. PMID: 24249730

  11. study showed that Ucn2 and Ucn3 differentially regulate the LPS-induced TNF-alpha and IL-10 expression and secretion in trophoblast explants acting through CRH-R2. Ucn2 is proinflammatory. PMID: 22000474
  12. These data suggest a possible involvement of urocortin 2 and Ucn 3 in the mechanisms of endometriosis. PMID: 21454316
  13. Confirm the anti-inflammatory function of VIP, through the modulation of the expression of CRF system that impacts in a reduction of mediators with inflammatory/destructive functions. PMID: 21360527
  14. Unlike urocortin-1 levels, higher levels of urocortin 2 are not associated with worse left ventricular diastolic performance in patients with chronic systolic heart failure. PMID: 20670842
  15. Urocortin 2 may play a role in the regulation of estradiol production throughout pregnancy, thereby contributing to the placental regulation of key reproductive events in pregnancy maintenance and parturition. PMID: 19417223
  16. Placental Ucn2 and Ucn3 expression is sensitive to O(2) tensions and mediated by HIF-1alpha. In preeclampsia, the increased expression of both peptides may reflect a response to the oxidative stress. PMID: 20616367

  18. data suggest a distinctive role for corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 specific agonists like urocortin II in the control of myometrial contractility during human pregnancy PMID: 14592950
  19. data indicate that intracisternal Ucn 2 induced a central CRF(2)-mediated inhibition of gastric emptying involving sympathetic alpha(1)-adrenergic mechanisms independent from the vagus contrasting with the vagal-dependent inhibitory actions of CRF & Ucn 1 PMID: 16223946
  20. the 38 amino acid urocortin 2 peptide is the minimal pharmacophore PMID: 16476507
