Assay Principle
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 Lp-PLA2 in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

The human Lp-PLA2 ELISA Kit is engineered for accurate measurement of human Lp-PLA2 levels from samples including serum, plasma, cell culture supernates, or tissue homogenates. It uses the Sandwich-ELISA mechanism in combination with the enzyme-substrate chromogenic reaction to measure the Lp-PLA2 content in the sample. The color intensity is positively correlated with Lp-PLA2 content in the sample. This kit has been validated against standards of sensitivity, specificity, precision, linearity, recovery, and lot-to-lot consistency.

Lp-PLA2, also called PLA2G7, is secreted in many inflammatory cells such as macrophages exerting both anti-inflammatory and pro-inflammatory roles. Lp-PLA2 is primarily associated with low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and with high-density lipoprotein (HDL) in a small amounts. Lp-PLA2 catalyzes hydrolysis of the acetyl group at sn-2 position of PAF to generate lyso-PAF and acetate. It also cleaves oxidatively modified positions of apoB100-containing lipoproteins into oxidized nonesterified fatty acids (oxFFAs) and lysophosphatidylcholine. It can act as an imflammatory biomarker for evaluating risk factors linked to cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Higher plasma concentrations of Lp-PLA2 activity has been demonstrate tofurther enhance the risk of cardiovascular events, such as myocardial infraction and ischemic stroke.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Lipoprotein-associated calcium-independent phospholipase A2 involved in phospholipid catabolism during inflammatory and oxidative stress response. At the lipid-aqueous interface, hydrolyzes the ester bond of fatty acyl group attached at sn-2 position of phospholipids (phospholipase A2 activity). Specifically targets phospholipids with a short-chain fatty acyl group at sn-2 position. Can hydrolyze phospholipids with long fatty acyl chains, only if they carry oxidized functional groups. Hydrolyzes and inactivates platelet-activating factor (PAF, 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine), a potent proinflammatory signaling lipid that acts through PTAFR on various innate immune cells. Hydrolyzes oxidatively truncated phospholipids carrying an aldehyde group at omega position, preventing their accumulation in low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles and uncontrolled proinflammatory effects. As part of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles, can hydrolyze phospholipids having long-chain fatty acyl hydroperoxides at sn-2 position and protect against potential accumulation of these oxylipins in the vascular wall. Catalyzes the release from membrane phospholipids of F2-isoprostanes, lipid biomarkers of cellular oxidative damage.
