|Product name||Mouse Pyridinoline (PYD) ELISA Kit|
|Applications notes||This Mouse Pyridinoline (PYD) ELISA Kit employs a two-site sandwich ELISA to quantitate PYD in samples. An antibody specific for PYD has been pre-coated onto a microplate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and anyPYD present is bound by the immobilized antibody. After removing any unbound substances, a biotin-conjugated antibody specific for PYD is added to the wells. After washing, Streptavidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Following a wash to remove any unbound avidin-enzyme reagent, a substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of PYD bound in the initial step. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.|

|Usage notes||• Do not mix components from different kit lots or use reagents beyond the kit expiration date.
• Allow all reagents to warm to room temperature for at least 30 minutes before opening.
• Pre-rinse the pipet tip with reagent, use fresh pipet tips for each sample, standard and reagent to avoid contamination.
• Unused wells must be kept desiccated at 4 °C in the sealed bag provided.
• Mix Thoroughly is very important for the result. It is recommended using low frequency oscillator or slight hand shaking every 10 minutes.
• It is recommended that all samples and standards be assayed in duplicate or triplicate.
|Storage instructions||The unopened kit should be stored at 2 - 8°C. After opening, please store refer to protocols.|

|Background||Pyridinoline is a crosslink compound isolated from bovine Achilles tendon collagen. It is a 3-hydroxypyridinium derivative with three amino and three carboxyl groups. The pyridinoline content of bovine Achilles tendon was 0.16 residue per 1,000 residues and that of rat Achilles tendon collagen was 0.017 residue per 1,000 residues. Besides Achilles tendon collagens, pyridinoline was found in collagens from coastal cartilage, rib and femoral bone of rat. It was not found in collagens from the tail tendon and skin of rat. A crosslinked, triple-chained peptide containing pyridinoline was isolated from bovine Achilles tendon collagen after digestion with pronase. Its amino acid composition suggests that the peptide may be involved in an intermolecular crosslink among a carboxyterminal sequence, a sequence near the aminoterminus and a sequence in the helical region.|
