ELISA kit for Rat Protein max (MAX)
Quantitative sandwich ELISA for measuring Rat Protein max (MAX) in samples from cell culture supernatants, serum, whole blood, plasma and other biological fluids.
MAX is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHZ) family of transcription factors. It is able to form homodimers and heterodimers with other family members, which include Mad, Mxi1 and Myc. Myc is an oncoprotein implicated in cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. The homodimers and heterodimers compete for a common DNA target site (the E box) and rearrangement among these dimer forms provides a complex system of transcriptional regulation. Unlike MYC, the steady state level of MAX RNA was not significantly modulated with respect to proliferation or differentiation. Unlike MYC RNA, MAX RNA was relatively stable with a half-life of more than 3 hours, and therefore it did not exhibit the characteristic short half-life of RNAs encoded by most immediate early genes.
All of the components are shipped on ice packs/blue ice. Upon receiving the kit keep it at +4 degrees Celsius for up to 1 year (refer to the label on the box for the exact expiration date).
