PD-1:PD-L1 Homogeneous Assay Kit

Description: The PD-1:PD-L1 Homogeneous Assay Kit is designed to measure the inhibition of PD-1 binding to PD-L1. With this kit, only three simple steps on a microtiter plate are required. First, a sample containing PD-1 and an inhibitor of choice is incubated with
Synonym(s): Programmed cell death 1, PDCD1, PD-1, PD1, SLEB2, CD279, HPD-L, Programmed Cell Death 1 Ligand 1,CD274 and B7 homolog 1 (B7-H1), PDCD1 ligand 1, programmed death ligand 1, PDCD1L1
Supplied As: The PD-1:PD-L1 Homogeneous Assay Kit comes in a convenient AlphaLISA
Contraindications: Only limited amounts of DMSO can be included, as it has been shown to disrupt PD-1-PD-L1 interaction. Avoid green and blue dyes that absorb light in the AlphaScreen signal emission range (520-620 nm), such as Trypan Blue. Avoid the use of the potent singlet oxygen quenchers such as sodium azide (NaN3) or metal ions (Fe2+, Fe3+, Cu2+, Zn2+ and Ni2+). The presence of >1% RPMI 1640 culture medium leads to a signal reduction due to the presence of excess biotin and iron in this medium. MEM, which lacks these components, does not affect AlphaScreen assays.
Instructions for use: See product datasheet for detailed assay protocol.
Storage / Stability: At least one year from date of receipt when stored as directed.
Application(s): Useful for screening for inhibitors of PD-1 binding to PD-L1
