Technical Data
Quinolinic acid, Conjugated
Quinolinic acid is a metabolite of tryptophan with a possible role in neurodegenerative disorders. Elevated CSF levels of quinolinic acid are correlated with the severity of neuropsychological deficits in patients who have AIDS.

Applications: Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:2000-1:5000 using quinolinic acid adsorbed to BSA, antibody specificity was performed with an ELISA test by competition experiments.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
