Test Principle of the IDK® Kynurenine ELISA High Sensitive

The IDK® Kynurenine ELISA High Sensitive is based on the method of competitive enzyme-linked immunoassays. The sample preparation includes the addition of a derivatization reagent for L-kynurenine derivatization. Afterward, the treated samples and a polyclonal L-kynurenine-antiserum are incubated in the wells of a microtiter plate coated with L-kynurenine-derivative (tracer).

During the first incubation period, the target L-kynurenine in the sample competes with the tracer, immobilized on the wall of the microtiter wells, to bind the polyclonal antibodies. The L-kynurenine in the sample displaces the antibodies out of the binding to the tracer.

During the second incubation step, a peroxidase-conjugated antibody is added to each microtiter well to detect the anti-kynurenine antibodies. After washing away the unbound components, tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) is added as a peroxidase substrate. Finally, the enzymatic reaction is terminated by an acidic stop solution. The color changes from blue to yellow, and the absorbance is measured in a photometer at 450 nm. The intensity of the yellow color is inversely proportional to the L-kynurenine concentration in the sample. This means a high L-kynurenine concentration in the sample reduces the concentration of tracer-bound antibodies and lowers the photometric signal.

A dose-response curve of the absorbance unit (optical density, OD at 450 nm) vs. concentration is generated using the values obtained from the standards. The presence of L-kynurenine in the samples is determined directly from this curve.
