Alternative Name: IA-A; Indolylacetic Acid; Indoleacetic Acid; Heteroauxin
Assay Type: Competitive Inhibition
This assay employs the competitive inhibition enzyme immunoassay technique. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with Indole 3 Acetic Acid(IAA) protein. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells then with a biotin-conjugated antibody specific to Indole 3 Acetic Acid(IAA). Next,Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After TMB substrate solution is added. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ? 10nm. The concentration of Indole 3 Acetic Acid(IAA) in the samples is then determined by comparing the OD of the samples to the standard curve.
