The LANCE® Ultra Human PD-L1 Detection Kit is designed for detection and quantitation of human PD-L1 in buffered solution and cell culture media using a homogeneous TR-FRET (no-wash steps, no separation steps) assay.
LANCE® and LANCE® (Lanthanide chelate excite) Ultra are our TR-FRET (time-resolved fluorescence resonance energy transfer), homogeneous (no wash) technologies. One antibody of interest is labeled with a donor fluorophore (a LANCE Europium chelate) and the second molecule is labeled with an acceptor fluorophore (ULight™ dye). Upon excitation at 320 or 340 nm, energy can be transferred from the donor Europium chelate to the acceptor fluorophore if sufficiently close for FRET (~10 nm). This results in the emission of light at 665 nm.
Programmed death ligand 1 (PDL-1), also known as cluster of differentiation 274 (CD274) or B7 homolog1 (B7-H1) belongs to the growing B7 family of immune proteins and has been demonstrated to play a role in the regulation of immune responses and peripheral tolerance. Human PDL-1 is constitutively expressed in several organs such as heart, skeletal muscle, placenta and lung, and in lower amounts in thymus, spleen, kidney and liver. PDL-1, together with PDL-2, are two ligands for PD-1 (programmed death 1), a member of the CD28 family of immunoreceptors. By binding to PD-1 on activated T-cells and B-cells, PDL-1 may inhibit ongoing T-cell responses by inducing apoptosis and arresting cellcycle progression. Accordingly, it leads to growth of immunogenic tumor growth by increasing apoptosis of antigen specific T cells and may contribute to immune evasion by cancers. PDL-1 thus is regarded as promising therapeutic target for human autoimmune disease and malignant cancers.

The introduction of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs) in the early 1970’s offered researchers a non-radiometric immunoassay platform without compromising sensitivity. Over the last 50 years scientists have made huge strides in disease research and drug discovery and a demand for greater assay throughput and sensitivity has evolved. In response, more robust immunoassays have been developed to address some of the limitations of the standard, colorimetric ELISA.
Find out about the most common limitations of traditional ELISAs and how different ELISA alternative technologies address these limitations.
Immuno-oncology is an exciting area within cancer research and among the most promising approaches to activating therapeutic antitumor immunity is through the blockade of immune checkpoints. The programmed cell death-1 (PD-1) immune checkpoint pathway is a negative regulator of T cell immune function. When PD-1 is bound to programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1), T cell response is suppressed. Many tumor cells escape anti-tumor immunity through their expression of Programmed Death Ligand 1 (PD-L1 or B7-H1), which interacts with T cell-expressed PD-1 and results in T cell apoptosis. PD-L1 expression has been studied in multiple different cancers. While several anti-PD-1 or PD-L1 monoclonal antibodies that block the PD-1/ PD-L1 complex formation have been developed to date, there remains a need for more robust, rapid, high-throughput assays to identify and qualify novel inhibitors of PD-1/PD-L1 binding and assays to detect expression levels of both binding partners. Find out how LANCE® Ultra Technology provides a fast, powerful, homogeneous platform for identifying and characterizing endogenous PD-L1 and PD-1 expression in human cells.
