  5. 5. INTRODUCTION TO ELISA<br />ELISA, or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, is an immunoassay technique involving the reaction of antigen and antibody in vitro. ELISA is a sensitive and specific assay for the detection and quantitation of antigens or antibodies. ELISA tests are usually performed in microwell plates.<br />It is a sensitive immunoassay that uses an enzyme linked to an antibody or antigen as a marker for the detection of a specific protein.<br />11 May 2002<br />5<br />
  6. 6. HISTORY<br />It is first described by Peter Perlmannand Eva Engval , and Anton SchuursandBauke van Weemen.<br />The technique was subsequently developed by Voller and col. using microplates, that permitted the development of highly sensitive and accurate kits.<br />11 May 2002<br />6<br />
  7. 7. COMPONENTS OF AN ELISA<br />Antibody: IgG fraction of serum<br />Enzyme:Peroxidase from horseradish,Alkalinephosphatase from E. coli,β-galactosidase from E coli.,Glucoseoxidase.<br />Substrate: TMB (3,3',5,5', tetramethylbenzidine).<br />11 May 2002<br />7<br />
  8. 8. PRINCIPLE OF ELISA<br />The sample with an unknown amount of antigen is immobilized on a solid support.<br />The detection antibody is added ,forming a complex with antigen.<br />The detection antibody can be covalently linked to an enzyme, or can itself be detected by a secondary antibody which is linked to an enzyme.<br />Between each step the plate washed with a mild detergent solution.<br />After the final wash step, adding an enzymatic substrate to produce a visible signal, which indicates the quantity of antigen in the sample. <br />11 May 2002<br />8<br />
  9. 9. 8. Observe colour development<br />7. Add substrate for enzyme<br />1. Add antigen<br />2. Wash with PBST<br />6. Wash with PBST<br />4. Wash with PBST<br />3. Add primary antibody<br />5. Add secondary antibody<br />11 May 2002<br />9<br />

  11. 11. CRITERIA FOR CHOICE OF A MARKER ENZYME<br />Should be easily coupled to ligands & the labelled complex must be stable.<br />The reactivity should be retained after linking of the enzyme to the antigen/antibody.<br />The chosen enzymes should not be normally present in the patient samples.<br />11 May 2002<br />11<br />

  13. 13. INDIRECT ELISA<br />The indirect ELISA utilizes an unlabeled primary antibody in conjunction with a labeled secondary antibody. Since first the antigen is coated and specific antibody is added which forms complex.Then add enzyme-conjugated secondry antibody and add substrate and measure colour.<br />11 May 2002<br />13<br />
  14. 14. ADVANTAGES AND DISDVANTAGES<br />Advantages of indirect detection<br />Wide variety of labeled secondary antibodies are available commercially. <br />Sensitivity is increased because each primary antibody contains several sites that can be bound by the labeled secondary antibody, allowing for signal amplification. <br />Secondary-antibody conjugate avoids the expensive process of creating enzyme-linked antibodies for every antigen one might want to detect<br />Disadvantages of indirect detection<br />Cross-reactivity may occur with the secondary antibody, resulting in nonspecific signal. <br />An extra incubation step is required in the procedure. <br />11 May 2002<br />14<br />
  15. 15. SANDWICH ELISA<br />Plate is coated with a antibody.<br />Sample is added, and any antigen present binds to antibody.<br />Detecting antibody is added, and binds to antigen.<br />Enzyme-linked secondary antibody is added, and binds to detecting antibody.<br />Substrate is added, and is converted by enzyme to detectable form.<br />11 May 2002<br />15<br />
  16. 16. Competitive binding assay<br />Unlabeled antibody is incubated in the presence of its antigen. <br />These bound antibody/antigen complexes are then added to an antigen coated well. <br />The plate is washed, so that unbound antibody is removed. (The more antigen in the sample, the less antibody will be able to bind to the antigen in the well, hence "competition.") <br />The secondary antibody, specific to the primary antibody is added. This second antibody is coupled to the enzyme. <br />A substrate is added and check the colour change.<br />11 May 2002<br />16<br />
  17. 17. Advantages<br />The major advantage of a competitive ELISA is the ability to use crude or impure samples and still selectively bind any antigen that may be present.<br />11 May 2002<br />17<br />

  31. 31. NEUTRALIZATION<br />It is a serological test used to identify used to identify toxins and antitoxins as well as viruses and viral antibodies.<br />It involves antigen-antibody reaction.<br />Laboratory animals are used as “indicator systems” in these tests.<br />For example it is used to detect exotoxin of<br />Clostridium botulinumin food.<br />11 May 2002<br />25<br />
  32. 32. NEUTRALIZATION<br />Antitoxin is mixed with the food that contains toxins. Thus neutralization of toxin takes place.<br />If toxin is produced by some other organism <br /> no neutralization occurs and mixture is lethal to animal.<br />Schick test<br /><ul><li>The Schick test is used to determine if a person is immune to diphtheria (intradermal test)
  33. 33. In this test diphtheria toxin is injected intradermally.No skin reactions occurs if person has neutralizing antibodies. A local edema occurs if no neutralizing antibodies are present , indicating person is susceptible to diphtheria. </li></ul>11 May 2002<br />26<br />
  34. 34. Virus neutralization by specific antibodies<br />11 May 2002<br />27<br />
  35. 35. PRECIPITATION<br />The immunoprecipitation technique detects soluble antigens that react with antibodies called precipitins.<br />The antibodies link the antigen to form a large antibody-antigen network or lattice that settles out of solution at the equivalence zone when it becomes sufficiently large.<br />In fluids,antigen and antibody are layered over each other in a thin tube.The molecules then diffuse through the fluid untill they reach equivalence zone.A visible mass of particles is now formed at interface or at bottom.<br />11 May 2002<br />28<br />
  36. 36. IMMUNODIFFUSION<br />In immunodiffusion, antigens and antibodies diffuse through a semisolid gel until they reach the zone of equivalence.<br />TWO METHODS<br />1.Single diffusion(oudin) <br />2.Double diffusion(Ouchterlony plate technique)<br /><ul><li>Both reactants diffuse.
  37. 37. Antigen and antibody solutions are placed in wells cut into agar in petridishes.The plates are incubated and precipitation lines form at zone of equivalence.
