Neural cell surface protein F3
Uniprot Function Description
Contactins mediate cell surface interactions during nervous system development. Involved in the formation of paranodal axo-glial junctions in myelinated peripheral nerves and in the signaling between axons and myelinating glial cells via its association with CNTNAP1. Participates in oligodendrocytes generation by acting as a ligand of NOTCH1. Its association with NOTCH1 promotes NOTCH1 activation through the released notch intracellular domain (NICD) and subsequent translocation to the nucleus. Interaction with TNR induces a repulsion of neurons and an inhibition of neurite outgrowth.
Recommended sample types are plasma and serum. A range of additional sample types are compatible with the technology (PEA), including citrate plasma, heparin plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, (CSF), tissue and cell lysates, fine needle biopsies, microdialysis fluid, cell culture media, dried blood spots, synovial fluid, saliva, plaque extract and microvesicles. Please note that protein expression levels are expected to vary between different sample types. Certain assays are differentially affected by interfering substances such as hemolysate.

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from quantified data (pg/mL) within the limits of quantification: LOQ.
Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)

Analytical measuring range
The technical data reported below refers to the measured values generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens. Per default, Olink Target 48 products deliver data in absolute protein concentrations (pg/mL) using the Calibrator built into the system.
The calibrator curve shown below visualizes the analytical measuring range determined during the validation process using recombinant antigen. Please note that this is shown for reference only and CANNOT be used to e.g. convert NPX values to absolute concentrations. The vertical dotted lines represent lower limit of quantification (LLOQ) and upper limit of quantification (ULOQ) respectively. The solid horizontal line indicates the limit of detection (LOD).
