Human 17 beta estradiol E2 ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring 17-beta estradiol E2 (17β-estradiol E2, 17 beta estradiol E2) in human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 2.0 pg/ml.
17-beta-estradiol (E2) is produced predominately by the placenta or the ovary, with smaller amounts made in the testes or the adrenals and testes or the adrenals. It has a molecular weight of 272.4 Da and is a C18 steroid hormone which is in equilibrium with estrone and it can be converted to estriol by the liver or the placenta. 17-β-Estradiol E2 is essentially defined as a steroid hormone which plays important functions in many different types of organs. For, example E2 has a fundamental role in synaptic plasticity, neurogenesis and neuroprotection. There are a number of clinical applications where the determination of E2 levels has been particularly useful. These include the measurement of estradiol levels in peritoneal fluid, serum and follicular fluid as a vital biochemical tool that is routinely used for investigating sexual diseases, tumors, fertility and disorders of hypothalamic/pituitary/gonadal axis.
