Rat adiponectin ELISA kit can be used for determining quantitative amounts of adiponectin in rat serum or plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of < 0.081 ng/ml.
Adiponectin (AdipoQ, Acrp30, apM1, GBP-28) functions as a hormone which is responsible for modulating a number of different processes such as glucose regulation and fatty acid oxidation. It is secreted into the bloodstream from adipose tissues and is regarded as one of the abundant proteins which is present in the plasma. Scientists have used rats and mice as model organisms to investigate basic research and to carry out a large number of pre-clinical studies. Also, they have used many different cell culture models and studies in human patients. Adiponectin is vital in suppressing metabolic derangements which can result in atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and obesity.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of adiponectin using current rat adiponectin ELISA kit was approximately 0.081 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 0.25 – 10.0 ng/ml.
