Mouse angiotensinogen intact ELISA kit is designed for analysing quantitative amounts of intact angiotensinogen in mouse serum, plasma and cell culture supernatant samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.01 ng/ml.
Angiotensinogen (AGT) is an a-2-globulin protein which is a member of the serpin family, it is released from the liver into the blood where it can be cleaved to generate angiotensin. An important component of the renin-angiotensin system that is essential in regulating blood pressure and fluid balance. Increasing the levels of thyroid hormone, estrogen, angiontensin II and corticosteroid can result in elevating the plasma concentration of angiotensinogen. AGT has been linked to pre-eclampsia, neonatal and foetal mortality, morbidity, predisposition to hypertension and many heterogeneous disorders.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of intact angiotensinogen using this mouse angiotensinogen intact ELISA kit was approximately 0.01 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 0.16 – 10.0 ng/ml.
