Angiotensinogen Intact ELISA Kit (Mouse)

  • Created on the 31 October, 2017.

BACKGROUND

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.

INTENDED USE

Mouse intact angiotensinogen ELISA kit is designed for analysing quantitative amounts of angiotensinogen (intact) in mouse serum, plasma and cell culture supernatant samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.01 ng/ml.

SENSITIVITY

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of angiotensinogen (intact) using this mouse intact angiotensinogen ELISA kit was approximately 0.01 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 0.16 – 10.0 ng/ml.

TESTIMONIALS arrow icon

Your secretory IgA ELISA kit gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

L. Johnston

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

Lecturer / University College London (UCL)

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA kit performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA kits from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA kits. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
