Pertussis toxin (PT) is a hexamer protein which is 105 kDa and it forms a typical AB5 architecture. PT is found to interfere with early production of chemokine and inhibit neutrophil chemotaxis by directly affecting the innate immune response (it inhibits the recruitment of both neutrophils and macrophages). It is vital in the colonisation of respiratory tract and in establishing infection. Recent research is indicating a possible therapeutic role in treating a number of human ailments.
Human Bordetella pertussis toxin-IgG ELISA kit can be used for analysing in-vitro quantitative amounts of human IgG antibodies against Bordetella pertussis using samples of serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.43 IU/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Bordetella pertussis toxin IgG using this human Bordetella pertussis toxin-IgG ELISA kit was 0.43 IU/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 25.0 – 150.0 IU/ml.
