Pertussis toxin (PT) is a 105 kDa hexamer which adopts a classical AB5 structure, it is also crucial in the process of colonisation within the respiratory tract and play an important role in the establishment of infections. PT can have a direct effect of the innate immune response by inhibiting neutrophil chemotaxis activity and affecting the early formation of chemokines. There is evidence to suggest pertussis toxin can be useful therapeutic tool in the treatment of a wide variety of human ailments.
Human Bordetella pertussis toxin-IgM ELISA kit is a method designed for detecting quantitative and semi-quantitative amounts of IgM-class antibodies to Bordetella pertussis toxin in serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit to a diagn. 94.0%.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Bordetella pertussis toxin IgM using this human Bordetella pertussis toxin-IgM ELISA kit was to a diagn. 94.0%. The dynamic assay range for this kit was to a cut-off point.
