Mouse GIP active ELISA kit is a procedure intended for detecting in vitro quantitative levels of mouse active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP active) using plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.5 pg/ml.
Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is derived from a 153 amino proprotein that belongs to the secretin family. It has a major role in the stimulation of insulin secretion, however, it is also a weak inhibitor of gastric acid secretion and this helps to protect small intestines from stomach acid damage. Recently, there is evidence to indicate that GIP may be a vital player in bone remodelling, it was discovered that mice which had GIP receptor production disrupted resulted in profound alteration of bone microarchitecture. There are reports to suggest absence of GIP receptors display’s a correlation to resistance to obesity in knockout mice studies.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of gastric inhibitory polypeptide (active form GIP) using current mouse GIP active ELISA kit was approximately 1.5 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 7.8 – 500.0 pg/ml.
