Rat GIP active ELISA kit is designed for quantitative analysis of rat active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP-active) using plasma-EDTA. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.43 pg/ml.
Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is a proprotein which is made up of 153 amino acids, it is a member of the secretin family. One of the primary function of this protein is to stimulate the secretion of insulin, other important roles include inhibiting the secretion of gastric acid and thereby aiding in protecting the small intestines from getting damaged by the stomach acid. There are recent finding indicating that GIP could have critical roles in bone remodelling and the absence of GIP receptors have a direct correlation to resistance to obesity in knockout mice experiments.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP-active) using current rat GIP active ELISA kit was approximately 0.43 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 2.3 – 150.0 pg/ml.
