Anti-gliadin antibodies (AGA) are made up of three subtypes anti-gliadin IgA (useful in diagnosing coeliac disease patients), anti-gliadin IgG (non-celiac gluten sensitivities and coeliac disease) and anti-gliadin IgE (allergy related conditions). They are present in wheat (as prolamin), existing as 3 alleles AA, BB or DD and are produced in response to gliadin. Each of the alleles are slightly different and therefore able to produce a variety of antibodies. Gliadin are forming crucial components of gluten and become n more widely used in the diagnosis of gluten-induced enteropathy.
Human gliadin-IgM ELISA kit can be used for detecting in-vitro quantitative concentrations of human IgM antibodies against gliadin in plasma or serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.94 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human anti-gliadin IgM using this human gliadin-IgM ELISA kit was 0.94 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 1.0 – 300.0 U/ml.
