Human anti-IA2 ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative procedure for measuring insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2) in human serum samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.25 U/ml.
Insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2) autoantibodies are found to be highly present in individuals that are in the pre-diabetic phase or those with new-onset type 1 diabetes. There is a direct correlation with the rapid progression to overt type 1 diabetes with the presence of autoantibodies to anti-IA2. It is a member of the tyrosine phosphatases protein family and shares sequence homology with the islet cell antigen 512. Found to be localised in the second defined recombinant islet cell antigen and the dense granules of pancreatic beta cells and the second defined recombinant islet cell antigen. The higher frequency of antibodies to insulinoma associated 2 can be explained by the presence of autoantibodies which are directed to the COOH terminus of human anti-IA2 and are lacking in the ICA512 molecule.
The following human anti-IA2 ELISA kit is intended for measuring many types of diagnostic applications. A combination of assays using insulinoma associated 2 (anti-IA2 autoantibodies) and GAD65 is seen as a highly relevant approach for assessing diabetes (type 1) in children and adolescence. It is possible to detect more than 90% of individuals that are at risk to diabetes (type 1) by performing a screen for human anti-IA2 autoantibodies and GAD65. Please note that this anti-IA2 ELISA kit is specifically designed for analysing serum samples only.
