Human Jo-1 Ab ELISA kit is intended for detecting in-vitro quantitative concentrations of IgG autoantibodies to Jo-1 antibody (Jo-1 Ab, Jo-1 IgG) in human plasma and serum. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
Jo-1 (also known as histidyl tRNA synthetase) belongs to the family of amino acyl-tRNA synthetase enzymes which can be found in all nucleated cells. Jo 1 antibodies are important markers for the disease polymyositis (usually in myositis patients who also have interstitial lung disease). They are able to bind to conformational epitopes of the enzyme protein and result in inhibiting its catalytic activity. Jo1 is also referred to as an extractable nuclear antigen and can be detected using and ENA screen.
The following Jo-1 antibody ELISA kit is designed to be used for various diagnostic applications. It is found in over 25% of cases of polymyositis and also displays a good correlation with pulmonary fibrosis being present. Between 20–40% of polymyositis are found to be positive for Jo-1 antibodies, with majority also displaying interstitial lung disease, HLA-DR3 and HLA-DRw52 markers and these are often collectively known as Jo-1 syndrome.

The minimum detection sensitivity level of human Jo-1 IgG autoantibodies (Jo-1 antibody, Jo-1 Ab, Jo-1 IgG) using current human Jo-1 antibody ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 12.5 – 200.0 U/ml.
