Rat LRG ELISA kit can be used for qualitative measurement of leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (leucine rich alpha-2-glycoprotein, LRG) using rat serum, urine, culture supernatant and EDTA-plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.68 ng/ml.
Leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (LRG) belongs to a family of protein that are rich in leucine repeats. LRG are involved in a large number of processes which can include signal transduction, cell adhesion, protein to protein interactions and cell development. The levels of LRG serum levels have been reported to be significantly elevated in the cerebrospinal fluid in iNPH and in rheumatoid arthritis patients when compared to healthy controls.
The minimum sensitivity detection limit of rat leucine rich alpha2-glycoprotein (LRG, leucine rich alpha-2-glycoprotein) using current rat LRG ELISA kit is 1.68 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 6.25 – 500 ng/ml.
