Human intact PTH ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative method for measuring intact parathyroid hormone (intact parathormone, intact PTH, parathyrin) in human serum samples. This assay has a sensitivity detection limit of 1.72 pg/ml.
Parathyroid hormone (PTH) that is also referred to either parathormone or parathyrin is a molecular precursor that is made up of 115 amino acids and is biosynthesised as a pre-proparathyroid hormone in the parathyroid gland. Following sequential intracellular cleavage and proteolytic modification the proparathyroid hormone is eventually converted to an 84 amino acid polypeptide which is parathyroid hormone.
The following human intact PTH ELISA kit is designed to be used for detecting many types of diagnostic applications. The measurement of intact parathyroid hormone is vital for differentiation of primary hyperparathyroidism from other forms of hypercalcemia, for example thyrotoxicosis, sarcoidosis and malignancy. Parathyroid hormone levels have been found to be elevated in patients with primary hyperparathyroidism, this makes it a specific and helpful tool for diagnosing it. The regulation of intact PTH secretion in healthy individuals occurs through a negative feedback mechanism of serum calcium on the parathyroid glands. The biologically active form is represented by the intact parathyroid hormone, it has a half-life of under four minutes and has the ability to clear rapidly from circulation.
