Human SS-A 52 Ab ELISA kit is designed for measuring in-vitro quantitative amounts of IgG autoantibodies to Sjögren syndrome type A antigen 52 (SS-A 52 antibody, anti SS-A 52, SS-A 52 Ab) in human plasma or serum samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 0.5 U/ml.
Sjögren syndrome type A antigen (SS-A) is made up of a 52 kD and 60 kD protein antigens that are joined to the cytoplasmic RNA species. Anti SS-A 52 can be found in patients having Sjögren’s syndrome, SLE and is some instances other autoimmune disorders. These are however, specifically associated to tRNA synthetases such as PL-7, PL-12, Jo-1, OJ and EJ.
Many publication have also identified that approx. 10-50% of myositis is positive with SSA52 antibody. Autoantibodies that are found directed against antigen SS-A 52 antigens are predominately present in collagenosis (especially Sjögren’s syndrome), systemic sclerosis, dermatomyositis and polymyostitis.
