Human tissue transglutaminase Ab IgA ELISA kit is a procedure intended for in-vitro quantitative measurement of IgA class autoantibodies direct to tissue transglutaminase (tTG, TG2-IgA, anti-tissue transglutaminase, tissue transglutaminase antibody IgA) in human serum and plasma samples. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
Tissue transglutaminase which can also referred to as tTG and TG2, is a calcium-dependent enzyme which is 78 kDa and belongs to the γ-glutamyltransferases family. It is a multi-functional enzyme which can catalyse the crosslinking of proteins via epsilon-lysine isopeptide bonds. The following tissue transglutaminase antibody IgA ELISA kit is designed to be used for many different diagnostic applications. It has been implicated in a number of different functions which can include apoptosis, extracellular matrix development and wound healing. tTG is however, best known for its association with celiac disease, this is an illness where dietary gluten consumption can lead to pathological immune responses causing inflammation of the small intestine. tTG is also found to be instrumental in a number of neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer, Huntington and Parkinson diseases. Recent studies have indicated that it may play important role in tumor biology and inflammation.
