TG2 or tTG which is short for tissue transglutaminase is a member of the γ-glutamyltransferases family and is a 78 kDa, calcium-dependent enzyme. It is vital for many functions such as wound healing, extracellular matrix development and apoptosis. tTG is multifunctional and is responsible for catalysing the crosslinking of proteins through epsilon-lysine isopeptide bonds. It has been associated with celiac disease, which is caused by dietary consumption of gluten and this can lead to a number of different pathological immune responses. tTG is fundamental in processes such as inflammation and tumor biology, it is also found in many neurodegenerative disorders for example Parkinson, Alzheimer and Huntington diseases.
Human tissue transglutaminase IgG ELISA kit can be used for determining in-vitro quantitative levels of IgG class autoantibodies to tissue transglutaminase (TG2, tTG) in human serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of human tTG /TG2 IgG class autoantibodies using this human tissue transglutaminase IgG ELISA kit was 1.0 U/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 5.0 – 200.0 U/ml.
