Cathepsin G Antibody ELISA Kit (CTSG)


Human cathepsin G antibody ELISA kit can be used for detecting in vitro quantitative amounts of IgG auto-antibodies to cathepsin G (cathepsin G antibody, CTSG IgG) in human serum and plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of < 0.055 ng/ml.


Cathepsin G (CTSG) is an intracellular proteases which are mainly located in the liver, kidney and the spleen. It plays major roles in the elimination of intracellular pathogens, breakdown of tissues at inflammatory sites and triggering anti-inflammatory responses. It is a 255 amino acids protein which consists of a two residue N-terminal activation peptides, an 18-residue signal peptide and a carboxy terminal extension.

The activity cathepsin G is dependent on the catalytic triad that is made up of aspartate, histidine and serine residues. These generally tend to close together near the active site of the enzyme when in the tertiary structure. Some other less common functions of cathepsin are cleavage of receptors, blood-brain barrier breakdown, platelet activation, angiotensin to angiotensin II conversion and airway submucosal gland secretion induction.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
