Endothelin-1 ELISA Kit


Human endothelin-1 ELISA kit is a reliable quantitative method for detecting ET-1 (endothelin-1, EDN1) in human tissue extracts, serum, plasma (EDTA), and cell culture supernatant. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.75 pg/ml.


Endothelin-1 (ET-1, EDN1) is a 21 amino acid peptide that is produced from big ET-1 through the action of endothelin converting enzyme (ECE), which are found on vascular endothelial cell membrane. The formation and release of human ET-1 is known to be stimulated by angiotensin II, antidiuretic hormone, cytokines, thrombin and other shearing forces that can be acting on the vascular endothelium. Also, the release of human endothelin-1 can be inhibited by atrial natriuretic peptides, nitric oxides and by prostacyclin.

Due to its powerful vasoconstrictor properties and the effects it has on intracellular calcium, endothelin-1 has been implicated in many pathogenesis related to hypertension, heart failure and coronary vasospasm. The receptor antagonists have also been shown to decrease mortality and improve hemodynamic in many experimental models of heart failure.

The minimum sensitivity detection limit of ET-1 (EDN1, endothelin-1) using current human endothelin-1 ELISA kit was approximately 0.75 pg/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.25 – 80.0 pg/ml.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

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.

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.

You are my first point of contact when I am looking to purchase ELISA. You have such an easy and simple system, yet it is very effective.
