GIP Active Form ELISA Kit (Mouse)


Mouse GIP active ELISA kit is a procedure intended for detecting in vitro quantitative levels of mouse active form gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP active form, GIP [1-42]) using plasma samples. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.5 pg/ml.


Gastric inhibitory polypeptide (GIP) is derived from a 153 amino proprotein that belongs to the secretin family. It has a major role in the stimulation of insulin secretion, however, it is also a weak inhibitor of gastric acid secretion and this helps to protect small intestines from stomach acid damage. Recently, there is evidence to indicate that GIP may be a vital player in bone remodelling, it was discovered that mice which had GIP receptor production disrupted resulted in profound alteration of bone microarchitecture. There are reports to suggest absence of GIP receptors display’s a correlation to resistance to obesity in knockout mice studies.


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.

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.
