Porcine Trypsin ELISA Kit (Try)

Full Name: Porcine Trypsin ELISA Kit (Try)
Reactivity: Porcine
Sample Type: Serum, Tissue Homogenates, Biological Fluids, Plasma
Sensitivity:  0.938 ng/ml


Trypsin (Try) cleaves proteins into smaller peptides, aiding in the absorption of nutrients such as amino acids. It is also used in research laboratories to cut proteins and peptides into specific sizes for further analysis. It functions by cleaving predominately arginine and lysine residues that are located at the carboxyl terminal. It is usually denatured with heat, alkali or acidic solutions to make it more active and then the enzyme can be stored in a solution or kept in its native form.

Trypsin enzyme cuts itself and its substrate between arginine residues. The other end of the substrate is cleaved on a phenylalanine residue that is located at the carboxyl terminal. Natively, this enzyme also cuts itself and its substrate between aspartic acid residues.

Trypsin deficiency can cause malabsorption of proteins and this can lead to pancreatitis. However, this is a rare condition, as trypsinogen is activated into trypsin in the small intestine and enterokinase deficiency is more common. Historically, it was prepared from casein, a milk protein. However, in modern times, it is produced from soy protein. It is classified as a serine protease.

One trypsin molecule cleaves at least two peptide bonds in the non-catalysed reaction between the active site and its substrate, resulting in two fragments: an amide and a carboxyl group. Trypsin cleaves peptide bonds, mainly in non-catalysed reactions with its substrate. This results in the release of a carboxyl group and an amide fragment. The amide fragment is non-functional because it has lost its amino group, but the carboxyl group can react with other molecules to form esters and amides.


Porcine trypsin ELISA kit can be used for detecting concentration of trypsin (Try) using porcine plasma, other biological fluids, serum and tissue homogenate samples.


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.
