Tissue Transglutaminase Ab IgG ELISA Kit


Human tissue transglutaminase Ab IgG ELISA kit can be used for determining in-vitro quantitative levels of IgG class auto-antibodies to tissue transglutaminase (anti-tissue transglutaminase, tissue transglutaminase antibody IgG, TG2-IgG, tTG) in human serum or plasma. This assay has a minimum analytical sensitivity limit of 1.0 U/ml.


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 cross linking 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. Tissue transglutaminase 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.


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.

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.
