Product Information

KE00221 is a solid phase sandwich Enzyme Linked-Immuno-Sorbent Assay (Sandwich ELISA). The ELISA kit is to be used to detect and quantify protein levels of endogenous HGH. The assay recognizes human HGH An antibody specific for HGH has been pre-coated onto the microwells. The HGH protein in samples is captured by the coated antibody after incubation. Following extensive washing, another antibody specific for HGH is added to detect the captured HGH protein. For signal development, horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated antibody is added, followed by Tetramethyl-benzidine (TMB) reagent. Solution containing sulfuric acid is used to stop color development and the color intensity which is proportional to the quantity of bound protein is measurable at 450 nm with the correction wavelength set at 630 nm.

Background Information

Growth hormone (GH) is a heterogeneous polypeptide consisting of a number of different isoforms and variants. Its secretion from pituitary somatotrophs is pulatile, with low or undetectable basal levels between peaks. GH secretion has a characteristic diurnal pattern with maximal levels recorded during sleep. Growth hormone is a powerful anabolic hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. The actions of GH are mediated by GH receptors (GHR), which are widely distributed among tissues. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to growth hormone deficiency and short stature.
