Description

The ImmuChrom Alpha-1 Antitrypsin ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of alpha-1-antitrypsin (A1AT) in human stool or serum samples.

Alpha-1-Antitrypsin is a 52 kD glycoprotein, which is produced by the liver, intestinal macrophages, monocytes and mucous membrane cells of the gut. It belongs to the group of acute phase proteins and is one of the most important proteinase inhibitor. Alpha-1-antitrypsin inhibits, beside others, the proteinases trypsin and the elastase of neutrophiles. A lack of α-1-AT leads to an enhanced proteolysis. Only a very small amount of alpha-1-antitrypsin is cleaved or resorbed in the gut. Therefore the measurement of α-1-AT in stool reflects the permeability of the gut during inflammatory processes.

Type

Sandwich ELISA, HRP-labelled antibody

Other names

A1AT, α-1-AT, SERPINA1, SERPIN A1, serum trypsin inhititor, alpha 1 proteinase inhibitor, Alpha-1-antiproteinase, fecal Alpha-1-Antitrypsin, faecal Alpha-1-Antitrypsin

Principle of Method

The α-1-AT -ELISA test determines human alpha-1-antitrypsin according to the “sandwich”-principle. α-1-AT in sample, standard and controls binds to antibodies, which are coated to the microtiterplate. After a washing step a peroxidase labeled detection antibody is added. A second washing step is followed by the addition of the substrate which is converted to a colored product by the peroxidase. The reaction is terminated by the addition of an acidic stop solution. The optical densities are read at 450 nm (against the reference wavelength 620 nm) in a microtiterplate reader. The α-1-AT concentration can be calculated from the standard curve.
