Product overview:
KE00097 is a solid phase sandwich Enzyme Linked-Immuno-Sorbent Assay (Sandwich ELISA). The Fetuin A ELISA kit is to be used to detect and quantify protein levels of endogenous Fetuin A. The assay recognizes human Fetuin A. A polyclonal antibody specific for Fetuin A has been pre-coated onto the microwells. The Fetuin A protein in samples is captured by the coated antibody after incubation. Following extensive washing, a monoclonal antibody specific for Fetuin A is added to detect the captured Fetuin A 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 450nm.

Background

Fetuin A, also named as Alpha2-HS glycoprotein (AHSG), is a member of cystatin superfamily of protease inhibitors. It is a highly expressed glycoprotein in various fetal tissues whereas it is mainly expressed by the liver in adults. Fetuin A, an extracellular inhibitor of transforming growth factor β, is a profibrogenic stimulus in liver disease. Circulating fetuin A may be a beneficial serum biomarker in the detection of liver and vascular fibrosis progression in patients with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. It is also involved in several functions, such as endocytosis, brain development and the formation of bone tissue. Fetuin A exerts its effects on the cardiovascular system by two different mechanisms. On the one hand it inhibits insulin signaling and induces insulin resistance contributing to the onset of atherosclerosis and on the other hand it inhibits calcium deposition and protects from vascular calcification.
