Proteins & Enzymes
β-2-Microglobulin is a cancer and renal biomarker. Excellent for controls or calibrators in enzyme assays. Beta 2-microglobulin is present in small amounts in serum, csf, and urine of normal people, and to a much greater degree in the urine and plasma of patients with tubular proteinaemia, renal failure, or kidney transplants. Human Beta 2 microglobulin levels can rise either because its rate of synthesis has increased (e.g. in AIDS, malignant monoclonal plasma cell dyscrasia, solid tumors and autoimmune disease) or because of impaired renal filtration (e.g. due to renal insufficiency, graft rejection or nephrotoxicity induced by post-transplantation immunosuppressive therapy). Beta-2 microglobulin levels might also be elevated in multiple myeloma and lymphoma cases. Dialysis-related amyloidosis develops after a long-term hemodialysis, it can aggregate into amyloid fibers that deposit in joint spaces.
Mouse IgG (Lyophilized)
IgG antibody subtype is the most abundant serum immunoglobulins of the immune system. It is secreted by B cells and is found in blood and extracellular fluids and provides protection from infections caused by bacteria, fungi and viruses. Maternal IgG is transferred to fetus through the placenta that is vital for immune defence of the neonate against infections. Mouse IgG is purified from normal mouse serum.
Horseradish Peroxidase (Rz >3.0)
Horseradish peroxidase (HRP) is isolated from horseradish roots and belongs to the ferroprotoporphyrin group of peroxidases. HRP is a single chain polypeptide containing four disulfide bridges. It is a glycoprotein containing 18% carbohydrate. The carbohydrate composition consists of galactose, arabinose, xylose, fucose, mannose, mannosamine, and galactosamine depending upon the specific isozyme.
Pectolyase Y-23 (A.Japonicus)
Pectolyase Y-23 is a highly purified maceration enzyme from Aspergillus japonicus. It contains two types of pectinase such as endopolygalacturonase and endo-pectin lyase in high activity. Included is a maceration stimulating factor which stimulates tissue maceration by both pectinases. Pectolyase Y-23 is a highly purified maceration enzyme from Aspergillus japonicus. It contains two types of pectinase such as endopolygalacturonase and endo-pectin lyase in high activity. Included is a maceration stimulating factor which stimulates tissue maceration by both pectinases. Unit Definition: One unit is defined as an increase in A235 by 1.0 in the reaction mixture per minute.
