Alpha 1-Microglobulin ELISA

BioMarkers | Diabetic Nephropathy | Injury and Dysfunction


The K-ASSAY┬« Human alpha1-Microglobulin (A1M) ELISA is designed for the quantitative determination of A1M in serum, plasma, cell culture supernatants, body fluid and tissue homogenate.

A1M is a low-molecular-weight protein of 26 kDa part of the lipocalin protein superfamily. It is synthesized in the liver, freely filtered by glomeruli and reabsorbed in the renal proximal tubule. It has immunomodulatory functions including inhibition of T lymphocytes stimulation and neutrophil chemotaxis.

Increased urinary concentration of A1M indicates proximal tubule injury and/or impaired proximal tubular function. It useful for diagnosing kidney disorders such as diabetic nephropathy.
