New Human Secretagogin ELISA

Secretagogin is expressed in central nervous system, and it seems to be involved in several pathological conditions in the CNS, such as epilepsy or
neurodegenerative disorders, for example Alzheimer´s disease. Recent study shown, that secretagogin is detectable in human serum after ischemic brain demage, under specific pathological condition associated with neuronal death and impairment of the blood-brain barrier. Additionally, its strong expression in insulin secreting cells, its influence on insulin expression might contribute to
insuline homeostasis.
The Human Secretagogin ELISA kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the determination of Secretagogin in human serum.
