Usage & Assay Information

Usage Recommendations The ACTH Immunoassay is a two-site ELISA for the measurement of the biologically active 39 amino acid chain of ACTH. A goat polyclonal antibody to human ACTH, purified by affinity chromatography, and a mouse monoclonal antibody to human ACTH are specific for well defined regions on the ACTH molecule. One antibody is prepared to bind only the C-terminal ACTH 34-39 and this antibody is biotinylated. The other antibody is prepared to bind only the mid-region and N-terminal ACTH 1-24 and this antibody is labeled with horseradish peroxidase for detection.

Biohazard Information Although the reagents provided in this kit has been specifically designed to contain no human blood components, the human patient samples, which might be positive for HBsAg, HBcAg or HIV antibodies, must be treated as potentially infectious biohazard. Com

General Information

Biological Significance Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), also known as 'corticotrophin', 'Adrenocorticotrophic hormone', is a polypeptide tropic hormone produced and secreted by the anterior pituitary gland. It is an important component of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and is often produced in response to biological stress (along with corticotropin-releasing hormone from the hypothalamus). Its principal effects are increased production and release of corticosteroids and, as its name suggests, cortisol from the adrenal cortex.
