Melatonin ELISA Kit (55R-RE54031)

ELISA kit for detection of Melatonin in the research laboratory

Applications ELISA
Assay Information This is a Solid phase ELISA based on the competition principle. An unknown amount of antigen present in the sample and a fixed amount of enzyme labelled antigen compete for the binding sites of the antibodies coated onto the wells. After incubation the wells are washed to stop the competition reaction. After the substrate reaction the intensity of the developed color is inversely proportional to the amount of the antigen in the sample. Results of samples can be determined directly using the standard curve.

General Information

Biological Significance The major hormone of the pineal gland is N-acetyl-5-methoxy-tryptamine or melatonin which is synthezised from the amino acid tryptophane. Melatonin has its highest levels in plasma during nighttime. Its characteristic nocturnal surge appears to encode temporal information such as length of night. Regulation of the melatonin secretion is under neural control. Sympathetic innervation seems to play a major role via its release of noradrenaline.
