Product Details


CUSABIO’s Human Glycocalicin ELISA kit is designed for the quantitative detection of human glycocalicin in serum, plasma, or tissue homogenates. This kit has been validated with high sensitivity, excellent specificity, good linearity, high recovery, precision low than 10%, and high lot-to-lot consistency. The detection mechanism of this kit is based on the sandwich ELISA technique and enzyme-substrate chromogenic reaction. The solution color develops in proportion to the amount of glycocalicin in the sample, and the intensity of the color can be measured at 450 nm via a microplate reader.

Platelet glycocalicin is the major and extramembranous domain of Glycoprotein Iba (GPlba) that can be rapidly cleaved by proteases such as calpain, plasmin, and trypsin. It is not only a marker but also a parameter that reflects platelet turnover, therefore being an aid in the classification of thrombocytopenic disorders. Besides, platelet glycocalicin could act as a circulating inhibitor of thrombin. The levels of platelet glycocalicin were elevated in patients with myocardial infarction after receiving recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (rtPA) treatment. Platelet glycocalicin levels in platelet concentrates may be helpful to qualitative control the storage conditions over time for blood banks.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
GP-Ib, a surface membrane protein of platelets, participates in the formation of platelet plugs by binding to the A1 domain of vWF, which is already bound to the subendothelium.
