The Mouse glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) ELISA Kit is an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative detection of mouse GLP-1in many biological fluids, including serum, plasma, or tissue homogenates. GLP-1 is a gut-derived peptide secreted from intestinal L-cells following a meal. The action of GLP-1 is through the binding of a specific GLP-1 receptor, which is expressed in various tissues, including pancreatic beta cells, pancreatic ducts, and gastric mucosa. GLP-1 exerts its main effect by enhancing glucose-dependent insulin production. GLP-1 has also been demonstrated to delay gastric emptying, suppress inappropriate post-meal glucagon release, and increase satiety.
This assay employs the Sandwich-ELISA technique, in which GLP-1 in the samples or standards is sandwiched between pre-coated an anti-mouse GLP-1 and Biotin-labeled GLP-1 antibody. The Ag-Ab-Ag immune complex is labeled with HRP-avidin and then develops a color reaction after the addition of the TMB substrate. The intensity of the color is positively correlated to the amount of GLP-1 in the sample. The kit has a detection range of 62.5 ng/mL-4000 ng/mL, excellent sensitivity, high specificity, good linearity, precision low than 10%, high recovery, good lot-to-lot consistency.
