Hi, May I know your 'rat hepcidin ELISA kit (CSB-EL010124RA)' either detects mature hepcidin (25, 22 ,20 amino acid) or pro-hepcidin (84 amino acid)?
I'd purchased this kit through Sungwoo LifeScience, and the result was sufficient. I'm going to be even more happy if I know that which form of hepcidin is detected by the kit.
Thank you for supplying many effecient kits.

Thanks for your email and your concern & trust on Cusabio!
The mentioned kit#CSB-EL010124RA is directed to full length.Theoretically,this kit can detect kinds of forms of hepcidin.That is to say,it detect total hepcidin.
If further questions,pls let us know.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Liver-produced hormone that constitutes the main circulating regulator of iron absorption and distribution across tissues. Acts by promoting endocytosis and degradation of ferroportin/SLC40A1, leading to the retention of iron in iron-exporting cells and decreased flow of iron into plasma. Controls the major flows of iron into plasma: absorption of dietary iron in the intestine, recycling of iron by macrophages, which phagocytose old erythrocytes and other cells, and mobilization of stored iron from hepatocytes.; Has strong antimicrobial activity against E.coli ML35P N.cinerea and weaker against S.epidermidis, S.aureus and group b streptococcus bacteria. Active against the fungus C.albicans. No activity against P.aeruginosa.

  2. In experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis, we recently found that chronic iron overload influences the course of disease. In females, iron overload accelerated the onset of disease, while in males it accelerated the progression of disease and increased mortality rate. We hypothesize that those differences arise on molecular level in different expression of stress response proteins hepcidin and metallothioneins. PMID: 28915963
  3. Anti-hemojuvelin antibody corrects anemia caused by inappropriately high hepcidin levels PMID: 26944476
  4. when a high erythropoietic stimulus occurs, hepcidin synthesis is mainly regulated by transferrin saturation; however, when the erythropoiesis rate reaches a specific threshold, extramedullary hematopoiesis is triggered, and the control of hepcidin synthesis is switched to matriptase-2, thus inhibiting hepcidin synthesis. PMID: 27282570

  7. liver iron overload was an important stimuli for hepcidin synthesis, stronger than the inhibitory effect of high rHuEPO doses; moreover, the findings raised the hypothesis that when high inflammation (triggering hepcidin expression) was associated with increased iron stores in hemodialysis patients, hepcidin expression was also upregulated via BMP6, enhancing hepcidin synthesis, leading, therefore, to worsening of anemia PMID: 26990350
  8.
