Product Details


The Rat Renin ELISA Kit is the perfect solution for researchers looking for a reliable and accurate assay to measure Renin levels in serum, plasma, and tissue homogenates of Rattus norvegicus (Rat). Renin, encoded by the Ren1 gene, is a key regulator of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system and plays a critical role in blood pressure regulation.

With a detection range of 15.6 mU/mL to 1000 mU/mL and a sensitivity of 3.9 mU/mL, this ELISA kit provides highly precise and reproducible measurements of Renin levels. The assay principle is quantitative, and the measurement method is a sandwich assay, making it easy to use and highly reliable. The assay time ranges from 1-5 hours, and sample volume requirements are minimal, with 50-100ul of sample volume required.

This kit has been extensively cited, with over 10 published papers referencing its use. The Rat Renin ELISA Kit is ideal for researchers studying cardiovascular physiology and related fields, providing reliable and accurate measurements of Renin levels in biological samples.

3.9 mU/mL, what does mU stand for?


The representation form of this kit is the active unit, the detection is the content, and the definition of the active unit belongs to the internal traceability reference, which is not convenient to provide to the outside. The representation form of this active unit is also recognized by many authoritative journals and magazines and can be used directly.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Renin is a highly specific endopeptidase, whose only known function is to generate angiotensin I from angiotensinogen in the plasma, initiating a cascade of reactions that produce an elevation of blood pressure and increased sodium retention by the kidney.

  1. The influence of intracellular renin on the inward calcium current in isolated smooth muscle cells from SHR mesenteric arteries was investigated... intracellular renin in vascular resistance vessels from SHR due to internalization or expression, contributes to the regulation of vascular tone and control of peripheral resistance-an effect independently of Ang II.
