The ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is a widely used application for detecting and quantifying proteins and antigens from various samples. Target-specific ELISA kits are available from a variety of manufacturers and can help streamline your immunodetection experiments.
Estrone ELISA kits are assays designed to detect the weak estrogen hormone estrone. It is one of the main endogenous estrogens, and a minor female sex hormone. It is produced from androstenedione or testosterone via estradiol. It increases the synthesis of sex hormone-binding globulin (SHBG), thyroid-binding globulin (TBG), and other serum proteins and suppresses the release of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH). It plays a role in the development of female reproductive tissues and secondary sexual characteristics. Visit the supplier page for more information about detection range and reactivity.
