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.
Adenosine deaminase ELISA kits are assays designed to detect the enzyme adenosine deaminase (ADA). ADA is involved in purine metabolism, catalyzing the irreversible conversion of adenosine to inosine through deamination. ADA has two forms, ADA1 and ADA2, and exists both as a monomer and larger dimer complex. It requires zinc as a cofactor for activation. It plays a key role in the immune system through its presence in lymphocytes and macrophages. Increased levels of ADA have been associated with conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and psoriasis. Visit the supplier page for more information about detection range and reactivity.
