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.
Heparin sulfate ELISA kits are assays designed to detect the linear polysaccharide heparin sulfate, which is composed of glucosamine and uronic acid repeats. It plays a role in the regulation of the immune response, angiogenesis, leukocyte development, tumor metastasis, and blood coagulation. It may also bind to certain viruses. The biosynthesis and modification of heparin sulfate is believed to occur in the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus. The anticoagulant heparin is a highly sulfated form of heparin sulfate. Proteins that are covalently bound to heparin sulfate are called heparin sulfate proteoglycans. Visit the supplier page for more information about detection target, range, and reactivity.
