- Product overview
ab108674 Cortisol Human ELISA Kit uses a competitive immunoenzymatic colorimetric method for quantitative determination of Cortisol in urine.
Cortisol is a steroid hormone released from the adrenal cortex in response to an hormone called ACTH (produced by the pituitary gland), it is involved in the response to stress; it increases blood pressure, blood sugar levels, may cause infertility in women, and suppresses the immune system. Cortisol acts through specific intracellular receptors and has effects in numerous physiologic systems, including immune function, glucose-counter regulation, vascular tone, substrate utilization and bone metabolism. Cortisol is excreted primarily in urine in an unbound (free) form. Cortisol is bound, in plasma, by corticosteroid-binding globulin (CBG, transcotin), with high affinity, and by albumin. Only free cortisol is available to most receptors. These normal endogenous functions are the basis for the physiological consequences of chronic stress - prolonged cortisol secretion causes muscle wastage, hyperglycaemia, and suppresses immune / inflammatory responses. The same consequences arise from long-term use of glucocorticoid drugs. The free cortisol fraction represents the metabolically active cortisol. In normal conditions, less than 1% of cortisol becomes excreted in urine.
