  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Human Fetuin A (AHSG) in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of Human Fetuin A (AHSG) in cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).

    A Fetuin A (AHSG) specific mouse monoclonal antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and incubated. A biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for Fetuin A (AHSG) is then added followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. TMB is then used to visualize the HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the Human Fetuin A (AHSG) amount of sample captured in plate.

Properties

  • Function
    Promotes endocytosis, possesses opsonic properties and influences the mineral phase of bone. Shows affinity for calcium and barium ions.
  • Tissue specificity
    Synthesized in liver and selectively concentrated in bone matrix. Secreted in plasma. It is also found in dentin in much higher quantities than other plasma proteins.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the fetuin family.
    Contains 2 cystatin fetuin-A-type domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation sites are present in the extracelllular medium.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted.
