Anti-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide IgA ELISA Kit (DGP)
Serum, Heparin Plasma, Citrate Plasma
> 0.74 U/ml
15 U/ml -
Multiple steps standard assay
Abcam’s anti-Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of IgA class antibodies against deamidated Gliadin peptides (DGP) in Human serum and plasma.
A 96-well plate has been precoated with deamidated Gliadin peptide (DGP) antigens to bind cognate antibodies. Controls or test samples are added to the wells and incubated. Following washing, a horseradish peroxidase (HRP) labelled anti-Human IgA conjugate is added to the wells, which binds to the immobilized deamidated Gliadin peptide (DGP)-specific antibodies. TMB is then catalyzed by the HRP to produce a blue color product that changes to yellow after adding an acidic stop solution. The intensity of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the amount of deamidated Gliadin peptide (DGP) IgA sample captured in plate.

Anti-gliadin antibodies are produced in response to gliadin, a prolamin found in wheat. In bread wheat it is encoded by three different alleles, AA, BB, and DD. These alleles can produce slightly different gliadins, which can cause the body to produce different antibodies. Some of these antibodies can detect proteins in specific grass taxa such as Triticeae (Triticeae glutens), while others react sporadically with certain species in those taxa, or over many taxonomically defined grass tribes.
The IgA antibody is found in ~80% of patients with coeliac disease. It is directed against the alpha/beta and gamma (a,ß,?) gliadins. It is also found in a number of patients who are not enteropathic. Some of these patients may have neuropathies that respond favorably to a gluten elimination diet. This is referred to as gluten-sensitive idiopathic neuropathy. Clinically these antibodies and IgG antibodies to gliadin are abbreviated as AGA.
The IgG antibody is similar to AGA IgA, but is found at higher levels in patients with the IgA-less phenotype. It is also associated with coeliac disease and idiopathic gluten sensitivity.
Anti-gliadin antibodies are frequently found with anti-transglutaminase antibodies.
The IgE antibodies are more typically found in allergy-related conditions such as urticaria, asthma, and wheat-dependent exercise-induced anaphylaxis. The target of the most allergenic antibodies is ?-5 gliadin, which is encoded by the Gli-1B gene found on the B haplome (Aegilops speltoides derived) of wheat.
