  • Product overview

    Human Ferritin ELISA kit is a competitive ELISA designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of Ferritin (FTL) in serum and plasma.

    A 96-well plate has been precoated with anti-Ferritin IgG antibodies. Samples, standards and the Ferritin-HRP conjugate are added to the wells, where Ferritin in the sample and standards binds to the precoated antibody and added Ferritin-HRP conjugate binds to this antibody-AFP complex. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material and TMB substrate is then added which is catalyzed by HRP to produce blue coloration. The reaction is terminated by addition of Stop Solution which stops the color development and produces a color change from blue to yellow. The intensity of signal is directly proportional to the amount of Ferritin in the sample and the intensity is measured at 450 nm.

    Get results in 90 minutes with Human Ferritin ELISA Kit (FLT) (ab200018) from our SimpleStep ELISA® range.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Important for iron homeostasis. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation. Also plays a role in delivery of iron to cells. Mediates iron uptake in capsule cells of the developing kidney.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in FTL are the cause of hereditary hyperferritinemia-cataract syndrome (HHCS) [MIM:600886]. It is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by early-onset bilateral cataract. Affected patients have elevated level of circulating ferritin. HHCS is caused by mutations in the iron responsive element (IRE) of the FTL gene.
    Defects in FTL are the cause of neurodegeneration with brain iron accumulation type 3 (NBIA3) [MIM:606159]; also known as adult-onset basal ganglia disease. It is a movement disorder with heterogeneous presentations starting in the fourth to sixth decade. It is characterized by a variety of neurological signs including parkinsonism, ataxia, corticospinal signs, mild nonprogressive cognitive deficit and episodic psychosis. It is linked with decreased serum ferritin levels.
