Human Resistin ELISA kit (ab183364) is a single-wash 90 min sandwich ELISA designed for the quantitative measurement of Resistin protein in human serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants. It uses our proprietary SimpleStep ELISA® technology. Quantitate human Resistin with 24 pg/mL sensitivity.
SimpleStep ELISA® technology employs capture antibodies conjugated to an affinity tag that is recognized by the monoclonal antibody used to coat our SimpleStep ELISA® plates. This approach to sandwich ELISA allows the formation of the antibody-analyte sandwich complex in a single step, significantly reducing assay time. See the SimpleStep ELISA® protocol summary in the image section for further details. Our SimpleStep ELISA® technology provides several benefits:
-Single-wash protocol reduces assay time to 90 minutes or less
-High sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility from superior antibodies
-Fully validated in biological samples
-96-wells plate breakable into 12 x 8 wells strips
A 384-well SimpleStep ELISA® microplate (ab203359) is available to use as an alternative to the 96-well microplate provided with SimpeStep ELISA® kits.
Resistin, otherwise known as Found in Inflammatory Zone 3 (FIZZ3), and Adipocyte Secreted Factor (ADSF), is a 114 amino-acid cysteine-rich protein. It can be found as a high molecular weight hexamer or as a more active, lower molecular weight complex. Resistin is the best known member of the family of Resistin-like Molecules (RELMs), which include RELM-alpha/FIZZ1 and RELM-beta/FIZZE 2, both described only in rodents. Furthermore, resistin has been categorized as part of the group of adipokines hormones, which are known to be involved in the development of obesity, insulin resistance, diabetes, inflammation, autoimmune disease and metabolic syndrome.
In Humans, Resistin is a pro-inflammatory molecule primarily secreted by macrophages and mononuclear bone marrow cells in response to inflammation, hyperglycemia, and growth hormones. IL-1, IL-6, TNF-alpha as well as lipopolysaccharide (LPS) are strong inducers of resistin as observed in animal models of hepatic inflammation and necrosis. High levels of resistin are also observed in patients with pancreatitis and with systemic lupus erythematosus.

SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.
Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed
The levels of native Resistin in serum samples were tested from ten individual healthy donors. Levels were interpolated from the standard curve in Sample Diluent NS. The mean level of Resistin was 2.6 ng/mL with a range of 1.6 to 5.3 ng/mL and a standard deviation of 1 ng/mL.
