The Quantikine Human AgRP Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human AgRP in cell culture supernates, plasma, and urine. It contains Sf 21-expressed recombinant human AgRP and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human AgRP showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained usin...g the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring human AgRP.

Alternate Names for Human AgRP Quantikine ELISA Kit
agouti related protein homolog (mouse)
ARTagouti (mouse) related protein
Agouti-related Protein (AgRP), also known as the protein product of the Agouti-related Transcript (ART), is a neuropeptide and a functional antagonist of alpha-MSH on Melanocortin (MC)-3 and MC-4 receptors, both of which are implicated in obesity. AgRP shares sequence and structural similarity with the Agouti protein and has similar expression patterns in both mouse and human.
