Intended Use:
(Mouse, Rat)can be used for in vitro quantitative analysis of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) levels in plasma, tissue homogenate, serum, any biological fluid, CSF and urine.

Assay Principle:
1. This ANP EIA kit has been pre-coated with secondary antibody and also the non-specific binding sites have been blocked.
2. Secondary antibody is able to bind with the Fc fragment of the primary antibody, the Fab segment is competitively bound by both biotinylated peptides and the peptide standard or the targeted peptide in samples.
3. Biotinylated peptide can then interact with the SA-HRP, which then catalyzes the TMB substrate solution and hydrogen peroxide to form a blue coloured solution.
4. Reaction is stopped by adding hydrogen chloride, which forms a yellow coloured solution.
5. Intensity of the yellow solution is inversely proportional to the amount of the peptide in standard solutions or samples.
6. Unknown concentration of mouse or rat ANP in samples can then be determined using this ANP EIA assay by extrapolation from a standard curve.

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) s a polypeptide hormone that has a vital role in the homeostatic control of body water, adiposity and sodium. It is a 28 amino acid peptide with a 17 amino acid ring in the middle of the molecule that is released by atrial myocytes, muscle cells in the atria of the heart, in response to high blood pressure. It functions to lower the sodium, water and adipose loads on the circulatory system, thereby reducing blood pressure.
