Intended Use:
Human Adrenomedullin Chemiluminescent EIA is a quantitative in-vitro protocol for analysing amounts of human adrenomedullin levels in serum, plasma, culture media, CSF, any biological fluid samples, urine and tissue homogenate.

Assay Principle:
1. Human adrenomedullin Chemiluminescent EIA 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 substrate solution.
4. Luminescence intensity is directly proportional to the amount of biotinylated peptide-SA-HRP complex but inversely proportional to the amount of the peptide in standard solutions or samples.
5. Unknown concentration in samples can then be determined by extrapolation from a standard curve.

Cross Reactivity:
Adrenomedullin (Human) 100%.
Adrenomedullin (Mouse, Rat) 100%.
Adrenomedullin (13-52)(Human) 100%.
Adrenomedullin-Gly (Human) 1%.
CGRP 0%.
Endothelin-1 0%.
Amylin 0%.
CNP-22 0%.
alpha-ANP (1-28) 0%.
BNP-32 0%.

Human adrenomedullin is a peptide associated with pheochromocytoma which shares moderate structural similarity to the calcitonin family of regulatory peptides (calcitonin, CGRP and amylin). It is a gene is localized to a single locus on Chromosome 11 with 4 exons and 3 introns.
