|Product name||EliKine™ Triiodothyronine (T3) ELISA Kit|
|Reactivity||Bovine, Chicken, Dog, Goat, Human, Monkey, Mouse, Rabbit, Rat, Sheep, Swine|
|Applications notes||EliKine™ T3 ELISA Kit employs the competitive inhibition enzyme immunoassay technique. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to T3. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with Biotin-conjugated T3. A competitive inhibition reaction is launched between T3 (Standards or samples) and Biotin-conjugated T3 with the pre-coated antibody specific for T3. The more amount of T3 in samples, the less antibody bound by Biotin-conjugated T3. After washing, avidin conjugated Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to the wells. Substrate solution is added to the wells and the color develops in opposite to the amount of T3 in the sample. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.|

|Background||Triiodothyronine (T3) is a useful marker for the diagnosis of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The level of T3 is decreased in hypothyroid patients and is increased in hyperthyroid patients. Production of T3 is activated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which is released from the anterior pituitary gland. This pathway is part of a closed-loop feedback process: Elevated concentrations of T3 in the blood plasma inhibit the production of TSH in the anterior pituitary gland. As concentrations of these hormones decrease, the anterior pituitary gland increases production of TSH, and by these processes, a feedback control system stabilizes the amount of thyroid hormones that are in the bloodstream.|
