DescriptionSMC™ Human Total Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (Total GLP-1)
OverviewThe SMC™ Total GLP-1 Immunoassay Kit contains all reagents required to perform the assay. This assay takes advantage of a standard immunoassay workflow configured in a standard plate format. Assay protocols are similar to existing sandwich ELISA methods with two key differences: 1) Elution buffer disrupts the sandwich, separating the labeled detection antibody for quantification. 2) The SMC™ immunoassay system detects analytes using Single Molecule Counting (SMC™) technology.
Background InformationGlucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a member of the incretin family of hormones, which are released by the gut into the bloodstream in response to food. Post-translational cleavage of the peptide produces active GLP-1, which is then rapidly degraded by protease dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4). When blood glucose level is high, active GLP-1 enhances insulin secretion and also suppresses the release of glucagon. In addition, GLP-1 stimulates the brain to trigger feelings of satiety and regulates the rate of gastric emptying. Compared to healthy controls, some patients with type-2 diabetes show a modest decrease in GLP-1 release. Therapeutic GLP-1 analogs such as exenatide, or DPP inhibitors like sitagliptin, are promising strategies for treating type-2 diabetes.
