Description

The Mercodia Glicentin ELISA is a high quality immunoassay for the quantification of human glicentin in serum, plasma and cell culture media.

Glicentin is a proglucagon derived gut peptide that is released in the gut in response to feed intake. It is present in high levels in the circulation after stimulation and is often a problem when measuring glucagon and other proglucagon derivates because of it’s shared sequence. The Mercodia Glicentin ELISA however, has no cross-reactivity to such circulating proglucagon derived gut peptides.
