Reagents, Immunoassay, Protein, Transport, Transthyretin

Definition : Immunoassay reagents intended to perform qualitative and/or quantitative analyses on a body fluid sample to determine transthyretin (also known as prealbumin), an alpha-globulin protein secreted by the liver that forms a complex with retinol binding protein; this complex binds and transports retinol (vitamin A). Transthyretin also binds to the hormones thyroxine and triidothyroxine but is not the principal carrier of them. The level of transthyretin in plasma is a sensitive indicator of protein malnutrition or liver dysfunction; its level in serum decreases in inflammation, malignancy, and cirrhosis of the liver.

Entry Terms : "Transthyretin Determination Reagents" , "Pre-Albumin Determination Reagents"

UMDC code : 19807
