C-Reactive Protein (CRP), named for its capacity to precipitate the somatic C-polysaccharide of Streptococcus pneumoniae, was the first acute-phase protein to be described and is an exquisitely sensitive systemic marker of inflammation and tissue damage. CRP belongs to the pentraxin family of calcium dependent ligand-binding plasma proteins. Human CRP binds with highest affinity to phosphocholine residues, but it also binds to a variety of other autologous and extrinsic ligands, and it aggregates or precipitates the cellular, particulate, or molecular structures bearing these ligands.
Cell Biolabs’ Human CRP ELISA Kit is an enzyme immunoassay developed for the detection and quantitation of human CRP in plasma, serum or other biological fluid samples. The kit has detection sensitivity limit of 1 ng/mL human CRP. Each kit provides sufficient reagents to perform up to 96 assays including standard curve and unknown samples.
