Human COMP ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human COMP ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human COMP in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Cartilage oligomeric matrix protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the COMP gene. The sequences of rat and bovine COMP indicate that it is a member of the thrombospondin gene family. By Southern blot analysis of a somatic cell hybrid DNA panel and by isotopic in situ hybridization, human COMP gene was mapped to 19p13.1, and the murine COMP gene was mapped to the central region of mouse chromosome 8 by use of an interspecific backcross mapping panel. COMP is a marker of cartilage turnover.
