Human Ficolin-2 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human Ficolin-2 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human Ficolin-2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin).
Ficolin-2, which was initially identified as L-ficolin, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FCN2 gene. The product of this gene belongs to the ficolin family of proteins. This family is characterized by the presence of a leader peptide, a short N-terminal segment, followed by a collagen-like region, and a C-terminal fibrinogen-like domain. It is mapped to 9q34.3. This gene is predominantly expressed in the liver, and has been shown to have carbohydrate binding and opsonic activities. Serum concentration of ficolin-2 varies considerably in healthy individuals. FCN2 promoter polymorphisms were associated with marked changes in theficolin-2 serum concentration.
