Human Chromogranin A EIA Kit and related products


Chromogranin A (CgA) is an acidic secretory protein, consisting of 439 amino acid in human. The protein is found in a wide variety of hormone and neurotransmitter storage vesicles, and it is known to be co-stored and co-released with catecholamines from adrenal medulla and sympathetic neuronal vesicles during exocytosis. O’Conner and Bernstein have first reported radioimmunological measurement of CgA in human plasma under conditions of physiologic, pharmacologic and pathologic alteration of sympathoadrenal function. Nakane et al. recently discovered that CgA-LI exists in saliva, the concentration of which elevates rapidly under psychosomatic stress even prior to the elevation of salivary cortisol level. Subsequently, Kanno et al. presented an evidence for autonomic control of submandibular CgA-LI secretion in the anaesthetized rat.

Yanaihara Institute Inc. succeeded in developing, for the first time, a specific, sensitive, stable and easy manipulative enzyme immunoassay (EIA) system for measurement of human CgA-LI using anti-synthetic human CgA(344-374) antibody, synthetic human CgA(344-374) as standard antigen and Na-biotinylglycylglycyl human CgA(344-374) as labeled antigen. The assay kit now available from the Institute can be used for measurement of CgA-LI in human biological fluid such as plasma, urine and saliva.

The amino acid sequence of human CgA(344-374) :


The present assay kit is provided for quantitative measurement of CgA-LI in human plasma, urine and saliva. The measurement can be carried out in a simple manner within 2 days. The assay system is proved to be highly specific to human CgA and scarcely interfered by other components co-existing in biological samples used for CgA measurement.
Since the standard antigen in the assay kit is synthetic material, its high purity (over 98%) is guaranteed and the content indicated is the adsolute weight of the antigen. Na-biotinylglycylglycyl human CgA(344-374)is used as labeled antigen which is proved to be stable.
