Human MANF kit
- Highly specific
- Faster and more convenient than ELISA
Mesencephalic astrocyte-derived neurotrophic factor (MANF) (also recognized as ARMET or arginine-rich mutated in early stages of tumors) belongs to the fourth family of neurotrophic factors. MANF is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) resident protein highly expressed in the developing cortex that plays an important role in protecting and repairing dopaminergic neurons in the rat 6-hydroxydopamine Parkinson disease model. MANF is also involved in protecting against various forms of endoplasmic reticulum stress. The human MANF kit enables the fast detection of MANF in cell supernatants and serum.
