Human Utrophin kit
- Highly specific
- Faster and more convenient than ELISA
Utrophin is an autosomally-encoded 376-kDa cytoskeletal protein that is similar in structure and function to dystrophin. It is an ubiquitously expressed protein that plays a role in anchoring the cytoskeleton to the plasma membrane. Utrophin is highly expressed in developing muscle and is enriched at the neuromuscular junction of mature muscle. In Duchenne's muscular dystrophy patients, dystrophin is lacking and utrophin is consequently up-regulated and redistributed to locations normally occupied by dystrophin. The utrophin kit is designed for a rapid detection in cell lysates.
