Eagle Biosciences is now offering two new kits, S-Adenosyl-L-Methionine (SAM) ELISA Assay Kit and S-Adenosyl-L-homocysteine (SAH) ELISA Assay Kit to the North American research market. S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) is a critical metabolite in most living organisms and is formed by a conversion of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) and methionine, an amino acid with a sulfur methyl group after transsulfuration occurs. S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH) is created by the transfer of a methyl group away from SAM, is then further metabolized with the removal of adenosine and is converted into homocysteine (Hcy). SAM and SAH play a large part in the methionine cycle and have been recognized for important roles in Parkinson’s Disease, depression, liver disease, arthritis/joint pain, fibromyalgia, AIDS-related myelopathy, and atherosclerosis respectively.
Dan Keefe, President of Eagle Biosciences, is very excited about both of these kits.“These assays are coming at a perfect time as we continue to grow our neurobiology product line and I feel that they will compliment this assay grouping well. He continues, “They are developed and manufactured in the USA, simple to run, have short incubation times, and provide valuable results for assessing the functionality of the methionine cycle and monitoring their metabolic pathways.”
