Epinephrine Adrenaline ELISA Assay Background
Catecholamine is the name of a group of aromatic amines (noradrenaline, adrenaline, dopamine, and their derivatives) which act as hormones and neurotransmitters, respectively. Adrenaline and noradrenaline are formed from dopamine. They act on the cardiac musculature and the metabolism (adrenaline) as well as on the peripheral circulation (noradrenaline) and help the body to cope with acute and chronic stress.
An increased production of catecholamines can be found with tumors of the chromaffine system (pheochromocytoma, neuroblastoma, ganglioneuroma). Studies show that an increased or decreased concentration of the catecholamines can also be found with hypertension, degenerative cardiac diseases, schizophrenia and manic-depressive psychosis.
This kit provides materials for the quantitative measurement of adrenaline in plasma and urine. Adrenaline is extracted using a cis-diol-specific affinity gel and acylated to N-acyladrenaline and then converted enzymatically into N-acylmetanephrine.
