Infection, Trauma & Septic Shock Antibodies



Anti-Procalcitonin antibodies detect human Procalcitonin. Procalcitonin is a peptide hormone mainly produced by the C cells of the thyroid and certain endocrine cells of the lung. Under normal expression conditions, procalcitonin is immediately cleaved into three specific fragments, an N terminal residue, calcitonin, and katacalcin. Serum levels of unprocessed procalcitonin rise significantly after bacterial infection, trauma, or shock. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
