1-f) CETP Measurement

Cholesteryl ester tranfer protein (CETP) is one of the lipid transfer proteins, which mediates the transfer of cholesteryl ester (CE), triglyceride (TG) and phospholipids between lipoproteins.1) CETP facilitates the transfer of CE from high-density lipoprotein (HDL) to very-low-density lipoprotein (VLDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and also the transfer of TG from VLDL and LDL to HDL.2) The clinical signifi cance of CETP has been controversial.3)~7) Wako supplies two kind of CETP monoclonal antibody as well as the ELISA Kit, which is based on the sandwich enzyme immunoassay measures CETP mass.
1. Easy determination of human serum CETP
2. High linearity by 4.8 μg/mL
3. 4-hour procedure
