17-OH progesterone ELISA kit

REF 20-03

The 17-OH-Progesterone ELISA kit is intended for quantitative determination of 17-OH progesterone in human serum and human plasma.

17-OH-progesterone (17-OHP) is a steroid hormone produced by suprarenal gland cortex and sex glands. The measurement of 17 OHP in serum can be used to monitor the activity of 21-hydroxylase of the suprarenal gland cortex.  Deficiencies in 21-hydroxylase that are most commonly found in congenital adrenal hyperplasia result in excessive secretion of 17-OHP. However, deficiencies in 11-hydroxylase lead to moderately increase of the 17-OHP level. Therefore, the analysis of 17-OHP plays a significant role in the differential diagnostics of congenital hyperplasia of suprarenal gland cortex.

In addition, levels of 17-OHP are influenced by circadian rhythm and correlate with the adrenal secretion of cortisol. Maximal levels are found in samples collected in the morning.
