Uromodulin

Incubated Uromodulin ELISA

The glycoprotein uromodulin, also known as Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP), is synthesised exclusively in the kidneys and subsequently secreted. Low uromodulin concentrations in serum are a sensitive indicator for a loss of kidney function and thus play a role in the diagnosis of various renal diseases (nephropathies). When renal function is impaired, the uromodulin concentration in the serum sinks rapidly. Therefore, renal functional disorders can be identified at a very early stage of kidney damage, even in cases with few symptoms.

The determination of uromodulin is suitable for e.g. monitoring of kidney vitality during therapy and as a predictive marker after kidney transplantation. The Uromodulin ELISA can be fully automated.
