Description

General description

Each vial contains 1 μmole of purified desmosine.

Application

Desmosine chloride is often used in assays for free or urinary desmosine as markers for disease states characterized by elastin degradation (e.g., emphysema). Elastin degradation has shown strong correlation with vascular calcification, and pretreatment with aluminum ions can inhibit the binding of matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) to elastin.

Assays for free or urinary desmosine are often used as markers for disease states characterized by elastin degradation (e.g., emphysema). Conversely, excessive levels of incorporated desmosine are indicators of fibrotic conditions (e.g., cirrhosis).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Desmosine is a polyfunctional amino acid that forms cross-links in mature elastin.

Caution

Extremely hygroscopic

Analysis Note

Calibrated by UV and amino acid analysis.
