Dihydro-Testosterone ELISA Kit Background Information
5a-dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a steroid similar to testosterone and androstenedione, which belong to a class called androgens. DHT is a C19 steroid and possesses androgenic activity. The bulk of androgen production takes place mainly in the Leydig cells of the testes. Androgens circulate in the blood bound to proteins, especially sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG) and albumin. A trace amount of these steroids circulate in the unbound form in the blood and are referred to as the free fractions. DHT has at least three times the binding affinity for SHBG than testosterone. In males about 70% of DHT is derived from peripheral conversion of testosterone, while in females most of the DHT is derived from androstenedione.The major organ to neutralize androgens is the liver. Therefore in the liver the steroid hormones undergo structural modifications that are generally regarded as prerequisites for their biological inactivation.

Dihydro-Testosterone EIA Test Principle
The principle of the Dihydro-Testosterone ELISA kit enzyme immunoassay test follows the typical competitive binding scenario. Competition occurs between an unlabeled antigen (present in standards, control and patient samples) and an enzyme-labeled antigen (conjugate) for a limited number of antibody binding sites on the microwell. The washing and decanting procedures remove unbound materials. After the washing step, the enzyme substrate is added. The enzymatic reaction is terminated by addition of the stopping solution. The absorbance is measured on a microtiter plate reader. The intensity of the color formed is inversely proportional to the concentration of DHT in the sample. A set of standards is used to plot a standard curve from which the amount of DHT in patient samples and controls can be directly read.

Product Note:

 This assay employs the competitive inhibition enzyme immunoassay technique. The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with goat-anti-rabbit antibody. Standards or samples are added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with an antibody specific for DHT and Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) conjugated DHT. The competitive inhibition reaction is launched between with HRP labeled DHT and unlabeled DHT with the antibody. A substrate solution is added to the wells and the color develops in opposite to the amount of DHT in the sample. The color development is stopped and the intensity of the color is measured.
