Vasopressin (AVP) RIA Test

Description: Arginine vasopressin (AVP), also known as Antidiurectic Hormone (ADH), is synthesized in the hypothalamus and is transported via exonal flow to the posterior pituitary for storage and eventual release. AVP secretion is regulated by changes in blood osmolality and also by baroreceptors that respond ...
Company:Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Inc.

Aldosterone RIA Test

Description: Aldosterone is produced in the adrenal cortex and is the most potent mineralocorticoid in humans. Aldosterone secretion appears to be stimulated primarily through the renin-angiotensin system, in which decreased plasma sodium chloride concentrations lead to increased renin secretion and activation ...
Company:Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Inc.

Androstanediol Glucuronide RIA Test

Description: Androstanediol glucuronide (3alpha-diol G) is the glucuronide conjugate of 3alpha-androstanediol, a major metabolite of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) [1,2]. 3alpha-diol G has strong androgenic activity estimated at 75% of the bioactivity of testosterone [2]. Serum 3alpha-diol G is the product of intrac...
Company:Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Inc.

IGFBP-2 RIA Test

Description: Human Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-2 (IGFBP-2) is one of six characterized IGFBPs (further IGFBPs have been proposed) which specifically bind and modulate the actions of IGF-I and IGF-II.

Company:Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Inc.

Erythropoietin RIA Test

Description: Erythropoietin (EPO) is the primary known naturally-occurring stimulant of red blood cell production. The predicted molecular weight of human EPO is 18.2 kDa. Due to N-glycosylation, the circulating form of EPO has an estimated molecular mass of ~30.5 kDa. Although EPO itself appears to have a uniq...
Company:Diagnostic Systems Laboratories, Inc.

ACTH RIA Test

Description: ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) is synthesized in the pars distalis of the anterior pituitary gland and is secreted into the peripheral circulation, where it has a half-life of approximately 20 minutes [1].
