Quantitative assay of trypsinogen by measurement of cleaved activation peptide after activation with enterokinase

Anal Biochem. 1995 Sep 20;230(2):348-50. doi: 10.1006/abio.1995.1486.


Measurement of trypsinogen by quantitative immunosorbent assay of the highly specific and inert trypsinogen activation peptide following complete activation of trypsinogen by enterokinase offers a simple and sensitive method that provides reliable results over a wide range of trypsinogen concentrations. This method offers a significant advantage in being applicable to complex biological tissues.
