Trefoil Factor 3 (TFF3) ELISA

Human Trefoil Factor 3 (TFF3) belongs to the trefoil factor family that also includes Trefoil Factors 1 and 2. It is mainly expressed in gastrointestinal tract, and in the mucous layer of the small and large intestine. Kidney is another major site of TFF3 expression. Overexpression of TFF3 has been reported in patients with various neoplasms including intestinal, pancreatic and prostate carcinomas. It is typically expressed in the lower oesophagus undergoing intestinal metaplasia. Urinary TFF3 protein levels are markedly reduced in response to renal tubular injury. Higher urinary TFF3 levels indicates ongoing repair of damaged kidney. Urinary TFF3 can be a marker of kidney disease. The Human TFF3 ELISA has enhanced BioVendor’s portfolio of diagnostic kits for renal disease, oncology, immune response, infection and inflammation, and metabolic syndrome. The kit is suitable for use with serum, plasma, urine and bronchoalveolar lavage samples.
