Usage : The Progesterone ELISA kit is used for the quantitative measurement of Progesterone in human serum or plasma.

Description : Progesterone is a C21 steroid which is synthesized from both tissue and circulating cholesterol.  Cholesterol is transformed to Progesterone which is then converted via a combined dehydrogenase and isomerase to progesterone.  The principle production sites are the adrenals and ovaries and the placenta during pregnancy.  The majority of this steroid is metabolized in the liver to pregnanediol and conjugated as a glucuronide prior to excretion by the kidneys. Progesterone exhibits a wide variety of end organ effects. The primary role of progesterone is exhibited by the reproductive organs.  In males, progesterone is a necessary intermediate for the production of corticosteroids and androgens.  In females, progesterone remains relatively constant throughout the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle.  The concentration then increases rapidly following ovulation and remains elevated for 4-6 days and decreases to the initial level 24 hours before the onset of menstruation.  In pregnancy, placental progesterone production rises steadily to levels of 10 to 20 times those of the luteal phase peak. Progesterone measurements are thus performed to determine ovulation as well as to characterize luteal phase defects.  Monitoring of progesterone therapy and early stage pregnancy evaluations comprise the remaining uses of progesterone assays. Progesterone EIA kits are designed for the measurement of total progesterone in human serum or plasma.
