HT BPDE ELISA Kit and Monoclonal Antibody
Benzo(a)pyrene (BP) is a widespread environmental pollutant found in cigarette smoke, charred food, exhaust from internal combustion engines and coal-burning factories. A highly reactive diol epoxide derivative, BPDE, is the metabolite involved in covalent binding to DNA and proteins. The formation of BPDE adducts is associated with increased risk of lung and breast cancer. Trevigen offers a HT BPDE ELISA Kit and monoclonal antibody that quantifies BPDE adducts in plasma, serum and cell culture supernatant samples.
