Product Description

Desmosine

Application Notes

Desmosine is responsible for the cross-linking of elastin leading to the formation of insoluble fibers. Urinary excretion of desmosine is a useful indicator of elastin breakdown resulting from increased elastase activity. It also acts as a biomarker of elastin degradation in chronic obstructive.
