Intended use

Oxidatively modified lipoproteins (ox-LDLs) play an important role in the progression of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. Low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the main carrier of plasma cholesterol, consists of a hydrophobic core and a surface monolayer of polar lipids and Apolipoprotein-B (ApoB). Oxidative stress and the consequent formation of free radicals lead to the peroxidation of ApoB. Malondialdehyde (MDA) has been identifiedas one of the major lipid peroxidation products of LDL, thus playing an important role in the LDL oxidation.
The MDA ox-LDL ELISA specifically detects MDA-modified Apo B in human serum and plasma.
