Secretory leukocyte proteinase inhibitor (SLPI; also known as antileukoprotease or ALP) is a 11.7 kDa cationic inhibitor of neutrophil elastase and to a lesser extent of cathepsin G. It is locally produced by epithelial cells in the lung, skin and other organs and by PMN and (in mice) by macrophages. In addition to its proteinase inhibitory properties that may serve to protect against proteolytic injury, it was recently shown that SLPI also displays several other functions such as antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities. These appear to be independent of its ability to inhibit PMN serine proteinases. SLPI has also been demonstrated to display antibacterial and antifungal activity at concentrations in which SLPI is present in mucosal secretions including those of the lung. Another possible role for SLPI is inhibition of protein disulphide isomerase that is considered essential for invasion of a cell by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). Serum/plasma and urine of healthy individuals contains 50-80 ng/ml and 4 ng/ml respectively. Sputum of healthy individuals contains approximately 66 µg/ml.

Application
The human SLPI ELISA kit is to be used for the in vitro quantitative determination of human SLPI in serum, plasma, urine, sputum, BALF and cell culture supernatant samples.

Principle
The human SLPI ELISA is a ready-to-use solid-phase enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay based on the sandwich principle with a working time of 3½ hours. The efficient format of 2 plates with twelve disposable 8-well strips allows free choice of batch size for the assay. Samples and standards are captured by a solid bound specific antibody. Biotinylated tracer antibody will bind to captured human SLPI. Streptavidin-peroxidase conjugate will bind to the biotinylated tracer antibody. Streptavidin-peroxidase conjugate will react with the substrate, tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The enzyme reaction is stopped by the addition of oxalic acid. The absorbance at 450 nm is measured with a spectrophotometer. A standard curve is obtained by plotting the absorbance (linear) versus the corresponding concentrations of the human SLPI standards (log). The human SLPI concentration of samples, which are run concurrently with the standards, can be determined from the standard curve.
