Biomarker for Metabolic Syndrome, Liver and Kidney disease! Human AIM/CD5L Assay Kit Newly Released!

We have released #27265 Human AIM/CD5L Assay Kit - IBL.

AIM (Apoptosis Inhibitor of Macrophage) is produced by macrophages that are one of the type of immune cell, and it is a secreted form of protein that is secreted into blood. It was named as “AIM” because of the function that suppresses apoptosis by acting on macrophage.[1] AIM level in serum increases along with obesity and it is taken up by adipose cell. AIM decomposes triglyceride by suppression of Fatty Acid Synthase (FAS).[2] This is because it is suggested that AIM associates with various diseases such metabolic syndrome that is originated lifestyle diseases (arteriosclerosis and diabetes) and fatty liver.[3] [4] In recent studies, it has been reported and suggested that it can be a therapeutic target for acute kidney injuries and liver cancer.[5] [6] AIM binds to pentamer IgM in blood, but as the antibody used in this kit can detect IgM binding form, Total AIM can be quantitatively measured by this kit.[7]
