Monitoring Bone Loss Using Elisa and Surface Plasmon Resonance (Spr) Technology
Osteoporosis influences the health of the females who are in menopause phase. The techniques to detect the markers of bone turnover is very important for preventing osteoporosis. ELISA was developed for detection of urinary N-telopeptide (NTx) as an osteoporosis marker. Our aim is to develop a sensitive method to detect NTx excretion using surface plasmon resonance (SPR). Samples collected were assayed and results suggest that our SPR-based method is promising for monitoring bone loss.

- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
