Enzyme Immunoassay for the
Quantitative Determination of
Progesterone Concentration in
The progesterone EIA is based on the principle of Human Serum

Unbound progesterone peroxidase conjugate is then Progesterone is a C21 steroid which is synthesized from removed and the wells washed. Next, a solution of TMB both tissue and circulating cholesterol. Cholesterol is Reagent is then added and incubated at room transformed to pregnenolone which is then converted via temperature for 20 minutes, resulting in the development a combined dehydrogenase and isomerase to of blue color. The color development is stopped with the progesterone. The principle production sites are the addition of Stop Solution, and the absorbance is adrenals and ovaries and the placenta during pregnancy. measured spectrophotometrically at 450 nm. The The majority of this steroid is metabolized in the liver to intensity of the color formed is proportional to the pregnanediol and conjugated as a glucuronide prior to amount of enzyme present and is inversely related to the amount of unlabeled progesterone in the sample. A standard curve is obtained by plotting the concentration Progesterone exhibits a wide variety of end organ of the standard versus the absorbance. The effects. The primary role of progesterone is exhibited by progesterone concentration of the specimens and the reproductive organs. In males, progesterone is a controls run concurrently with the standards can be necessary intermediate for the production of corticosteroids and androgens.
