Human neutrophil lipocalin (HNL) is a newly discovered protein from human neutrophil secretory granules. A double-antibody radioimmunoassay (RIA) was developed for the measurement of HNL in various body fluids and its high specificity was confirmed by the absence of cross-reaction with other granulocyte granule proteins. The RIA measures HNL within the… CONTINUE READING
