Case Study
The article offers information on a case study wherein diurnal variability and stability of klotho gene, a transmembrane gene protein in serum was monitored using Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Topics discussed include content klotho protein responsible for renal diseases, collected blood samples were analyzed for protein stability by freeze thawing and statistical analysis of median values.
