STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Elafin, also known as peptidase inhibitor 3 (PI3) or skin-derived antileukoprotease (SKALP), has 38% identity with the second domain of secretory leukocyte proteinase inhibitor. Elafin has been found to have utility in serving as a biomarker for graft versus host disease of the skin and plays some role in gut inflammation, typical of celiac disease (gluten intolerance).
