Sheep anti Human Tamm Horsfall Glycoprotein antibody recognizes human Tamm Horsfall Protein (THP), also known as uromodulin (Pennica et al. 1987). THP was originally isolated from normal human urine (Tamm et al. 1952). THP is a 616 amino acid ~85 kDa glycoprotein synthesized by the kidney and is the most abundant urinary protein in healthy individuals (Pennica et al. 1987). THP forms the matrix of all urinary casts either alone (hyaline casts) or in association with cellular fragments and filtered proteins (granular casts), casts are indicative of a number of pathological states including glomerulonephritis and vasculitis (Chambers et al. 1986).

The specificity of sheep anti human Tamm Horsfall glycoprotein antibody has been confirmed by double diffusion against tamm horsfall glycoprotein and an independent known antibody against THP.
