Description

The Mouse FGF2 (bFGF) ELISA quantitates Ms FGF2 in mouse serum, plasma, or cell culture medium. The assay will exclusively recognize both natural and recombinant Ms FGF2. Principle of the method The Mouse FGF2 solid-phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) is designed to measure the amount of the target bound between a matched antibody pair. A target-specific antibody has been pre-coated in the wells of the supplied microplate. Samples, standards, or controls are then added into these wells and bind to the immobilized (capture) antibody. The sandwich is formed by the addition of the second (detector) antibody, a substrate solution is added that reacts with the enzyme-antibody-target complex to produce measurable signal. The intensity of this signal is directly proportional to the concentration of target present in the original specimen. Rigorous validation Each manufactured lot of this ELISA kit is quality tested for criteria such as sensitivity, specificity, precision, and lot-to-lot consistency. See manual for more information on validation.

FGF2 (FGFb, fibroblast growth factor basic) belongs to the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family, and interacts with high-affinity transmembrane receptors to influence cell proliferation and tissue neovascularization. FGF2 exists as five isoforms with distinct intracellular localizations and functions. The 18 kDa isoform is predominantly cytosolic and acts through cell surface receptors, whereas the 22, 22.5, 24 and 34 kDa isoforms are nuclear and may signal independent of transmembrane receptor pathways. In humans, the gene is located on the q arm of chromosome 4. FGF2 has been implicated in diverse biological processes, such as limb and nervous system development, wound healing, and tumor growth. The mRNA for FGF2 contains multiple polyadenylation sites, and is alternatively translated from non-AUG and AUG initiation codons, resulting in five different isoforms with distinct properties. The CUG-initiated isoforms are localized in the nucleus and are responsible for the intracrine effect, whereas, the AUG-initiated form is mostly cytosolic and is responsible for the paracrine and autocrine effects of this FGF. Diseases associated with FGF2 dysfunction include Kaposi Sarcoma and corneal neovascularization.
