  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IGF1 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of mouse IGF1 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse IGF1 coated on a 96- well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IGF1 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse IGF1 antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of IGF1 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

Properties

  • FunctionThe insulin-like growth factors, isolated from plasma, are structurally and functionally related to insulin but have a much higher growth-promoting activity. May be a physiological regulator of [1-14C]-2-deoxy-D-glucose (2DG) transport and glycogen synthesis in osteoblasts. Stimulates glucose transport in rat bone-derived osteoblastic (PyMS) cells and is effective at much lower concentrations than insulin, not only regarding glycogen and DNA synthesis but also with regard to enhancing glucose uptake.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in IGF1 are the cause of insulin-like growth factor I deficiency (IGF1 deficiency) [MIM:608747]. IGF1 deficiency is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by growth retardation, sensorineural deafness and mental retardation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the insulin family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

The capture antibody used in this kit showed no cross-reactivity with human IGF-I and the detection antibody showed less than 0.5%. Thus, we do not believe the IGF1 Mouse ELISA kit will detect human IGF-I.

Regarding the dilution, there is really no way to do a 1000-fold dilution and use < 30 ml of diluent testing 40 samples without doing a 2-step dilution. I’d give the below example of a 2-step dilution to conserve both sample and diluent:

Additional data
Additional Notes: Although this is a Mouse IGF-1 kit, we used it to measure IGF-1 levels in rat plasma samples collected during harvest in EDTA tubes. We had success when samples were diluted 1:5000 prior to assay and the kit appears able to measure rat samples without a problem.

Small volume, serial dilutions of the samples were required to avoid running out of Assay Diluent A for these large dilutions (2ul in 98ul = 50x --> 2ul 50x in 198ul = 5000x)

We had some concern about the standard curve that was produced. We ran the kit on 3 separate occasions and each time the values for standards at low concentrations were quite variable and non-linear. Those of high concentration (>100pg/ml) were consistent and linear. The concentration of our samples (diluted 1:5000) fell in the high/linear portion of the curve.

Yes, ab134464 is the Assay Diluent A that comes with the mouse IGF1 mouse ELISA kit (ab100695).

Also for your information, here is an example of a dilution procedure for using a minimal amount of diluent for a 1:5000 dilution of your samples:...
