  • Product overview

    Abcam’s FGF4 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human FGF4 in plasma and cell culture supernatants.  (Human FGF4 concentration is pretty low in normal plasma, it may not be detected in this assay).

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human FGF4 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and FGF4 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human FGF4 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 FGF4 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

    We have not been able to detect the endogenous Human FGF4 in normal serum with ab100516, only in serum spiked with Human FGF4.

  • RelevanceFGF4 is a heparin binding growth factor that is a member of the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF4 signals through the FGFR 1c, 2c, 3c, and 4.
