  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IGFBP6 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human IGFBP6 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human IGFBP6 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IGFBP6 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human IGFBP6 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 IGFBP6 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • FunctionIGF-binding proteins prolong the half-life of the IGFs and have been shown to either inhibit or stimulate the growth promoting effects of the IGFs on cell culture. They alter the interaction of IGFs with their cell surface receptors.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 thyroglobulin type-1 domain.
  • Post-translational
    O-linked glycans consist of hexose (probably Gal), N-acetylhexosamine (probably GalNAc) and sialic acid residues. O-glycosylated with core 1 or possibly core 8 glycans. O-glycosylated on one site only in the region AA 143-168 in cerebrospinal fluid.

Thank you and your customer for your inquiry.

Although we have not tested the Human ab100540 and ab100544ELISA kits with ascite fluid,these kits are very accommodating to many different samples types so the ascites will most likely work.
