  • Product overview

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

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

  • FunctionGrowth factor active in angiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration. It binds to the receptor FLT1/VEGFR-1. Isoform PlGF-2 binds NRP1/neuropilin-1 and NRP2/neuropilin-2 in a heparin-dependent manner.
  • Tissue specificityWhile the three isoforms are present in most placental tissues, PlGF-2 is specific to early (8 week) placenta and only PlGF-1 is found in the colon and mammary carcinomas.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • DomainIsoform PlGF-2 contains a basic insert which acts as a cell retention signal.
  • Post-translational
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. The three isoforms are secreted but PlGF-2 appears to remain cell attached unless released by heparin.
