  • Product overview

    Abcam’s TGF beta 2 Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human TGF beta 2 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human TGF beta 2 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and TGF beta 2 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human TGF beta 2 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 TGF beta 2 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • FunctionTGF-beta 2 has suppressive effects on interleukin-2 dependent T-cell growth.
  • Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving TGFB2 is found in a family with Peters anomaly. Translocation t(1;7)(q41;p21) with HDAC9.
    Defects in TGFB2 are the cause of Loeys-Dietz syndrome 4 (LDS4) [MIM:614816]. An aortic aneurysm syndrome with widespread systemic involvement. LDS4 is characterized by arterial tortuosity, aortic dissection, intracranial aneurysm and subarachnoid hemorrhage, hypertelorism, bifid uvula, pectus deformity, bicuspid aortic valve, arachnodactyly, scoliosis, foot deformities, dural ectasia, joint hyperflexibility, and thin skin with easy bruising and striae.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TGF-beta family.
