  • Product overview

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

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

  • Relevance
    FGF basic (FGF2) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members bind heparin and possess broad mitogenic and angiogenic activities. FGF2 is involved in diverse biological processes, such as limb and nervous system development, wound healing, and tumor growth. FGF2 mRNA contains multiple polyadenylation sites, and is alternatively translated from AUG and non-AUG (CUG) initiation codons resulting in five different isoforms with distinct properties. The CUG-initiated isoforms are localized in the nucleus and are responsible for the intracrine effect, whereas, the AUG-initiated form is mostly cytosolic and is responsible for the paracrine and autocrine effects of this FGF.

Thank you for your email.

I assume you are looking for a lysis buffer because you wish to test cell or tissue lysates samples with the kit? If so, please note that the ab100670 kit has not been validated with lysate samples, only serum, plasm...

Thank you for contacting us. We do not currently sell any ELISA kits that are specifically designed for use on rat samples. After checking with the lab, our mouse and human ELISA kits for these targets will be unlikely to cross-react with rat, but have...

Thank you very much for contacting us.

Unfortunately, epitope mapping of the two antibody pairs has not been performed, so we do not know the exact amino acid sequence recognised and if these regions are specific for human and mouse, respect...

Thank you for your phone call today. I have heard back from my contact at the laboratory, and I was told that the ELISA plates come pre-blocked so a blocking step is not necessary.  I hope this information is helpful, but please let me know if y...
