  • Product overview

    Abcam’s IGFBP5 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Mouse IGFBP5 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse IGFBP5 coated on a 96- well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and IGFBP5 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse IGFBP5 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 IGFBP5 bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: Sandwich ELISAmore details
  • PlatformMicroplate


  • 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.
  • Tissue specificityOsteosarcoma, and at lower levels in liver, kidney and brain.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 thyroglobulin type-1 domain.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
