  • Product overview

    Abcam’s PF4 Mouse ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of mouse PF4 in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for mouse PF4 coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and PF4 present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse PF4 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 PF4 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


  • FunctionReleased during platelet aggregation. Neutralizes the anticoagulant effect of heparin because it binds more strongly to heparin than to the chondroitin-4-sulfate chains of the carrier molecule. Chemotactic for neutrophils and monocytes. Inhibits endothelial cell proliferation, the short form is a more potent inhibitor than the longer form.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intercrine alpha (chemokine CxC) family.
  • Post-translational
    Binds non-covalently to a proteoglycan molecule.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

The lab let me know that sodium citrate is also an acceptable anti-coagulant.
