  • Product overview

    Abcam’s VEGF Rat ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Rat VEGF in cell lysates and tissue lysates.

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

  • RelevanceVEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor) is a homodimeric, disulfide-linked glycoprotein involved in angiogenesis which promotes tumor progression and metastasis. It exhibits potent mitogenic and permeability inducing properties specific for the vascular endothelium. Of the four isoforms of VEGF, the smaller two, VEGF 165 and VEGF 121, are secreted proteins and act as diffusible agents, whereas the larger two (VEGF 189 and VEGF 206) remain cell associated.

The BCA total protein assay will be fine with our lysis buffer. In fact, we use it all the time in our lab to determine the total protein in lysate samples. To my knowledge, the Bradford assay is the only total protein assay which is http://en.wikipedi...
