Abcam’s FGF basic (FGF2) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human FGF basic in cell lysates and tissue lysates.
This assay employs an antibody specific for Human 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-Human 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.
Abcam has not and does not intend to apply for the REACH Authorisation of customers’ uses of products that contain European Authorisation list (Annex XIV) substances.
It is the responsibility of our customers to check the necessity of application of REACH Authorisation, and any other relevant authorisations, for their intended uses.

RelevanceFGF 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.

FGF2 measured in tissue lysates showing quantity (pg) per 1 mg of extracted protein. Protein concentration for samples varied from 7 mg/mL to 17 mg/mL. Samples were diluted 200-2000 fold.
FGF2 measured in cell culture lysates showing quantity (pg) per 1 mln cells. Samples with the concentration of 1e7 cells/mL were used. Samples were diluted 200-2000 fold.
