  • Product overview

    Fibronectin in vitro CatchPoint® SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Fibronectin protein in human serum, plasma, milk, cell culture supernatant, and cell and tissue extract samples.


    This CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA kit has been optimized for Molecular Devices Microplate Readers. Click here for a list of recommended Microplate Readers.
    If using a Molecular Devices’ plate reader supported by SoftMax® Pro software, a preconfigured protocol for these CatchPoint SimpleStep ELISA Kits is available with all the protocol and analysis settings at www.softmaxpro.org.


    The CatchPoint® SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material.  CatchPoint HRP Development Solution containing the Stoplight Red Substrate is added. During incubation, the substrate is catalyzed by HRP generating a fluorescent product. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured in a fluorescence plater reader at 530/570/590 nm Excitation/Cutoff/Emission.

  • Notes

    Fibronectin is a large glycoprotein present in the extracellular matrix and circulating plasma. Fibronectin is important in many cell adhesion and migration related processes, including wound healing, embryogenesis and nerve regeneration. Differential expression of fibronectin is seen in coronary heart disease, glomerulopathy and tumor cell metastasis. The protein contains binding sites for collagen, heparin and fibrin and is a specific ligand for several integrin adhesion receptors. Fibronectin exists as a dimer or multimer.

  • Function

    Fibronectins bind cell surfaces and various compounds including collagen, fibrin, heparin, DNA, and actin. Fibronectins are involved in cell adhesion, cell motility, opsonization, wound healing, and maintenance of cell shape. Involved in osteoblast compaction through the fibronectin fibrillogenesis cell-mediated matrix assembly process, essential for osteoblast mineralization. Participates in the regulation of type I collagen deposition by osteoblasts.
    Anastellin binds fibronectin and induces fibril formation. This fibronectin polymer, named superfibronectin, exhibits enhanced adhesive properties. Both anastellin and superfibronectin inhibit tumor growth, angiogenesis and metastasis. Anastellin activates p38 MAPK and inhibits lysophospholipid signaling.
  • Tissue specificity

    Plasma FN (soluble dimeric form) is secreted by hepatocytes. Cellular FN (dimeric or cross-linked multimeric forms), made by fibroblasts, epithelial and other cell types, is deposited as fibrils in the extracellular matrix. Ugl-Y1, Ugl-Y2 and Ugl-Y3 are found in urine.
  • Involvement in disease

    Glomerulopathy with fibronectin deposits 2
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 12 fibronectin type-I domains.
    Contains 2 fibronectin type-II domains.
    Contains 16 fibronectin type-III domains.
  • Developmental stage

    Ugl-Y1, Ugl-Y2 and Ugl-Y3 are present in the urine from 0 to 17 years of age.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Sulfated.
    It is not known whether both or only one of Thr-2064 and Thr-2065 are/is glycosylated.
    Forms covalent cross-links mediated by a transglutaminase, such as F13A or TGM2, between a glutamine and the epsilon-amino group of a lysine residue, forming homopolymers and heteropolymers (e.g. fibrinogen-fibronectin, collagen-fibronectin heteropolymers).
    Phosphorylated by FAM20C in the extracellular medium.
    Proteolytic processing produces the C-terminal NC1 peptide, anastellin.

  • SimpleStep ELISA technology allows the formation of the antibody-antigen complex in one single step, reducing assay time to 90 minutes. Add samples or standards and antibody mix to wells all at once, incubate, wash, and add your final substrate. See protocol for a detailed step-by-step guide.
