  • Product overview

    Abcam’s NGF R (CD271) Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay designed for the quantitative measurement of Human NGF R (CD271) in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

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

  • Relevance

    Plays a role in the regulation of the translocation of GLUT4 to the cell surface in adipocytes and skeletal muscle cells in response to insulin, probably by regulating RAB31 activity, and thereby contributes to the regulation of insulin-dependent glucose uptake (By similarity). Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells. Necessary for the circadian oscillation of the clock genes ARNTL/BMAL1, PER1, PER2 and NR1D1 in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN) of the brain and in liver and of the genes involved in glucose and lipid metabolism in the liver.
