  • Product overview

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

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

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Growth factor that plays an essential role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell migration, survival and chemotaxis. Potent mitogen for cells of mesenchymal origin. Required for normal proliferation and recruitment of pericytes and vascular smooth muscle cells in the central nervous system, skin, lung, heart and placenta. Required for normal blood vessel development, and for normal development of kidney glomeruli. Plays an important role in wound healing. Signaling is modulated by the formation of heterodimers with PDGFA.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed at high levels in the heart, brain (sustantia nigra), placenta and fetal kidney. Expressed at moderate levels in the brain (hippocampus), skeletal muscle, kidney and lung.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving PDGFB is found in dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Translocation t(17;22)(q22;q13) with PDGFB.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted. Released by platelets upon wounding.

Thank you for your reply.

We do have 10 kDa spin colums for ultrafiltration available as ab93349 and concentration kits available, as well. I'm not exactly sure how you would like to concentrate your samples, but here is the link to our current kit offering:


I hope this information helps. Please contact us with any other questions.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Please find the answers to your questions below

1 - Will FCS interfer with the assay signal?
No. However, since serum-containing media does contain cytokines, I would recommend that the you also run an uncultured media blank sample to assess the media’s baseline response.
2 - Can you use froxen supernatent or does it have to be fresh?
Frozen cell culture supernatant samples are fine.
3 - Signal was weak after 2.5hrs incubation at room tem. Will overnight at 4C help?
Performing the standard/sample incubation step overnight is the most effective way increase the overall plate signal. There are also other steps that can tried, which I have listed below.

Increase amount of biotinylated antibody (by 1.5 fold or so – too much may increase background)
Increase amount of HRP-streptavidin (by about 1.5 fold or so – too much may increase background)
Concentrate sample in a non-denaturing method (for example, using a chilled spin column)

Please note: it’s best to try just one of these modifications at a time. Implementing too many of these changes at once may cause high background.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you for your telephone call yesterday afternoon.

I have contacted my colleagues who have informed me that we have some website and administration changes taking place this week, so regrettably I am not able to do this for you today. However, I should be able to arrange this for you later in the week or early next week and let you know the product code and cost.

Could you confirm you would still want to go ahead and order this?

I appreciate your patience and look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for your enquiry. From the search results you have provided, I can confirm that the following PDGF ELISA kits are tested on cell culture samples and will be suitable for this sample type. I can suggest to select one that has been tested in the species the customer will be testing. ab100622 PDGF AA Human ELISA Kit ab100623 PDGF AB Human ELISA Kit ab100624 PDGF BB Human ELISA Kit ab100625 PDGF BB Human ELISA Kit The A and B refer to the subunits and isoforms of the protein. Reviewing the EST expression profiles on the Unigene database, both the A and B subunits are expressed in lung, but A is expressed more than B. However, I can suggest the customer performs a further literature search to confirm this and to obtain more information. Please note that ab100626 included in the search results you provided detects the PDGF beta receptor, not the PDGF itself. I hope this information will be helpful to you. Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
