  • Product overview

    PEDF in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of PEDF protein in human serum, plasma (citrate), and cell supernatant.

    The 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. TMB Development Solution is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

    Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF), encoded by the SERPINF1 gene, is a neurotrophic secreted protein with multiple functions.  PEDF is a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis, possess antitumorigenic effects, and displays neurotrophic functions such as neuronal differentiation. With a wide variety of functions, studies have suggested PEDF to play a strong clinical role in choroidal neovascularization, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, and several more.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Neurotrophic protein; induces extensive neuronal differentiation in retinoblastoma cells. Potent inhibitor of angiogenesis. As it does not undergo the S (stressed) to R (relaxed) conformational transition characteristic of active serpins, it exhibits no serine protease inhibitory activity.
  • Tissue specificity

    Retinal pigment epithelial cells and blood plasma.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the serpin family.
  • Developmental stage

    Expressed in quiescent cells.
  • Domain

    The N-terminal (AA 44-121) exhibits neurite outgrowth-inducing activity. The C-terminal exposed loop (AA 382-418) is essential for serpin activity.
  • Post-translational

    The N-terminus is blocked. Extracellular phosphorylation enhances antiangiogenic activity.
    N- and O-glycosylated. O-glycosylated with a core 1 or possibly core 8 glycan.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted. Melanosome. Enriched in stage I melanosomes.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab246535 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • 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.


  • The PEDF standard curve was prepared as described in Section 10. Raw data values are shown in the table. Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of PEDF were measured in duplicates, interpolated from the PEDF standard curves and corrected for sample dilution. Undiluted samples are as follows: serum 1:1000, plasma (citrate) 1:1000, and HEPG2 cell culture supernatant 5%. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean PEDF concentration was determined to be 22.3 µg/mL in serum, 19.87 µg/mL in plasma (citrate) and 0.448 µg/mL in and HEPG2 cell culture supernatant.
