  • Product overview

    The Human TGFBR3 Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213837) is designed for the quantitative measurement of Human TGFBR3 in cell culture supernatants, cell lysates, tissue homogenates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA). 

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from mouse specific for TGFBR3 has been pre-coated onto 96-well plates. Standards (NSO, G21-D781) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for TGFBR3 is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex is added and unbound conjugates are washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB is used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB is catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the Human TGFBR3 amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Notes

    Betaglycan also known as Transforming growth factor beta receptor III (TGFBR3), is a cell surface chondroitin sulfate / heparan sulfate proteoglycan >300 kDa in molecular weight. Betaglycan binds to various members of the TGF-beta superfamily of ligands via its core protein, and bFGF via its heparan sulfate chains. It is not involved directly in TGF-beta signal transduction but by binding to various member of the TGF-beta superfamily at the cell surface it acts as a reservoir of ligand for TGF-beta receptors. By cDNA array and immunohistochemistry analyses, it is found that TGFBR3 expression is lost in most breast cancers examined in association with loss of heterozygosity of the TGFBR3 locus. TGFBR3 expression decreased during breast cancer progression, and low levels predicted decreased recurrence-free survival in patients. Loss of TGFBR3 through allelic imbalance is a frequent genetic event during breast cancer development that increases metastatic potential. Also, TGFBR3 can localize transformation in the heart and play an essential, non redundant role in TGF beta signaling.
