  • Product overview

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

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

    Vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs), also known as vasculotropins, are a family of closely related growth factors having a conserved pattern of eight cysteine residues and sharing common VEGF receptors. VEGFs stimulate the proliferation of endothelial cells, induce angiogenesis, promote cell migration, increase vascular permeability, and inhibit apoptosis. The mitogenic activity of VEGFs appears to be mediated by specific VEGF receptors. The target cell specificity of VEGF is restricted to vascular endothelial cells. Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor C (VEGFC) is a member of the VEGF subfamily of PDGF-related growth factors. It is the ligand for Flt4 (VEGFR3) and KDR (VEGFR2). VEGFC binds Flt4 and induces tyrosine autophosphorylation of VEGFR3 and VEGFR2. VEGFC also stimulates the migration of bovine capillary endothelial cells in collagen gel. It is a specific growth factor for the lymphatic vascular system and mediates lymphangiogenesis. VEGFC is abundantly expressed in heart and skeletal muscle. Other tissues such as lung and kidney also express VEGFC.

Vielen Dank für Ihren Anruf.

Leider ist es so, wie ich befürchtet habe, wir können leider keine Angabe zu diesen Kits mit HepG2 Zellen, bzw mit anderen Leberzelllinien machen. Grundsätzlich spricht aber nichts gegen die Ver...
