  • Product overview

    The Mouse VEGF-B Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay (ELISA) kit (ab213897) is designed for the quantitative detection of Mouse VEGF-B in cell culture supernatants, serum and plasma (heparin).

    The ELISA kit is based on standard sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay technology. A monoclonal antibody from rat specific for VEGF-B has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards (Expression system for standard: sf21; Immunogen sequence: Q20-A207 and Q20-R148) and test samples are added to the wells, a biotinylated detection polyclonal antibody from goat specific for VEGF-B is added subsequently and then followed by washing with PBS or TBS buffer. Avidin-Biotin-Peroxidase Complex was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with PBS or TBS buffer. HRP substrate TMB was used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was 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 Mouse VEGF-B amount of sample captured in plate. 

  • Notes

    Vascular endothelial growth factor B also known as VEGF-B is a protein that, in humans, is encoded by the VEGF-B gene. VEGF-B is a growth factor that belongs to the vascular endothelial growth factor family, of which VEGF-A is the best-known member. In contrast to VEGF-A, VEGF-B plays a less pronounced role in the vascular system: Whereas VEGF-A is important for the formation of blood vessels, such as during development or in pathological conditions, VEGF-B seems to play a role only in the maintenance of newly formed blood vessels during pathological conditions. It also plays an important role on several types of neurons. It is important for the protection of neurons in the retina and the cerebral cortex during stroke and of motor neurons during motor neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Growth factor for endothelial cells. VEGF-B167 binds heparin and neuropilin-1 whereas the binding to neuropilin-1 of VEGF-B186 is regulated by proteolysis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in all tissues except liver. Highest levels found in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Post-translational

    VEGF-B186 is O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted. Secreted but remains associated to cells or to the extracellular matrix unless released by heparin.
