  • Product overview

    Abcam’s PGF High Sensitivity in vitro competitive ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the accurate quantitative measurement of PGF in milk, culture supernatants, saliva, urine, serum and plasma.

    A donkey anti-sheep IgG antibody has been precoated onto 96-well plates. Standards or test samples are added to the wells, along with an alkaline phosphatase (AP) conjugated-PGF antigen and a polyclonal sheep antibody specific to PGF. After incubation the excess reagents are washed away. pNpp substrate is added and after a short incubation the enzyme reaction is stopped and the yellow color generated is read at 405 nm. The intensity of the yellow coloration is inversely proportional to the amount of PGF captured in the plate.

  • Notes

    Prostaglandin F (PGF) is formed in a variety of cells from PGH2, which itself is synthesized from arachidonic acid by the enzyme prostaglandin synthetase. PGF is often viewed as an antagonist to PGE2 due to their opposing effects on various tissues. PGF is a potent bronchoconstrictor and has been implicated in asthma attacks. PGF is also involved in reproductive functions including corpus luteum regulation, uterine contractions, and sperm motility. This has led to its use in terminating pregnancies and inducing labor at term. High levels of PGF have also been associated with preeclampsia.

I am sorry for the confusion.

I meant the sample which have low levels of PGF2a. Your statement is indeed correct.

Thank you for contacting us.

The kit is suitable for both plasma and serum.

The extraction is not mandatory; it is advised for samples with low level PGF2a.

The extracted sample can be stored for months at -80C.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
