Product overview:
KE00002 is a solid phase sandwich Enzyme Linked-Immuno-Sorbent Assay (Sandwich ELISA). The TGF-β1 ELISA kit is to be used to detect and quantify protein levels of endogenous TGF-β1. The assay recognizes human TGF-β1. A polyclonal antibody specific for TGF-β1 has been pre-coated onto the microwells. The TGF-β1 protein in samples is captured by the coated antibody after incubation. Following extensive washing, a monoclonal antibody specific for TGF-β1 is added to detect the captured TGF-β1 protein. For signal development, horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-conjugated antibody is added, followed by Tetramethyl-benzidine (TMB) reagent. Solution containing sulfuric acid is used to stop color development and the color intensity which is proportional to the quantity of bound protein is measurable at 450nm.

Background

TGF-β is a member of the transforming growth factor beta (TGFB) family of cytokines, which are multifunctional peptides that regulate proliferation, differentiation, adhesion, migration, and other functions in many cell types. TGF-β is produced by a number of cell types including regulatory T cells, fibroblasts, epithelial cells, and endothelial cells. TGF-β acts synergistically with TGFA in inducing transformation. It also acts as a negative autocrine growth factor. TGF-β plays an important role in bone remodeling as it is a potent stimulator of osteoblastic bone formation, causing chemotaxis, proliferation and differentiation in committed osteoblasts. TGF-β appears to promote late stage progression and metastasis in some cancers.
