MaxDiscovery™ Human VEGF ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ Human VEGF ELISA Test Kit is designed for quantitative determination of the concentration of human VEGF in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant. Human vescular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) is expressed primarily by activated macrophages, keratinocytes, renal glomerular visceral epithelium and mesangial cells, hepatocytes, smooth muscle cells, Leydig cells, embryonic fibroblasts and bronchial and choroid plexus epithelium. It is also expressed by numerous tumor cells. The expression of VEGF is upregulated by phorbol ester, TGF-ß and in hypoxia. The gene for human VEGF is organized into 8 exons. As a result of alternative splicing, at least 4 transcripts encoding mature monomeric VEGF containing 121, 165, 189, and 206 amino acid residues (VEGF121, VEGF165, VEGF189, and VEGF206), each preceded by a 26 amino acid residue signal peptide, have been detected. VEGF121 and VEGF165 are diffusible proteins that are secreted into the medium. VEGF189 and VEGF206 have high affinity for heparin and are mostly bound to heparin-containing proteoglycans in the extracellular matrix. VEGF is a glycoprotein which contains a potential N-linked glycosylation site. E. coli-expressed, recombinant human VEGF is indistinguishable from natural VEGF in its in vitro biological actions, suggesting that the carbohydrate moiety may not be required for its biological activities. VEGF is a highly conserved protein that has cross-species activity. Between human, rat or bovine VEGF, 84 - 94% sequence identity has been observed.

New Tool Uses 'Drug Spillover' to Match Cancer Patients with Treatments
Researchers have developed a new tool that improves the ability to match drugs to disease: the Kinase Addiction Ranker (KAR) predicts what genetics are truly driving the cancer in any population of cells and chooses the best "kinase inhibitor" to silence these dangerous genetic causes of disease.
HIV Susceptibility Linked to Little-Understood Immune Cell Class
High levels of diversity among immune cells called natural killer cells may strongly predispose people to infection by HIV, and may be driven by prior viral exposures, according to a new study.
Sweet Revenge Against Superbugs
A special type of synthetic sugar could be the latest weapon in the fight against superbugs.
Access Denied: Leukemia Thwarted by Cutting Off Link to Environmental Support
A new study reveals a protein’s critical – and previously unknown -- role in the development and progression of acute myeloid leukemia (AML), a fast-growing and extremely difficult-to-treat blood cancer.
Long-sought Discovery Fills in Missing Details of Cell 'Switchboard'
A biomedical breakthrough reveals never-before-seen details of the human body’s cellular switchboard that regulates sensory and hormonal responses.
Tracking Breast Cancer Before it Grows
A team of scientists led by University of Saskatchewan researcher Saroj Kumar is using cutting-edge Canadian Light Source techniques to screen and treat breast cancer at its earliest changes.
Zebrafish Reveal Drugs that may Improve Bone Marrow Transplant
Compounds boost stem cell engraftment; could allow more matches for patients with cancer and blood diseases.
DNA Damage Seen in Patients Undergoing CT Scanning
Along with the burgeoning use of advanced medical imaging tests over the past decade have come rising public health concerns about possible links between low-dose radiation and cancer.
The Light of Fireflies for Medical Diagnostics
EPFL scientists have exploited the light of fireflies in a new method that detects biological molecules without the need for complex devices and high costs.
