MaxDiscovery™ Human/Mouse TGF-ß1 ELISA Test Kit

Product Description
The MaxDiscovery™ Human/Mouse TGF-ß1 ELISA Test Kit is designed for quantitative determination of the concentration of human and mouse TGF-ß1 in serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatant. Human Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-ß) is a pleiotropic cytokine which exists in five isoforms, known as TGF-ß1-5, with homologies of 70-80% and no homology to TGF-a. TGF-ß1 is the most abundant form in lymphoid organs and is found almost ubiquitously while other isoforms are expressed in a more restricted distribution. The biologically active forms of all isoforms are disulfide-linked homodimers. The heat- and acid-stable monomeric subunits have a length of 112 amino acids. The isoforms of TGF-ß arise by proteolytic cleavage of longer precursors; the isoforms are derived from the carboxyl terminal ends of these precursors. Isoforms isolated from different species are evolutionarily closely conserved and have sequence identities on the order of 98%. Mature human, porcine, simian, chicken and bovine TGF-ß1s are identical and differ from mouse TGF-ß1 in a single amino acid. TGF-ß1 is produced in very high levels by platelets, macrophages, lymphocytes, endothelial cells, chondrocytes, and leukemic cells. TGF-ß1 secretion can be induced by steroids, retinoids, EGF, NGF, vitamin D3, and IL-1. Activities of TGF-ß1 include inhibition of cell growth for normal and transformed epithelial cells, endothelial cells, fibroblasts, neurons, and lymphoid cells and other hematopoietic cell types. TGF-ß1 inhibits the proliferation of T cells and NK cells and down-regulates the activities of activated macrophages. TGF-ß1 blocks the anti-tumor activity of IL-2 – bearing lymphokine-activated killer (LAK) cells and plays a critical role in the development of regulatory T cells. Moreover, TGF-ß1 has been shown to act as a co-stimulatory factor for expression of Foxp3, leading to the differentiation of CD4+CD25+ Treg cells from peripheral CD4+CD25- progeny.

Promising Class of New Cancer Drugs Cause Memory Loss in Mice
New findings from The Rockefeller University suggest that the original version of BET inhibitors causes molecular changes in mouse neurons, and can lead to memory loss in mice that receive it.
Electrical Control of Cancer Cells
Research led by scientists at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) has revealed a new electrical mechanism that can control these switches.
Signature of Microbiomes Linked to Schizophrenia
Studying microbiomes in throat may help identify causes and treatments of brain disorder.
Inflammation Linked to Colon Cancer Metastasis
A new Arizona State University research study led by Biodesign Institute executive director Raymond DuBois has identified for the first time the details of how inflammation triggers colon cancer cells to spread to other organs, or metastasize.
Structural Discoveries Could Aid in Better Drug Design
Scientists have uncovered the structural details of how some proteins interact to turn two different signals into a single integrated output.
Determining the Age of Fingerprints
Watch the imprint of a tire track in soft mud, and it will slowly blur, the ridges of the pattern gradually flowing into the valleys. Researchers have tested the theory that a similar effect could be used to give forensic scientists a way to date fingerprints.
Genetic Overlapping in Multiple Autoimmune Diseases May Suggest Common Therapies
CHOP genomics expert leads analysis of genetic architecture, with eye on repurposing existing drugs.
Surprising Mechanism Behind Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria Uncovered
Now, scientists at TSRI have discovered that the important human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus, develops resistance to this drug by “switching on” a previously uncharacterized set of genes.
Tissue Bank Pays Dividends for Brain Cancer Research
Checking what’s in the bank – the Brisbane Breast Bank, that is – has paid dividends for UQ cancer researchers.
Researchers Publish Landmark “Basket Study”
Researchers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) have announced results from the first published basket study, a new form of clinical trial design that explores responses to drugs based on the specific mutations in patients’ tumors rather than where their cancer originated.
