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.

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.
