The Quantikine Canine VEGF Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure VEGF levels in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains Sf 21-expressed recombinant canine VEGF and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained for naturally occurring canine VEGF showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural canine VEGF.
Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.
Serum, EDTA Plasma, Heparin Plasma
Cell Culture Supernates
The recovery of canine VEGF spiked to three different levels throughout the range of the assay was evaluated.
Average % Recovery
Cell Culture Media (n=4)
EDTA Plasma (n=4)
Heparin Plasma (n=4)
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of canine VEGF and diluted with the appropriate Calibrator Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.
Preparation and Storage
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.
VEGF (Vascular endothelial growth factor) is a potent mediator of both angiogenesis and vasculogenesis in the fetus and adult. It is required for regulating the proliferation, migration, and survival of embryonic endothelial cells and during wound healing and the female reproductive cycle in adults. Pathologically, it is involved in tumor development and tumor vascular leakage. VEGF binds to VEGF R1/Flt-1, VEGF R2/Flk-1/KDR, and Neuropilin-1. Multiple forms of VEGF are generated by alternative splicing and proteolysis.
