Applications

Recommended Concentration
Sample
ELISA

This antibody functions as an ELISA capture antibody when paired with Goat Anti-Human HB‑EGF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-259-NA).

This product is intended for assay development on various assay platforms requiring antibody pairs. We recommend the Human HB-EGF DuoSet ELISA Kit (Catalog # DY259B) for convenient development of a sandwich ELISA or the Human HB-EGF Quantikine ELISA Kit (Catalog # DHBEG0) for a complete optimized ELISA.

 

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Scientific Data

Human HB‑EGF ELISA Standard Curve. Recombinant Human HB-EGF protein was serially diluted 2-fold and captured by Mouse Anti-Human HB-EGF Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2592) coated on a Clear Polystyrene Microplate (Catalog # DY990). Goat Anti-Human HB-EGF Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF-259-NA) was biotinylated and incubated with the protein captured on the plate. Detection of the standard curve was achieved by incubating Streptavidin-HRP (Catalog # DY998) followed by Substrate Solution (Catalog # DY999) and stopping the enzymatic reaction with Stop Solution (Catalog # DY994).

Background: HB-EGF

HB-EGF was originally purified based on its heparin-binding property and mitogenic activity on BALB-3T3 fibroblasts from the conditioned medium of the human U-937 histiocytic lymphoma cell line. The natural protein has an apparent molecular mass of 19-23 kDa and exists in multiple forms as a result of heterogenous O‑glycosylation and/or N-terminal truncation. In addition to fibroblasts, HB-EGF is also a potent mitogen for keratinocytes and smooth muscle cells but not for capillary endothelial cells. HB-EGF is produced in monocytes and macrophages. In addition, transcription of HB-EGF can be induced in vascular endothelial cells as well as aortic smooth muscle cells (SMC), suggesting that HB-EGF may have an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.

HB-EGF is a member of the EGF family of mitogens which also include transforming growth factor-alpha (TGF-alpha ), amphiregulin (AR), rat schwanoma-derived growth factor (SDGF), vaccinia growth factor (VGF), and the various ligands for the Her2/ErbB2/Neu receptor. All these cytokines are derived from transmembrane precursors that contain one or several EGF structural units in their extracellular domain. Many of these transmembrane precursors are biologically active and seem to play a role in juxtacrine stimulation of adjacent cells. The cDNA for HB-EGF encodes a 204 amino acid residue transmembrane protein that is proteolytically cleaved to generate the soluble HB-EGF. Like EGF, TGF-alpha, and AR; HB-EGF binds to the EGF receptor and activates the receptor tyrosine kinase. HB-EGF is reported to be a more potent SMC mitogen than EGF. It has been suggested that the differential activities found for HB-EGF compared to EGF may be mediated by the heparin-binding properties of HB-EGF. A diphtheria toxin receptor that mediates the endocytosis of the bound toxin has been cloned and found to be identical to the transmembrane HB-EGF precursor.
