Product Summary
The QuantiGlo Human VEGF Chemiluminescent Immunoassay is a 5.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure VEGF165 levels in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains Sf 21-expressed recombinant human VEGF165 and antibodies raised against the recombinant protein. Results obtained for naturally occurring human VEGF and recombinant human VEGF121 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the QuantiGlo kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human VEGF.

Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Four samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision.
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Four samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision.

Background: VEGF
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.
