The Bioaim Human Fibronectin ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of Fibronectin in Human serum, plasma and cell culture media. An antibody specific for Human Fibronectin was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any Fibronectin present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human Fibronectin antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of Fibronectin present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Angiogenesis;
fibronectin 1(Fibronectin) Background: Fibronectin is an extracellular matrix (ECM) component and is one of the primary cell adhesion molecules. The occurrence of different isoforms is due to alternative mRNA splicing of the ED-A, ED-B and III-CS regions, and subsequent post-translational modification. Fibronectin has numerous functions that ensure the normal functioning of vertebrate organisms. It is involved in cell adhesion, growth, migration, and differentiation. Cellular fibronectin is assembled into the extracellular matrix, an insoluble network that separates and supports the organs and tissues of an organism. Fibronectin plays a crucial role in wound healing. Along with fibrin, plasma fibronectin is deposited at the site of injury, forming a blood clot that stops bleeding and protects the underlying tissue. As repair of the injured tissue continues, fibroblasts and macrophages begin to remodel the area, degrading the proteins that form the provisional blood clot matrix and replacing them with a matrix that more resembles the normal, surrounding tissue. Fibroblasts secrete proteases, including matrix metalloproteinases, that digest the plasma fibronectin, and then the fibroblasts secrete cellular fibronectin and assemble it into an insoluble matrix. Fragmentation of fibronectin by proteases has been suggested to promote wound contraction, a critical step in wound healing. Fragmenting fibronectin further exposes its V-region, which contains the site for ⓮⓵ integrin binding. These fragments of fibronectin are believed to enhance the binding of ⓮⓵ integrin-expressing cells, allowing them to adhere to and forcefully contract the surrounding matrix.
