The Bioaim Human HGF ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of HGF in human serum and plasma. An antibody specific for human HGF was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any HGF present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-human HGF 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 HGF 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; cell adhesion. Apoptosis;
hepatocyte growth factor( HGF ) Background: HGF is a paracrine cellular growth, motility and morphogenic factor. It is secreted by mesenchymal cells and targets and acts primarily upon epithelial cells and endothelial cells, but also acts on haemopoietic progenitor cells and T cells. It has been shown to have a major role in embryonic organ development, specifically in myogenesis. HGF induces the proliferation and migration of epithelial cells, hepatocytes and many tumor cells. During organogenesis and tissue repair, HGF promotes epithelial/endothelial morphogenesis by inducing cell scattering and branching tubulogenesis. It also supports insulin production by pancreatic beta cells, neuronal survival, and immune tolerance. Its signaling through the receptor HGF R/c-MET is enhanced by its prior binding to heparan sulfate proteoglycans. The serum levels of HGF are elevated in a wide range of pathologies including liver damage, acute kidney failure, myocardial infarction, type 1 diabetes, obesity, and cancer.
