The Bioaim Mouse Decorin ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of Decorin in mouse serum, plasma and cell culture media. An antibody specific for mouse Decorin was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any Decorin present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-mouse Decorin 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 Decorin 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;
decorin(Decorin) Background: Decorin is a proteoglycan that is on average 90 – 140 kDa. It belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family and consists of a protein core containing leucine repeats with a glycosaminoglycan (GAG) chain consisting of either chondroitin sulfate (CS) or dermatan sulfate (DS). Decorin is a small cellular or pericellular matrix proteoglycan and is closely related in structure to biglycan protein. Decorin and biglycan are thought to be the result of a gene duplication. This protein is a component of connective tissue, binds to type I collagen fibrils, and plays a role in matrix assembly. Decorin promotes myoblast differentiation, supports angiogenesis, and inhibits tumor progression.
