Human IGFBP-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human IGFBP-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human IGFBP-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA) and urine.
IGFBP1 is also known as amniotic fluid binding protein(AFBP), placental protein-12, alpha-pregnancy-associated endometrial globulin, growth hormone independent binding protein, binding protein-28, binding protein-26, and binding protein-25. The low-molecular weight insulin-like growth-factor binding protein(IGF-BP25) is synthesized by human liver, secretory endometrium and decidua, and is also present in human serum. It binds insulin-like growth factors IGF-I and IGF-II with high affinity, and is proposed to act as a paracrine regulator of cell growth. These IGF-binding proteins are expressed at different concentrations in different tissues and are thought to regulate the activity of IGF I and II. The gene is organized in four exons and spans 5.9 kb. The IBP-1 gene is a single copy gene, located on chromosome 7. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human IGFBP-1, consisting of 234 amino acids with the molecular mass of 25KDa.
