Human PLGF ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human PLGF ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human PLGF in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA, citrate) and urine.
The protein, also called PGF, is 149 amino acids long and shares 53% identity with the platelet-derived growth factor-like region of human VPF. And the N-glycosylated PLGF protein is secreted into the medium and that it functions as a dimer1. The PLGF gene is mapped to 14q24-q31. There are 3 isoforms of PGF, designated PGF1, PGF2, and PGF3. Only PGF2 is able to bind heparin. Additionally, PGF regulates inter- and intramolecular cross-talk between the VEGF receptor tyrosine kinases FLT1 and FLK12. It also can stimulate angiogenesis and collateral growth in ischemic heart and limb with at least a comparable efficiency to VEGF3.
