Human THBS1/TSP1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human THBS1/TSP1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human THBS1 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Thrombospondin 1, also known as THBS1, is a protein that in humans in encoded by the THBS1 gene. Thrombospondin 1 is a subunit of a disulfide-linked homotrimeric protein. This protein is an adhesive glycoprotein that mediates cell-to-cell and cell-to-matrix interactions. By in situ hybridization, the THBS1 gene was mapped to human 15q15 and the cognate gene to mouse chromosome 2(region F) and was localized to 15q11-qter by Southern analysis of human-rodent somatic cell hybrids. Thrombospondin I is a multimodular secreted protein that associates with the extracellular matrix and possesses a variety of biologic functions, including a potent antiangiogenic activity. Other thrombospondin genes include thrombospondins II, III, and IV.
