Rat FGF1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat FGF1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat FGF1 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Heparin-binding growth factor 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FGF1 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor(FGF) family. This protein functions as a modifier of endothelial cell migration and proliferation, as well as an angiogenic factor. It acts as a mitogen for a variety of mesoderm- and neuroectoderm-derived cells in vitro, thus is thought to be involved in organogenesis. The FGF1 gene was mapped to chromosome 5q31.3-q33.2 by in situ hybridization.
