Product Description

Rat HGF ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)

Our Rat HGF ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat HGF in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (EDTA, citrate).

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is the most potent mitogen for mature parenchymal hepatocytes in primary culture, and seems to be a hepatotrophic factor that acts as a trigger for liver regeneration after partial hepatectomy and liver injury. HGF has a relative molecular mass (Mr) of 82,000 and is a heterodimer composed of a large alpha-subunit of Mr 69,000 and a small beta-subunit of Mr 34,000.1 The protein consists of 728 amino acid residues, including a possible signal peptide at the N-terminus.2 HGF may serve as a paracrine mediator to control placental development and growth.3 This growth factor may play an important role as a paracrine mediator of the proliferation of melanocytes and endothelial cells, as well as cells of epithelial origin.4 The gene encoding the human HGF is assigned to human chromosome 7.
