Species Reactivity
This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for detection of Ctgf. No significant cross-reactivity or interference between Ctgf and analogues was observed.
Serum, plasma, tissue homogenates and other biological fluids
Detection Range
Intra-assay Precision
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Ctgf were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively. Intra-Assay: CV<8%
Inter-assay Precision
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): 3 samples with low, middle and high level Ctgf were tested on 3 different plates, 8 replicates in each plate. CV (%) = SD/meanX100. Inter-Assay: CV<10%
Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C if kit is to be used within 1 week. Stable for 6 months (if micro ELISA Plate, Lyophilized Standard and Concentrated Biotinylated Detection Protein stored at-20 degree C. Other components at 2-8 degree C). Stable for 12 months (if the entire kit is stored at-20 degree C).
ISO Certification
Manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 Certified Laboratory.
Product Note
Our ELISA Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved.

Other Notes
Small volumes of Ctgf elisa kit vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

MBS763358 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip plate ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the Connective tissue growth factor (Ctgf) ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing Ctgf. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS763358 kit is based on Ctgf antibody-Ctgf antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect Ctgf antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, Ctgf. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

Principle of the Assay: This kit was based on sandwich enzyme-linked immune-sorbent assay technology. Anti- Ctgf antibody was pre-coated onto 96-well plates. And the biotin conjugated anti- Ctgf antibody was used as detection antibodies. The standards, test samples and biotin conjugated detection antibody were added to the wells subsequently, and washed with wash buffer. HRP-Streptavidin was added and unbound conjugates were washed away with wash buffer. TMB substrates were used to visualize HRP enzymatic reaction. TMB was catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changed into yellow after adding acidic stop solution. The density of yellow is proportional to the Ctgf amount of sample captured in plate. Read the O.D. absorbance at 450nm in a microplate reader, and then the concentration of Ctgf can be calculated.

NCBI Summary for Ctgf
The protein encoded by this gene is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. The encoded protein plays a role in chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation, cell adhesion in many cell types, and is related to platelet-derived growth factor. Certain polymorphisms in this gene have been linked with a higher incidence of systemic sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]
UniProt Comments for Ctgf
CTGF: Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis. Belongs to the CCN family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
