Principle of the Assay
The microtiter plate provided in this kit has been pre-coated with an antibody specific to CTGF. Standards or samples are then added to the appropriate microtiter plate wells with a biotin-conjugated antibody preparation specific to CTGF. Next, Avidin conjugated to Horseradish Peroxidase (HRP) is added to each microplate well and incubated. After the TMB substrate solution is added, only those wells that contain CTGF, biotin-conjugated antibody, and enzyme-conjugated Avidin will exhibit a change in color. The enzyme-substrate reaction is terminated by the addition of sulphuric acid solution, and the color change is measured spectrophotometrically at a wavelength of 450nm ± 10nm. The concentration of CTGF in the samples is then determined by comparing the O.D. of the samples to the standard curve.
For Use with serum, plasma, and cell culture supernatants. For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes (By similarity). Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells (By similarity). Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis (By similarity).

Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): 3 samples with low, middle, and high-level CTGF were tested 20 times on one plate, respectively.
|SENSITIVITY||The minimum detectable dose was 30.23pg/mL.|
|SPECIFICITY||This assay has high sensitivity and excellent specificity for the detection of CTGF.
No significant cross-reactivity or interference between CTGF and analogs was observed.
Limited by current skills and knowledge, it is impossible to perform all possible cross-reactivity detection tests between CTGF and all analogs, therefore, cross reactivity may still exist.
