Rabbit anti Human CTGF antibody recognizes human CTGF (connective tissue growth factor), a 323 amino acid ~38 kDa polypeptide member of the CCN family of secreted cysteine rich regulatory proteins. CTGF is produced by vascular endothelial and umbilical vein cells, and interacts with several other growth factors, including transforming growth factor beta (TGF-beta), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs).

CTGF is a heparin-binding pleiotropic growth factor involved in chondrogenesis and potentially skeletogenesis. CTGF promotes the adhesion of epithelial cells and fibroblasts, stimulates integrin expression, and also promotes endothelial cell survival, migration and adhesion, implicating CTGF in angiogenesis. CTGF induces extracellular matrix formation, including the deposition of excessive collagen in fibrotic diseases, and has also been implicated in wound healing.

Target Species
Product Form
Purified IgG conjugated to Biotin - lyophilized
Reconstitute with 0.5ml sterile PBS containing 0.1% Bovine Serum Albumin.
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
Antiserum Preparation
Antisera to human CTGF were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Carrier Free
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 0.1mg/ml after reconstitution
For research purposes only
12 months from date of despatch

Prior to reconstitution store at -20°C.
After reconstitution store at -20°C.

This product should be stored undiluted. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.

Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.
This biotinylated human CTGF antibody may be used in a direct ELISA or as the detection reagent in a sandwich ELISA with our purified human CTGF antibody (AHP1278) as the capture reagent and recombinant human CTGF (PHP174) as the standard.
