Rabbit anti Human EGF recognizes human Epidermal Growth Factor, a potent stimulator and regulator of the proliferation of epidermal and epithelial cells, expressed by a variety of cells.

The effects of EGF are initiated through tyrosine kinase activity, following the binding of EGF to the extracellular domain of the ~170 kDa EGF receptor (EGFR), which also binds other EGF-like ligands with high affinity, including TGF-a (transforming growth factor alpha), VGF (vaccinia virus growth factor) and Betacellulin, expressed in the pancreas, small intestine and by certain tumour cells (Seno et al. 1996). Receptor activation through EGF binding triggers several signal transduction pathways, including the JAK/STAT and P13K/AKT pathways.

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 EGF were raised by repeated immunisations of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG prepared by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Carrier Free
Recombinant human EGF (PHP030A).
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.

This product has been reported to work in the following applications. This information is derived from testing within our laboratories, peer-reviewed publications or personal communications from the originators.

Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
ELISA 0.25 1.0ug/ml
Western Blotting 0.1 0.2ug/ml
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 EGF antibody may be used in a direct ELISA or as the detection reagent in a sandwich ELISA with a purified human EGF antibody (AHP767) as the capture reagent and recombinant human EGF (PHP030A) as the standard.
Western Blotting
Rabbit anti human EGF may be used as in Western Blotting applications under either reducing or non-reducing conditions with recombinant human EGF (PHP030A) as the positive control.
