IGFBP–2 ELISA Kit (Rat/Mouse)


Rat/Mouse IGFBP-2 ELISA kit is designed for analysing quantitative concentrations of mouse or rat insulin-like growth factor binding protein-2 (IGFBP2) using samples of serum. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 0.01 ng/ml.


IGFBP-2 is found to be expressed in a variety of tissues such as the skeleton, vessels and blood, it is also regarded as the second most abundant IGFBP. This protein belongs to the highly conserved six insulin-like growth factor binding proteins family which are responsible for regulating many cellular processes for example proliferation, adhesion and cell migration. IGFBP-2 can prevent the binding of IGF-I binding to its receptor and there is evidence to indicate that it can also independently of IGF-I binding modulate cellular functions. Current, literature reports that both IGFBP2 and IGF2 are expressed in the kidney and its cellular activity in this organ can implicate in diabetic nephropathy. IGFBP-2 is a critical player in both metabolic syndrome and cancer biology, this has led to the implication that it may be used to reduce the mortality and morbidity of these diseases through targeted pharmacologic manipulation of IGFBP-2 activity.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
