Full Name: Mouse KC/GRO ELISA Kit
Reactivity: Mouse
Sample Type: Serum, Plasma, Cell Culture Supernatant
Sensitivity: 1.27 pg/ml


Fibroblasts, which are stimulated by Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), are mainly responsible for producing KC/GRO. Its presence helps regulate the growth of new blood vessels and ensures that existing ones remain healthy. Furthermore, it is also involved in the control of inflammation and the healing of wounds. Thus, KC/GRO is importance in vascular biology cannot be overstated.

The tumour suppressor gene PTEN controls the synthesis of KC/GRO. K1, K2 and K3 are the three primary isoforms that have been discovered. They are created by alternatively splicing exons 4 and 5 together. Hyperactive vascular remodelling brought on by mutations in the protein is linked to an increased risk for cardiovascular disorders such atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and hypertension. As blood flow fluctuates, vascular tissue responds by secreting endothelin-1, which prompts the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines and causes vasoconstriction and artery narrowing.


Mouse KC/GRO ELISA kit is intended for analysing quantitative concentrations of mouse KC or GRO (CXCL1, GRO-alpha, NAP-3 and MGSA-alpha) in plasma, serum, cell supernatant media. This assay has a minimum sensitivity detection limit of 1.27 pg/ml.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

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

L. Johnston
PhD Student / University of Glasgow

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.

J. Thomas
Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
