25x Biotin-detection Ab (human PIGF-1 Biotin-dAb). PN: B111442B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anti-human PIGF-1.

Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 10, Panel A, 9-Plex. PN: HG1009A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant BTC, CNTF, FGF-4, Follistatin, IL-19, KGF, PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB, and PIGF-1.  Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

Application: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human Human PIGF/PIG-F. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Human Group 10.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex NR Basic Kit (PN: P100001) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Storage: 2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

PIGF (Phosphatidylinositol-glycan biosynthesis class F protein) is involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor biosynthesis. The GPI-anchor is a glycolipid which contains three mannose molecules in its core backbone. The GPI-anchor is found on many blood cells and serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. This protein and another GPI synthesis protein, PIGO, function in the transfer of ethanolaminephosphate (EtNP) to the third mannose in GPI. Diseases associated with PIGF include pre-eclampsia and eclampsia.
