Properties

Sensitivity <10pg/ml
*Sensitivity, or Lower Limit of Detection (LLD), is the minimum level of target protein the ELISA assay can detect. We measure 20 blank wells and if the O.D. value is 2 standard deviations higher than the blanks' average O.D. the sample can be deemed positive.
Assay Range 31.2pg/ml-2000pg/ml
*This assay range is determined using common samples. For samples with low target protein concentrations, users can adjust the standard curve to extend the lower limit of assay range.
Sample Type cell culture supernates, cell lysates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).

*The above listed samples are the ones valided with the assay. If you do not see your sample of interest listed, as long as there is enough level of target protein present in the sample, this Picokine™ ELISA kit should detect it.
**For protocol and tips regarding preparing your sample of interest, please check our ELISA sample preparation guide.
Storage Store at 4°C for 6 months, at -20°C for 12 months. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles(Shipped with wet ice.)

You can check the tissue specificity below for information on selecting positive and negative control.

Gene Name FGF21
Protein Function Stimulates glucose uptake in differentiated adipocytes via the induction of glucose transporter SLC2A1/GLUT1 expression (but not SLC2A4/GLUT4 expression). Activity probably requires the presence of KLB.
Tissue Specificity Most abundantly expressed in the liver, also expressed in the thymus at lower levels.
Subcellular Localization Secreted
Uniprot ID Q9JJN1
Alternative Names Fibroblast growth factor 21; FGF-21; Fgf21;
Reseach Areas Angiogenesis, Cancer, Cardiovascular, Growth Factors, Growth Factors/Hormones, Signal Transduction|
*if product is indicated to react with multiple species, protein info is based on the human gene.

Background for FGF21

Fibroblast growth factor 21 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FGF21 gene. By genomic sequence analysis, Nishimura et al. (2000) identified the FGF21 gene within the 5-prime flanking region of the FUT1 gene on chromosome 19. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF21 stimulates glucose uptake in adipocytes but not in other cell types. This effect is additive to the activity of insulin. FGF21 treatment of adipocytes is associated with phosphorylation of FRS2, a protein linking FGF receptors to the Ras/MAP kinase pathway. FGF21 injection in ob/ob mice results in an increase in Glut1 in adipose tissue. FGF21 also protects animals from diet-induced obesity when overexpressed in transgenic mice and lowers blood glucose and triglyceride levels when administered to diabetic rodents.

*The typical data is obtained from Boster's internal QC result and for reference only. It may differ from the lab test results of the end users. It is more important that the user's lab test results reflect the same linearity demonstrated in the typical data than achieving exactly the same O.D. values.
