Human GDF-15 Quantikine ELISA Kit Summary

The Quantikine Human GDF-15 immunoassay is a 3.5 hour solid phase ELISA designed to measure GDF-15 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human GDF-15 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural GDF-15 showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using t...he Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values of naturally occurring GDF-15.

Growth/differentiation factors (GDF-1 to GDF-15) are members of the BMP family of TGF-beta superfamily proteins. They are produced as inactive preproproteins which are then cleaved and assembled into active secreted homodimers. GDF dimers are disulfide-linked with the exception of GDF-3 and -9. GDF proteins are important during embryonic development, particularly in the skeletal, nervous, and muscular systems.
