Assay Principle
Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.  
Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%      
Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.    
To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of rat CTGF in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Target Background

(From Uniprot)
Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis.
Gene References into Functions
  1. Findings suggested that hypoxia induced CTGF upregulation in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension (HPH) rat model. CTGF mediated hypoxia-induced regulation of miR-26b and SRF in proliferation of pulmonary arterial smooth muscle cells, which indicated that hypoxia-induced miR-26b inhibition contributed to the pathogenesis of HPH via CTGF. PMID: 28816418
  2. Ang II down-regulates KLF15 expression via the AT1 receptor, and KLF15 is likely to inhibit Ang II-induced CTGF expression by repressing the recruitment of the co-activator P/CAF to the CTGF promoter. PMID: 29179208
  3. our findings showed that miR-375 binds to 3'-UTR region of Ctgf mRNA, subsequently leading to the decreased expression of Ctgf in the I/R brain. Furthermore, we showed that miR-375/Ctgf-mediated protective effects are associated with p21/PI3K/Akt signaling pathways. PMID: 29187583
  4. The blocking of this pathway by its inhibitor LY294002 impaired the proliferative effect of CCN2 on chondrocytes. These results suggested a novel physiological role of CCN2 in the development of condylar cartilage. PMID: 29198711
