Specificity / Sensitivity

PathScan® Total FGF Receptor 4 Sandwich ELISA Kit detects endogenous levels of FGFR4 protein in human cells, as shown in Figure 1. The kit sensitivity is shown in Figure 2. This kit detects proteins from the indicated species, as determined through in-house testing, but may also detect homologous proteins from other species.


The PathScan® Total FGF Receptor 4 Sandwich ELISA Kit is a solid phase sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that detects endogenous levels of FGFR4 protein. An FGFR4 rabbit mAb has been coated onto the microwells. After incubation with cell lysates, both phospho- and nonphospho-FGFR4 proteins are captured by the coated antibody. Following extensive washing, an FGFR4 mouse detection mAb is added to detect captured FGFR4 proteins. Anti-mouse IgG, HRP-linked antibody is then used to recognize the bound detection antibody. HRP substrate, TMB, is added to develop color. The magnitude of absorbance for the developed color is proportional to the quantity of FGFR4 protein.

Antibodies in the kit are custom formulations specific to kit.

Figure 1. FGF receptor 4 protein is detected from multiple cell lines using the PathScan® Total FGF Receptor 4 Sandwich ELISA Kit #15078. The absorbance readings at 450 nm are shown in the top figure, while the corresponding western blot using FGF Receptor 4 (D3B12) XP® Rabbit mAb #8562 is shown in the bottom figure.



Figure 2. The relationship between protein concentration of lysates from Hep G2 cells and the absorbance at 450 nm as detected by the PathScan® Total FGF Receptor 4 Sandwich ELISA Kit #15078 is shown. Hep G2 cells (85% confluence) were harvested and then lysed.


Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) produce mitogenic and angiogenic effects in target cells by signaling through cell surface receptor tyrosine kinases. There are four members of the FGF receptor family: FGFR1 (flg), FGFR2 (bek, KGFR), FGFR3, and FGFR4. Each receptor contains an extracellular ligand binding domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic kinase domain (1). Following ligand binding and dimerization, the receptors are phosphorylated at specific tyrosine residues (2). Seven tyrosine residues in the cytoplasmic tail of FGFR1 can be phosphorylated: Tyr463, 583, 585, 653, 654, 730, and 766. Tyr653 and Tyr654 are important for catalytic activity of activated FGFR and are essential for signaling (3). The other phosphorylated tyrosine residues may provide docking sites for downstream signaling components such as Crk and PLCγ (4,5).
