Ultra-pure, active recombinant growth factors

Growth factors, cytokines, chemokines, and hormones share many similarities and act as essential biochemical messengers for housekeeping functions, as well as having crucial roles in pathological and stem-cell related growth and regulation.

BioVision, Inc. offers human, mouse, and rat recombinant EGF, IGF, and FGF, plus variants, that are ≥98% pure by SDS-PAGE and HPLC. Every lot produced is thoroughly tested for purity, bioactivity, and endotoxin levels (<0.1 ng/µg). BioVision also offers ~300 other growth factors, cytokines, and hormones, as well as antibodies to these biomolecules.

New Glucose Uptake and Metabolism Assay Kits

Carbohydrates play crucial roles in metabolic processes of living organisms; the most important carbohydrate being glucose. We are excited to introduce new assay kits for the study of glucose uptake and metabolism.

Glucose Uptake
Glucose uptake is an important biological process for studying cell signaling and glucose metabolism. 2-deoxyglucose (2-DG) is widely used because of its structural similarity to glucose. As with glucose, 2-DG can be taken up by glucose transporters, and metabolized to 2-DG-6-phosphate (2-DG6P). 2-DG6P, however, cannot be further metabolized, and thus accumulates in the cells. Accumulated 2-DG6P is, therefore, directly proportional to 2-DG (or glucose) uptake by cells.

Key Features and benefits:
  • Simple, fast, and non-radioactive
  • Highly Sensitive: detects glucose uptake as low as 10 pmol/well
  • High-Throughput Adaptable
  • Can be used for a variety of cell types
  • Fluorometric (Ex/Em = 535/587) or Colorimetric (λ = 412 nm) quantification
  • Applicable to various fields like diabetes and obesity research, insulin signaling, screening diabetes related drugs etc.

Glucose Metabolism
Phosphoglucomutase (PGM) plays a key role in carbohydrate metabolism and widely exists in many organisms. PGM interconverts Glucose-1-Phosphate (G1P) and Glucose-6-Phosphate (G6P) depending on the body requirement. PGM deficiency leads to glucose storage disease. Detection of abnormal phosphoglucomutase activity is crucial for diagnosis, prediction and treatment of the disease.

Key features and benefits:
  • Simple, rapid, reliable and highly sensitive.
  • Colorimetric quantification (λmax = 450 nm).
  • Sensitivity as low as 1 mU/reaction (based on our unit definition).
  • Versatile: can be used with plasma as well as mammalian tissues and cells.

Glucose-1-phosphate (G1P) is an important carbohydrate intermediate in glucose metabolism and storage. Measurement of intracellular G1P levels is crucial for analyzing the carbohydrate metabolic pathways and their kinetic properties.

Key features of the kit:
  • Simple, convenient and non-radioactive.
  • Rapid, reliable and highly sensitive.
  • Colorimetric quantification (λmax = 450 nm).
  • Detection range of 1 µM to 10 mM of G1P in the samples.
  • Can be used with adherent or suspension cells as well as mammalian tissues.
