Latency-associated peptide transforming growth factor beta-1 - mouse (Tgfb1)

Links to databases

Multifunctional protein that controls proliferation, differentiation and other functions in many cell types. Many cells synthesize TGFB1 and have specific receptors for it. It positively and negatively regulates many other growth factors. It plays an important role in bone remodeling as it is a potent stimulator of osteoblastic bone formation, causing chemotaxis, proliferation and differentiation in committed osteoblasts. Stimulates sustained production of collagen through the activation of CREB3L1 by regulated intramembrane proteolysis (RIP) (By similarity). Can promote either T-helper 17 cells (Th17) or regulatory T-cells (Treg) lineage differentiation in a concentration-dependent manner. At high concentrations, leads to FOXP3-mediated suppression of RORC and down-regulation of IL-17 expression, favoring Treg cell development. At low concentrations in concert with IL-6 and IL-21, leads to expression of the IL-17 and IL-23 receptors, favoring differentiation to Th17 cells. Mediates SMAD2/3 activation by inducing its phosphorylation and subsequent translocation to the nucleus. Can induce epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and cell migration in various cell types (By similarity).

Sample type

Recommended sample types are EDTA plasma and serum. A range of additional sample types are compatible with the technology (PEA), including citrate plasma, heparin plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, (CSF), tissue and cell lysates, fine needle biopsis, microdialysis fluid, cell culture media, dried blood spots, synovial fluid, saliva, plaque extract and microvesicles. Please note that protein expression levels are expected to vary in different sample types. Certain assays are differentially affected by interfering substances such as hemolysate.

Detectability in different mouse sample matrices

Latency-associated peptide transforming growth factor beta-1 - mouse (Tgfb1)

The figure above shows the overall detectability of the specified assay in a range of different mouse sample types. Detectability in each sample matrix is presented as the mean % of all samples included in the validation studies that could be measured above the limit of detection (LOD).

Dilution of samples may be necessary for some sample matrices other than plasma or serum to achieve optimal assay performance – the data shown above represents the values obtained at the optimal dilution identified in each case. Details regarding possible dilutions should be discussed with your Olink representative prior to commencing the study. The data is compiled from multiple studies comprising a range of healthy and disease samples, including samples from genetically modified mouse lines in some cases.

(Note: CSF = cerebrospinal fluid; BAL = bronchoalveolar lavage).


    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 6%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 12%

Precision (repeatability) is calculated from linearized NPX values over LOD.
