TGF-beta receptor type-2 (TGFR-2)

Links to databases

 

Transmembrane serine/threonine kinase that dimerizes with the TGF-beta type I receptor, forming the non-promiscuous receptor for the TGF-beta cytokines TGFB1, TGFB2 and TGFB3. Signal transduction to the cytoplasm results in the transcriptional regulation of a subset of genes involved in cell proliferation. Via this mechanism, TGFR-2 regulates a wide range of of physiological and pathological processes, including cell cycle arrest in epithelial and hematopoietic cells, control of mesenchymal cell proliferation and differentiation, wound healing, extracellular matrix production, immunosuppression and carcinogenesis.

Sample type

Recommended sample types are human 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. Download any of our Data Validation documents or contact support@olink.com for more information.

NOTE: The calibrator curve below shows the performance of the assay with the estimated sensitivity and dynamic range parameters indicated. These curves are generated during the assay validation process using recombinant antigens. Please note that when analyzing biological samples the data generated will be given in the form of relative quantification (NPX values) and cannot be converted to absolute protein concentrations. For more info about NPX measurements, please visit our FAQ page.

Precision

    • Within run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 8%
    • Between run precision Coefficient of Variation (CV)
    • 15%

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