Santa Cruz Biotechnology offers conjugated and unconjugated monoclonal primary antibodies directed against most growth factors and hormones. Growth factors are important components of cell-cell communication. Through binding the appropriate cell surface receptors, growth factors initiate signals for cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation. Examples of growth factors include hormones and cytokines.
Most of our popular antibodies are also available as ImmunoCruz® Conjugates, including AC, HRP, PE, FITC, Alexa Fluor® 488, 546, 594, 647, 680, and 790 conjugates for direct Western Blotting and Staining applications, eliminating the need for a secondary antibody. Additional conjugates are also available for many antibodies, including Biotin, TRITC, PE-Cy5, PE-Cy7, APC, APC-Cy7, Alexa Fluor® 405, PerCP and PerCP-Cy5.5.
