Immunofluorescent analysis of EGF (green) in HeLa cells either left untreated (left panel) or treated with 10ng/ml EGF (right panel) for 5 minutes. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with an EGF monoclonal antibody (Product # M805) at a dilution of 1:50 for at least 1 hour at room temperature, washed with PBS, and incubated with DyLight 488 goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody (Product # 35502) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. F-Actin (red) was stained with DyLight 554 Phalloidin (Product # 21834) and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product # 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

The M805 anti-EGF antibody (Clone 1H11) has successfully been paired as the coating antibody in a sandwich ELISA with detection antibody M806B (biotinylated conjugate of Clone 3A8).
Typical dilutions for sandwich ELISA include 1-3 µgs/ml for coating and 0.125-0.5 µg/ml for detection.
The protein encoded by EGF gene is a growth factor that stimulates cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation by binding to its receptor EGFR. Human EGF is a 6045-Da protein with 53 amino acid residues and three intramolecular disulfide bonds
