Target
Vitronectin is a plasma glycoprotein that circulates in the blood. Vitronectin is circulating as a mixture of both 75 kDa and 65 kDa forms. Vitronectin is a major cell adhesive glycoprotein and is a common component of extracellular matrix and plasma. It competes effectively with other plasma proteins and is often involved in cell attachment, regulation of blood coagulation and immune responses. It has similar tissue distribution to fibronectin and also its integrin receptor recognises fibronectin (2).
Application 1
ELISA
It binds equally well to native and denatured vitronectin and can be used to quantitate vitronectin in human plasma in a sandwich ELISA with CSI 003-08. It does not interfere with the binding of any known vitronectin ligands. CSI 003-02 also binds to vitronectin in ELISA when vitronectin is coated directly onto the microtiter well. In Western blotting a dilution guideline of 1/100 has proved successful (1,2).
Application 2
WB
CSI 003-02 can be used in Western blotting (1, 2)

Application 4
AP
CSI 003-02 can be used to purify vitronectin from human plasma by affinity chromatography. It can also be used to quantitatively affinity-deplete human plasma or serum of vitronectin. It partially denatures vitronectin upon antibody binding.
