Product Summary for Human E-Cadherin Quantikine ELISA Kit

The Quantikine™ Human E-Cadherin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human E-Cadherin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, saliva, and urine. It contains HEK293-expressed recombinant human E-Cadherin and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human E-Cadherin showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural human E-Cadherin.

Recovery for Human E-Cadherin Quantikine ELISA Kit

The recovery of human E-Cadherin spiked to levels throughout the range of the assay in various matrices was evaluated.

Sample Type Average % Recovery Range %
EDTA Plasma (n=30) 242 131-479
Heparin Plasma (n=30) 236 116-479
Saliva (n=10) 145 21.4-278

Background: E-Cadherin

The cadherin superfamily comprises a large number of cell surface glycoproteins with one or more cadherin repeats, which are involved in Ca2+-dependent cell-cell adhesion. Classical cadherins contain five extracellular cadherin repeats and a conserved cytoplasmic region that interacts with the actin cytoskeleton via catenins. In addition to cell adhesion, cadherins also mediate morphogenesis, cytoskeletal organization, and cell migration. In addition to the classical cadherins, the cadherin superfamily also includes desmosomal cadherins, protocadherins, 7TM cadherins, FAT family cadherins, and T-cadherin.
