  • Product overview

    Abcam’s CD44var (v6) Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for accurate quantitative measurement of Human CD44var (v6) concentrations in Cell culture supernatant, serum and plasma (EDTA, citrate, heparin), and urine.

    CD44var (v6) specific antibodies have been precoated onto a 96-well plate. Standards and test samples are added to the wells and along with a CD44var (v6) HRP-conjugated detection antibody and the microplate is then incubated at room temperature. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, TMB is added and catalyzed by HRP to produce a blue color product that changes to yellow after addition of an acidic stop solution. The density of yellow coloration is directly proportional to the CD44var (v6) amount of sample captured in plate.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Receptor for hyaluronic acid (HA). Mediates cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions through its affinity for HA, and possibly also through its affinity for other ligands such as osteopontin, collagens, and matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs). Adhesion with HA plays an important role in cell migration, tumor growth and progression. Also involved in lymphocyte activation, recirculation and homing, and in hematopoiesis. Altered expression or dysfunction causes numerous pathogenic phenotypes. Great protein heterogeneity due to numerous alternative splicing and post-translational modification events.
  • Tissue specificity
    Isoform 10 (epithelial isoform) is expressed by cells of epithelium and highly expressed by carcinomas. Expression is repressed in neuroblastoma cells.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 Link domain.
  • Domain
    The lectin-like LINK domain is responsible for hyaluronan binding.
  • Post-translational
    Proteolytically cleaved in the extracellular matrix by specific proteinases (possibly MMPs) in several cell lines and tumors.
    O-glycosylated; contains more-or-less-sulfated chondroitin sulfate glycans, whose number may affect the accessibility of specific proteinases to their cleavage site(s).
    Phosphorylated; activation of PKC results in the dephosphorylation of Ser-706 (constitutive phosphorylation site), and the phosphorylation of Ser-672.

Thank you for contacting us.

After reading the protocol I am sure that the whole plate is coated with the antibody as all the reagents are designed to be sufficient for 12 stripes. As mentioned in the protocol, the 32 wells are just an examp...
