  • Product overview

    Abcam’s P cadherin Human ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the quantitative measurement of Human P cadherin in serum, plasma and cell culture supernatants.

    This assay employs an antibody specific for Human P cadherin coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are pipetted into the wells and P cadherin present in a sample is bound to the wells by the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human P cadherin antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is pipetted to the wells. The wells are again washed, a TMB substrate solution is added to the wells and color develops in proportion to the amount of P cadherin bound. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the intensity of the color is measured at 450 nm.

  • Research areas

  • Function

    Cadherins are calcium dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in some normal epithelial tissues and in some carcinoma cell lines.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in CDH3 are the cause of hypotrichosis with juvenile macular dystrophy (HJMD) [MIM:601553]. HJMD is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by early hair loss heralding severe degenerative changes of the retinal macula and culminating in blindness during the second to third decade of life.
    Defects in CDH3 are the cause of ectodermal dysplasia with ectrodactyly and macular dystrophy (EEM) [MIM:225280]; also known as EEM syndrome, Albrectsen-Svendsen syndrome or Ohdo-Hirayama-Terawaki syndrome. Ectodermal dysplasia defines a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. EEM is an autosomal recessive condition characterized by features of ectodermal dysplasia such as sparse eyebrows and scalp hair, and selective tooth agenesis associated with macular dystrophy and ectrodactyly.
