  • Product overview

    Abcam’s E-Cadherin in vitro SimpleStep ELISA® (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of E-Cadherin protein in rat serum, plasma, urine and cell culture supernatant.

    The SimpleStep ELISA® employs an affinity tag labeled capture antibody and a reporter conjugated detector antibody which immunocapture the sample analyte in solution. This entire complex (capture antibody/analyte/detector antibody) is in turn immobilized via immunoaffinity of an anti-tag antibody coating the well. To perform the assay, samples or standards are added to the wells, followed by the antibody mix. After incubation, the wells are washed to remove unbound material. TMB substrate is added and during incubation is catalyzed by HRP, generating blue coloration. This reaction is then stopped by addition of Stop Solution completing any color change from blue to yellow. Signal is generated proportionally to the amount of bound analyte and the intensity is measured at 450 nm. Optionally, instead of the endpoint reading, development of TMB can be recorded kinetically at 600 nm.

  • Notes

    E-Cadherin is a member of the Cadherin family of calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. E-Cadherin is a single-pass transmembrane protein on the plasma membrane. The extracellular portion contains 5 cadherin domains that bind calcium and form homodimeric interactions. E-Cadherin is involved in mechanisms regulating cell-cell adhesions, mobility and proliferation of epithelial cells.

  • Relevance
    One of the epithelial cell adhesion molecules, E Cadherin, plays an important role in the formation of cell-cell contacts in epithelia irrespective their origin form ecto-, meso- or endodermal tissue. This early adhesion event between epithelial cells is a prerequisite for the assembly of all elements of the junctional complex. Furthermore, E Cadherin plays a crucial role in the maintenance of the epithelial junctional complex and is as such an important molecule in maintaining epithelial integrity. Over 90% of the malignant tumors are carcimomas. One of the prerequisites for the release of carcinoma cells from the primary site might be a defect in intercellular adhesion mediated by the absence of E Cadherin expression. Therefore, the expression of E Cadherin might be an important parameter for the determination of the invasive potential of epithelial neoplasms, and for the transition of a benign to a malignant neoplasm.

  • ELISA Protocol Summary
  • Background-subtracted data values (mean +/- SD) are graphed.

  • The concentrations of E-Cadherin were measured in duplicate and interpolated from the E-Cadherin standard curve and corrected for sample dilution. The interpolated dilution factor corrected values are plotted (mean +/- SD, n=2). The mean E-Cadherin concentration was determined to be 983.9 ng/mL in serum, 620.7 ng/mL in plasma (Citrate), and 1,771 ng/mL in urine.
