Human CD105 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CD105 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CD105 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
CD105, also called Endoglin, is a homodimeric membrane glycoprotein primarily associated with human vascular endothelium. It is also found on bone marrow proerythroblasts, activated monocytes, and lymphoblasts in childhood leukemia. Endoglin is a component of the transforming growth factor-beta(TGFB) receptor complex and binds TGFB1 with high affinity.1 CD105 gene is mapped to 9q34.1. The coding region of the gene contains 14 exons.2 The protein consists of a homodimer of 180 kDA with disulfide links. Endoglin has a role in the development of the cardiovascular system and in vascular remodeling. Its expression is regulated during heart development. Furthermore, it also has a role in the balance of ALK1 and ALK5 signaling to regulate endothelial cell proliferation.3 Moreover, the elevated expression of endoglin in the surgically excised CNVMs suggested a persisting postmitotic activation in an advanced stage of neovascular tissue.4 The standard product used in this kit is extracellular part of recombinant human CD105, from E26 to G586. As a result of glycosylation, the molecular mass is 75-85KDa.
