Human CYR61/CCN1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human CYR61/CCN1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human CYR61 in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA), saliva, urine and human milk.
Cysteine-rich angiogenic inducer 61(CYR61) or CCN family member 1(CCN1), is a matricellular protein that in humans is encoded by the CYR61 gene. This gene is mapped to 1p22.3. CYR61 is capable of regulating a broad range of cellular activities, including cell adhesion, migration, proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis, and senescence through interaction with cell surface integrin receptors and heparan sulfate proteoglycans. During embryonic development, CYR61 is critical for cardiac septal morphogenesis, blood vessel formation in placenta, and vascular integrity. In adulthood CYR61 plays important roles in inflammation and tissue repair, and is associated with diseases related to chronic inflammation, including rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetes-related nephropathy and retinopathy, and many different forms of cancers.
