Human Mesothelin ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human Mesothelin ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human Mesothelin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma (heparin, EDTA), saliva and urine.
Mesothelin, also known as MSLN or MPF is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MSLN gene. This gene is mapped to 16p13.3. This gene encodes a precursor protein that is cleaved into two products, megakaryocyte potentiating factor and mesothelin. Megakaryocyte potentiation factor functions as a cytokine that can stimulate colony formation in bone marrow megakaryocytes. Mesothelian is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored cell-surface protein that may function as a cell adhesion protein. This protein is overexpressed in epithelial mesotheliomas, ovarian cancers and in specific squamous cell carcinomas.
