Human Nidogen-1/Entactin/NID-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human Nidogen-1/Entactin/NID-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human Nidogen-1 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Nidogen-1(NID-1), also known as Entactin, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NID1 gene. It is a member of the nidogen family of basement membrane glycoproteins. This gene is mapped to 1q42.3. Nidogen-1 is a component of the basement membrane alongside other components such as collagen type IV, proteoglycans(heparan sulfate and glycosaminoglycans), laminin and fibronectin. The protein interacts with several other components of basement membranes. Structurally it(along with perlecan) connects the networks formed by collagens and laminins to each other. It may also play a role in cell interactions with the extracellular matrix. Nidogen-1 also can serve as a bridge between the 2 most abundant molecules in the basement membrane: type IV collagen and laminin.
