Human PECAM-1/CD31 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human PECAM-1/CD31 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human PECAM-1 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Human platelet/endothelial cell adhesion molecule-1(PECAM1), an important member of the immunoglobulin gene superfamily, is widely distributed on cells of the vascular system and mediates cellular interactions through both homophilic and heterophilic adhesive mechanisms. The function of PECAM1 in vitro has begun to be understood, but its function in vivo is yet to be established.1 The PECAM1 locus is on the long arm of chromosome 17, in the region q23-qter. To confirm this observation and obtain a more precise localization of the PECAM1 locus, fluorescence in situ hybridization was conducted. Together our data allowed assignment of the PECAM1 locus to the region 17q23.2 To examine the functional role of PECAM-1 in regulating platelet-collagen interactions, 2 different approaches were applied using recombinant human PECAM-1-immunoglobulin chimeras and platelets derived from PECAM-1-deficient mice.3 PECAM-1, an integral membrane protein with an essential role in TEM, is found in this compartment and constitutively recycles evenly along endothelial cell borders.4 The standard used in this kit is the product of gene recombinant expression(extracellular part), consisting of 574 amino acids(Q28-K601) with the molecular weight of 64.5KDa. After glycosylating, its molecular weight changes to 90-100KDa.
