Human SDC1/Syndecan-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human SDC1/Syndecan-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human SDC1 in cell culture supernates and serum.
Syndecan 1, also known as SYND1 or CD138, is a protein which in humans is encoded by the SDC1 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a transmembrane(type I) heparan sulfate proteoglycan and is a member of the syndecan proteoglycan family. This gene is mapped to 2p24.1. The syndecans mediate cell binding, cell signaling, cytoskeletal organization and syndecan receptors are required for internalization of the HIV-1 tat protein. The syndecan 1 protein functions as an integral membrane protein and participates in cell proliferation, cell migration and cell-matrix interactions via its receptor for extracellular matrix proteins. Whats more, Syndecan-1 is also a sponge for growth factors, with binding largely via heparan sulfate chains.
