Human VCAM-1 ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Human VCAM-1 ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of human VCAM-1 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Vascular cell adhesion molecule 1(VCAM-1) is a cell surface glycoprotein adhesive for certain blood leukocytes and tumor cells, which is expressed by activated endothelium in a variety of pathologic conditions including atherosclerosis. Increased expression of VCAM1 is associated with a variety of chronic inflammatory conditions, making its expression and function a target for therapeutic intervention. Integrin alpha4beta1(VLA-4) and VCAM-1 facilitate a critical cell-cell adhesion event required for survival of endothelial and mural cells during vascularization. The VCAM1 gene is assigned to the 1p31-32 region of chromosome 1 based on the analysis of human-mouse hybrid cell lines and in situ hybridization. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human VCAM-1, consisting of Phe25-Glu698 amino acid sequence of a single chain with the molecular mass of 74KDa. As a result of glycosylation, the molecular mass of 90-95KDa is revealed by SDS-PAGE.
