Rat Cadherin-2/N-Cadherin ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Rat Cadherin-2/N-Cadherin ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of rat Cadherin-2 in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Cadherin-2(CDH2), also known as neural cadherin(NCAD), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CDH2 gene. It is a classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily. This gene is mapped to 18q12.1. Cadherin-2 is expressed in the brain, skeletal and cardiac muscle. Cadherin-2 is commonly found in cancer cells and provides a mechanism for transendothelial migration. It is a calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein comprising five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. The protein functions during gastrulation and is required for establishment of left-right asymmetry. At certain central nervous system synapses, presynaptic to postsynaptic adhesion is mediated at least in part by this gene product.
