Product Summary

The Quantikine Human E-Cadherin Immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human E-Cadherin in cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, urine, and saliva. It contains NS0-expressed recombinant human E-Cadherin/Fc Chimera and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human E-Cadherin showed linear curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for naturally occurring E-Cadherin.


Intra-Assay Precision (Precision within an assay) Three samples of known concentration were tested on one plate to assess intra-assay precision
Inter-Assay Precision (Precision between assays) Three samples of known concentration were tested in separate assays to assess inter-assay precision

Background: E-Cadherin

The cadherin superfamily comprises a large number of cell surface glycoproteins with one or more cadherin repeats, which are involved in Ca2+-dependent cell-cell adhesion. Classical cadherins contain five extracellular cadherin repeats and a conserved cytoplasmic region that interacts with the actin cytoskeleton via catenins. In addition to cell adhesion, cadherins also mediate morphogenesis, cytoskeletal organization, and cell migration. In addition to the classical cadherins, the cadherin superfamily also includes desmosomal cadherins, protocadherins, 7TM cadherins, FAT family cadherins, and T-cadherin.

Assay Procedure

Refer to the product for complete assay procedure.

Bring all reagents and samples to room temperature before use. It is recommended that all samples, standards, and controls be assayed in duplicate.
  1.   Prepare all reagents, standard dilutions, and samples as directed in the product insert.
  2.   Remove excess microplate strips from the plate frame, return them to the foil pouch containing the desiccant pack, and reseal.

  3. 100 µL Assay Diluent
  4.   Add 100 µL of Assay Diluent to each well.

  5. 50 µL Standard, Control, or Sample
  6.   Add 50 µL of Standard, control, or sample to each well. Cover with a plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on a horizontal orbital microplate shaker.
  7.   Aspirate each well and wash, repeating the process 3 times for a total of 4 washes.

  8. 200 µL Conjugate
  9.   Add 200 µL of Conjugate to each well. Cover with a new plate sealer, and incubate at room temperature for 2 hours on the shaker.
  10.   Aspirate and wash 4 times.

  11. 200 µL Substrate Solution
  12.   Add 200 µL Substrate Solution to each well. Incubate at room temperature for 30 minutes on the benchtop. PROTECT FROM LIGHT.

  13. 50 µL Stop Solution
  14.   Add 50 µL of Stop Solution to each well. Read at 450 nm within 30 minutes. Set wavelength correction to 540 nm or 570 nm.
