Human Endocan/ESM-1 Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human Endocan in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 20% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse Endocan is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human Endocan/ESM-1
Accession # Q9NQ30
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
1 µg/mL
See below
Measured by its ability to neutralize Endocan/ESM‑1-mediated adhesion of the Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 1-4 µg/mL in the presence of 20 µg/mL Recombinant Human Endocan/ESM‑1.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human Endocan/ESM-1 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Endocan/ESM‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysate of HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human Endocan/ESM-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1810) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for Endocan/ESM-1 at approximately 20 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Neutralization Cell Adhesion Mediated by Endocan/ESM‑1 and Neutral-ization by Human Endocan/ESM‑1 Antibody. View Larger

Cell Adhesion Mediated by Endocan/ESM‑1 and Neutral-ization by Human Endocan/ESM‑1 Antibody. Recombinant Human Endocan/ESM-1 (Catalog # 1810-EC), immobilized onto a microplate, supports the adhesion of the Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Adhesion elicited by Recombinant Human Endocan/ESM-1 (20 µg/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human Endocan/ESM-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1810). The ND50 is typically 1-4 µg/mL.

Background: Endocan/ESM-1

Endocan, also known as endothelial-cell specific molecule-1 (ESM-1), is a secreted cysteine-rich dermatan sulfate (DS) proteoglycan primarily expressed by endothelial cells within the vascular capillary network in kidney and in the alveolar walls of the lung (1). Endocan expression has also been detected in different epithelia and in adipocytes (2, 3). The expression of endocan is upregulated by TNF‑ alpha, IL-1 beta, or lipopolysaccharide and down-regulated by IFN‑ gamma (1). The human Endocan gene encodes a 184 amino acid (aa) residues precursor protein with a 19 aa hydrophobic signal peptide and a 165 aa mature region with 18 Cysteine residues (1). The DS chain is covalently attached to serine 137 (4). Endocan has been shown to bind CD11a/CD18 integrin (also known as lymphocyte function-associated antigen-1, LFA-1) on human lymphocytes, monocytes and Jurkat cells, inhibiting its binding to ICAM-1 and reducing LFA-1-mediated leukocyte activation (5). Endocan binds via its DS chain to hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) to enhance HGF mitogenic activity (3, 6). Genetically engineered cells overexpressing endocan has been shown to induce tumor formation, suggesting that Endocan may be involved in the pathophysiology of tumor growth in vivo (3, 6). Circulating Endocan can be detected in the serum from healthy subjects. In patients with lung cancer or acute and severe sepsis, elevated Endocan concentrations have been reported (2, 6).
