The Quantikine Human sVCAM-1 Immunoassay is a 2 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure human sVCAM-1 in cell culture supernates, serum, and plasma. It contains CHO cell-expressed recombinant human sVCAM-1 and has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant factor. Results obtained using natural human sVCAM-1 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 sVCAM-1.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.

Alternate Names for Human VCAM-1/CD106 Quantikine ELISA Kit
vascular cell adhesion molecule 1
vascular cell adhesion protein 1
VCAM-1 (Vascular Cell Adhesion Molecule-1; CD106) is a transmembrane molecule that mediates the adhesion of immune cells to the vascular endothelium during inflammation. It binds to several integrins including alpha4/beta1 (VLA-4), alpha4/beta7, alpha9/beta1, and alphaD/beta2. It is expressed constitutively in the bone marrow where it regulates T cell, B cell, and hematopoietic progenitor cell migration. A soluble form VCAM-1 can promote monocyte chemotaxis.
