E-selectin (also called LECAM2, ELAM-1 and CD62E) is only expressed in endothelial cells that have activated by cytokines and it is a cell adhesion molecules which consists of 6 sushi domain units, EDF-like domain, transmembrane domain, intracellular cytoplasmic tail, C-type lectin domain and an N-terminal. The expression of p-selectin is responsible for stimulating the production of E-selectin which in turn is stimulated by IL-1, TNF-alpha and lipopolysaccharide. Like many of the other selectins, it is also responsible in playing vital roles during inflammation – it is important in recruiting leukocytes to the site of injury. Cytokine activated endothelial cells that are expressing E-selectin have the ability to bind CD44, PSGL-1 and many other ligands which are unidentified. There are also many findings to indicate that E-selectin is able to mediate the adhesion of tumor cells to endothelial cells. It is also fast becoming a popular biomarker for the metastatic potential of a number of cancers such as colorectal cancer.
Human E-selectin ELISA kit is designed for detecting in vitro quantitative levels of e-selectin (ELAM-1, CD62E, LECAM2) in human serum, cell culture supernatant, plasma, other biological fluids and cell lysates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 2.51 ng/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of CD62E, ELAM-1 or LECAM2 using this human E-selectin ELISA kit was 2.51 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 5.0 – 2,000 ng/ml.
