L-selectin (also referred to as CD62L) is found predominately on lymphocytes and has a main function of a homing receptor, aiding lymphocytes to enter into secondary lymphoid tissues through the high endothelial venules. The molecule itself is made up of many domains which include one homologous to EGF, one to lectins and two consensus repeat units which are present in C3/C4 binding proteins. The receptor is mostly located on the cell surface of T cells and also can be found in human embryo trophoblasts before the implantation stage into the uterus. There is also high expression of L-selectin present in human bone marrow progenitor cells and this has been used as a good indicator of cells that are committed to undergoing lymphoid differentiation.
Human L-selectin ELISA kit is intended for measuring in vitro quantitative amounts of l-selectin (CD62L) in human serum, cell lysates, cell culture supernatant, other biological fluids and plasma. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 10.18 ng/ml.
The minimum detection sensitivity level of CD62L using this human L-selectin ELISA kit was 10.18 ng/ml. The dynamic assay range for this kit is 20.0 – 6,000 ng/ml.
