Cadherin-11 (CDH11) ELISA Kit


Human cadherin-11 ELISA kit is designed for determining in vitro quantitative amounts of cadherin-11 (CAD-11, CDH11) in human plasma, serum, other biological fluids and tissue homogenates. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.094 ng/ml.


Cadherin-11 (CDH11 or CAD11) is a type II classical cadherin which is an integral membrane protein that is responsible for mediating calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion. It is composed of a single membrane-spanning domain, a highly conserved cytoplasmic c-terminal and an N-terminal extracellular domain. It is expressed in a number of normal tissues that are mesodermal in origin such as osteoblasts, brain or kidney and in many tumors of the kidney, stomach, breast, colon and bone.

There is also evidence that it may be differentially expressed in the embryonic brain or could be vital in the regulation of neural development. The expression of cadherin-11 in osteoblastic cell lines and its ability to upregulate during differentiation has led to the indication of a specific function in bone maintenance and development.

The human CDH-11 contains a unique mRNA splice site which can allow the formation of two forms of the protein (a full-length 796 amino acid protein and a COOH terminus-truncated variant of 693 amino acid protein). The full-length human and mouse cadherin-11 are known to share approx. 97% amino acid homology and the truncated variant have a unique cytoplasmic region which is the result of a frameshift event. The mammalian CDH-11 homologues are usually referred to as calsyntenin. CDH11 has been found to interact with CDH2, it is known to be overexpressed in more 15% of breast cancers and also essential for tumor progression in many other cancer types.


All reagents supplied need to be stored at 2 °C – 8 °C, unopened reagents will retain reactivity until expiration date. Do not use reagents beyond this date.

Your secretory IgA ELISA gave good results and I was also really impressed with how quickly we received it.

It is refreshing to know that you have a technical team that is very knowledgeable. I have already recommended your company to other researchers in our department.

I am a first time user and found that your instruction manual was very easy to follow. The insulin ELISA assay performed well and I was happy with the results that were generated.

I carried out a pilot study comparing the performance of many ELISA assay's from different suppliers and found your kits to be one of the better performers. We observed good linearity and tight replicates.
