Cadherin-16 ELISA Kit (CDH-16)


Human cadherin-16 ELISA kit is a protocol that is designed for measuring in vitro quantitative concentrations of cadherin-16 (CDH-16, KSP-cadherin, kidney-specific cadherin, CDH16) in human serum, cell lysates, cell culture supernatant, plasma and many other biological fluids. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.038 ng/ml.


Cadherin-16 (CDH16, kidney-specific cadherin, KSP-cadherin or CDH-16) is a calcium-dependent, membrane-associated glycoprotein which is expressed in the kidney and as major role in mediating homotypic cellular recognition. The protein consists of a truncated cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane region and 6 cadherin domains, however, it does lack the tripeptide HAV adhesion recognition sequence and the pro-sequence that is found in majority of cadherins. There have also been alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode distinct isoforms that have been identified.


The minimum detection sensitivity level of kidney-specific cadherin (CDH16, cadherin-16, CDH-16, KSP-cadherin) using current CDH-16 ELISA kit was 0.038 ng/ml. The dynamic range for this assay is 1.156 – 10 ng/ml.

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.

Senior Technician / Addenbrooke’s Hospital

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.
