N-Cadherin ELISA Kit (Neural Cadherin)


Human N-cadherin ELISA kit can be used for detecting in vitro quantitative levels N-cadherin (CDH2 or neural cadherin) in human tissue homogenates, plasma, serum and many other biological fluids. This assay has a minimum sensitivity limit of 0.094 ng/ml.


N-Cadherin (NCAD, neural cadherin, cadherin-2 or CDH2) is a transmembrane protein and it is expressed in many tissues. It functions in order to mediate various cell-cell adhesion processes. It is composed of 906 amino acids with a molecular weight of 99.7kDa. It contains five extracellular cadherin repeats, a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail and a transmembrane region.

N-Cadherin was first identified in neural tissues and was later found in cardiac muscles cells and cancer metastasis. In cardiac muscles it is known to form an integral part of the adherens junctions that reside at the intercalated discs (these function to electrically or mechanically couple adjacent cardiomyocytes). In neural cells, it is important in mediating presynaptic to postsynaptic adhesions. It also has the ability to interact with catenins and this plays a vital during the process of learning and memory.

It is often also found in cancer cells where it can provide a mechanism for transendotheial migration. Even though mutations have so far not been linked to any human disease, alterations in the integrity and expression of the protein have been discovered in many diseases (for example human dilated cardiomyopathy).


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.

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.

J. Thomas
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.
