The Bioaim Human EpCAM ELISA kit is a solid phase sandwich ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) for the quantitative measurement of EpCAM in Human serum, plasma and cell culture media. An antibody specific for Human EpCAM was coated on a 96-well plate. Standards and samples are added to the wells and any EpCAM present binds to the immobilized antibody. The wells are washed and biotinylated anti-Human EpCAM antibody is added. After washing away unbound biotinylated antibody, HRP-conjugated streptavidin is added to the wells. The wells are again washed and TMB substrate solution is added, which produces a blue color in direct proportion to the amount of EpCAM present in the initial sample. The Stop Solution changes the color from blue to yellow, and the microwell absorbances are read at 450 nm.Research Area Angiogenesis; Cancer Biomarker; Breast Cancer Stem Cell Markers;
epithelial cell adhesion molecule(EpCAM) Background: Epithelial Cellular Adhesion Molecule (EpCAM), also known as KS1/4, gp40, GA733-2, 17-1A, and TROP-1, is a transmembrane glycoprotein that functions as a homophilic Ca2+-independent adhesion molecule. EpCAM is expressed in fetal lung, kidney, liver, pancreas, skin, and germ cells, and in adult epithelia. EpCAM has a negative impact on cadherin-mediated adhesions. Overexpression of EpCAM does not alter the expression level of cadherin but rather decreases the association of the cadherin/ catenin complex in the cytoskeleton. As EpCAM expression increases, the total amount of α-catenin decreases, whereas cellular β-catenin levels remain constant.
