Protein Function: Involved in angiogenesis, promotes angiogenic sprouting. May have potent implications in lung endothelial cell-leukocyte interactions (By similarity). .
Background: Endothelial cell-specific molecule 1, also known as Endocan, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ESM1 gene. This gene encodes a secreted protein which is mainly expressed in the endothelial cells in human lung and kidney tissues. The expression of this gene is regulated by cytokines, suggesting that it may play a role in endothelium-dependent pathological disorders. The transcript contains multiple polyadenylation and mRNA instability signals. ESM-1 has been described as a specific biomarker of tip cells during neoangiogenesis by independent teams. Its expression has been shown to be increase in presence of pro-angiogenic growth factors such as VEGF(vascular endothelial growth factor) or FGF-2(fibroblast growth factor 2).

Aliquot 0.1 mL per well of the 1500pg/mL, 750pg/mL, 375pg/mL, 187.5pg/mL, 93.7pg/mL, 46.8pg/mL, 23.4pg/mL mouse ESM1 standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1 mL of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1 mL of each properly diluted sample of mouse cell culture supernates, serum or plasma(heparin, EDTA) to each empty well. See "Sample Dilution Guideline" above for details. It is recommended that each mouse ESM1 standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.
