General description

Cadherins are glycoprotein receptors that regulate Ca2+-dependant adhesion in cells. Cadherins are associated with adherens junctions and are mainly involved in morphogenesis of cells and tissues. P-cadherin is expressed in epithelial cells and its over-expression has been associated with breast cancer metastasis and invasion . Anti-Pan Cadherin antibody is specific for cadherins in a wide range of organisms including chickens, rabbits and rats.


The epitope recognized by the antibody is shared by a wide variety of organisms.


Anti-Pan Cadherin antibody is suitable for use in confocal immunofluorescence using rat ventricular myocytes and western blot (1:200). The antibody may also be used for indirect immunofluorescence (1:100 using cultured MDBK cells) and immunohistochemistry (in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections or at 1:1,000 dilutions using protease-digested animal heart sections). Additionally, the product can be used in indirect immunoblot (135 kDa band in chicken or rabbit heart extracts), immunoperoxidase and immunoelectron-microscopy assays.

May be used for the detection of members of the cadherin family or genetically engineered proteins containing the C-terminal cadherin tail, and for demonstration of adherens type cell-cell junctions regardless of their cadherin type.
