General description

Monoclonal Anti- β -Catenin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the 6F9 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from BALB/c mice. CTNNB1 (catenin β 1) gene is mapped to human chromosome 3p21. The protein encoded is also called as cadherin-associated protein.The encoded protein β-catenin is localized to the nucleus. Monoclonal antibody reacting specifically with β -catenin is an essential tool in defining the interactions and distributions of β -catenin and its relationships with other catenins and cadherins in various cells and tissues.

Specificity

The antibody does not cross-react with plakoglobin (γ-catenin).

Immunogen

recombinant chicken β-catenin.

Biochem/physiol Actions

In Wnt/β-catenin signal pathway, β-Catenin participates as a signal transduction molecule. The pathway is associated with development, tissue homeostasis and oncogenic transcription. Upregulation of the gene is associated with glioma cell proliferation. The encoded protein has dual function that regulates the coordination of cell-cell adhesion by linking cytoskeleton and cellular junctions and gene transcription. Wnt/β-catenin signal pathway is known to induce progression of colon cancer progression. It is useful for differential diagnosis of Osteoblastoma (OB) and osteosarcoma (OS). β-catenin signaling pathway may contribute to cholangiocarcinoma (CCA) cell proliferation. Monoclonal antibody reacting specifically with β -catenin is an essential tool in defining the interactions and distributions of β -catenin and its relationships with other catenins and cadherins in various cells and tissues.

Physical form

Supplied as ascites fluid with 15 mM sodium azide as a preservative.

Storage and Stability

For extended storage freeze in working aliquots. For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C. Repeated freezing and thawing, or storage in "frost-free" freezers, is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify the solution by centrifugation before use.
