Gene Information

human ... CDH15(1013)

General description

CDH15 (cadherin 15) is a member of the transmembrane glycoprotein adhesion-mediating protein family called cadherins. CDH15 is also known as MCAD or muscle-cadherin. CDH15 mRNA is present in low amount in myoblasts and in high levels in myotube-forming cells. This protein is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle and brain. This gene is localized to human chromosome 16q, spans 24.3kb and is composed of 14 exons.The encoded protein is composed of 814 amino acids, and is a member of the type I classic cadherin superfamily group. It contains a single transmembrane domain and five extracellular (EC) repeats, which mediate Ca2+-dependent homophilic cell-cell interaction.

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link.

Biochem/physiol Actions

CDH15 (cadherin 15) is responsible for hemophilic cell-cell adhesion, and functions as an interacting partner of β-catenin. β-catenin, in turn interacts with α-catenin, which is essential for the control of cytoskeletal function at adherens junctions. Changes in this gene, either independently or in combination with other factors, are linked with intellectual disability (ID). This protein is also responsible for neuronal cell-cell adhesion, and plays a part in neural morphogenesis.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
