Gene Information

human ... PCDH7(5099)


Protocadherin-7 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

PCDH7 (Protocadherin 7) encodes a protocadherin belonging to the cadherin superfamily. It is predominantly expressed in cerebral cortex neurons of the brain. Pcdh7 performs an essential role in osteoclastogenesis by promoting cell-cell fusion. Upregulated PCDH7 expression has been documented in studies, which indicate an important role of PCDH7 in bone metastasis of breast cancer.

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.


Corresponding Antigen APREST71519.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

Breast cancer had a propensity to metastasize to bone, resulting in serious skeletal complications associated with poor outcome. Previous study showed that Protocadherin-7 (PCDH7) play an important role in brain metastatic breast cancer, however, the role of PCDH7 in bone...

Systematic interrogation of gene function requires the ability to perturb gene expression in a robust and generalizable manner. Here we describe structure-guided engineering of a CRISPR-Cas9 complex to mediate efficient transcriptional activation at endogenous genomic loci. We used these engineered...

Using a yeast two-hybrid system, we isolated eight cDNA clones which interacted with BH-protocadherin-c (BH-Pcdh-c) from the human brain cDNA library. One clone encoded protein phosphatase type I isoform alpha (PP1alpha) and another two PP1alpha2. PP1alpha was co-immunoprecipitated from the...

Serrated adenomas form a distinct subtype of colorectal pre-malignant lesions that may progress to malignancy along a different molecular pathway than the conventional adenoma-carcinoma pathway. Previous studies have hypothesised that BRAF mutation and promoter hypermethylation plays a role, but the...

Gene expression is dependent not only on genomic sequences, but also epigenetic control, in which the regulation of chromatin by histone modification plays a crucial role. Histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3) and histone H3 lysine 27 trimethylation (H3K27me3) are...
