General description

Plakoglobin is a desmosomal protein that regulates developmental signalling in vertebrates. Tyrosine phosphorylation of plakoglobin has been linked to adenocarcinomas . Plakoglobin may function as a tumor suppressor in ovarian and breast cancers .


The antibody recognizes the plakoglobin (catenin-γ) molecule (85 kDa and possibly a slightly lower band) by immunoblotting. It does not cross-react with β-catenin. The antibody reacts with plakoglobin in bovines, humans and dogs, but does not react with β catenin.


recombinant chicken plakoglobin.


Monoclonal anti-plakoglobin (catenin γ) antibody is suitable for use in immunocytochemistry (using MDCK cells), immunoprecipitation, and in immunoblotting . The antibody may also be used for immunohistochemistry (frozen sections), microarray, western blot (1:500, using cultured MDBK cells) and indirect immunofluorescence (1:1000, using cultured MDBK cells).
