General description

Afadin is a multidomain protein that binds F-actin and E-catenin proteins at cell-cell adheren junctions. I-afadin is a ubiquitously expressed splice variant of afadin that contains PDZ and F-actin binding domains at the C-terminal end. I-afadin is homologous to the human AF-6 protein .


Anti-l-Afadin antibody is specific for I-afadin (approximately 200 kDa). It also binds I-afadin in rat, mouse, dog and human.


Synthetic peptide sequence corresponding to amino acid residues 1814-1829 of rat afadin with N-terminal cysteine conjugated to maleimide-activated KLH.


Anti-l-Afadin antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
• western blotting
• immunofluorescence experiments
• immunocytochemistry
• immunohistochemistry

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% BSA and 15 mM sodium azide

Biochem/physiol Actions

AF-6/Afadin regulates the formation of tight and adherens junctions in the cell and its absence in mice leads to embryonic defects and lethality . Afadin is implicated in primary breast cancer and pancreatic cancer. It downregulates the process of migration and metastasis in cancer cells.
