General description

Cadherins are members of a multigene family of single chain glycoprotein receptors mediating Ca2+ -dependent cell-cell adhesion. The N-terminal part of these molecule is exposed on the external cell surface and contains the putative homophilic binding sites. This is followed by a typical single transmembrane sequence and usually a cytoplasmic C-terminal tail which mediates interaction with the microfilament system through molecules such as catenins, plakoglobin, vinculin, and α-actinin.
Cadherins that are primarily located in areas of cell-cell contacts are involved in selective cell sorting and in the mechanical cytoplasmic response. They are implicated in morphogenetic processes, intercellular signalling and in tumor invasiveness and metastasis.
Multiple cadherins have been characterized from diverse species and tissues including E-Cadherin, N-Cadherin (A-CAM), P-Cadherin, V-Cadherin, R-Cadherin and T-Cadherin. Specific polyclonal antibodies against a highly conserved sequence from the cytoplasmic C-terminal of N-Cadherin has been prepared.

Neural-cadherin (N-cadherin) is a member of the classic cadherin family. It is mainly expressed in neural and mesenchymal tissues.


Detection of members of the cadherin family or genetically engineered proteins containing the C-terminal cadherin tail, stains adherens type cell-cell junctions regardless of their cadherin type.

Monoclonal Anti-Pan Cadherin antibody reacts extensively with all known members of the cadherin family. The cadherins migrate in the molecular weight range of 125 to 140 kDa and are tissue dependent. The antibody reacts using frozen sections, protease-digested, formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded, Bouin′s-fixed and acetone-fixed tissue sections. It reacts with cultured cell line preparations. Cross-reaction has been observed with human, rabbit, bovine, goat, sheep, dog, pig, guinea pig, hamster, cat, rat, mouse, psammomys, chicken, frog and snake.


synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal amino acids of chicken N-Cadherin with an extra N-terminal lysine residue (24 amino acids) coupled to KLH.


Monoclonal Anti-Pan Cadherin antibody produced in mouse has been used in:
• fluorescence imaging
• immunohistochemistry
• western blotting
• immunoblotting
• immunofluorescence

Monoclonal Anti-Pan Cadherin may be used for: immunochemical and immunocytochemical detection of members of the cadherin family in normal and neoplastic cells and tissues; identification of genetically engineered proteins containing the C-terminal cadherin tail; screening of cDNA expression libraries for identification of novel members of the cadherin family and demonstration of adherens-type cell-cell junctions irrespective of their cadherin subtype.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Neural-cadherin (N-cadherin) has an oncogenic role in bladder cancer, breast cancer, prostate cancer and melanoma. It stimulates the heterotypic adhesion of melanoma cells to dermal fibroblast cells. N-cadherin acts as a critical modulator for the migration of neuronal progenitors. It is essential for the proper cohesion and polarisation of neuroepithelial cells. N-cadherin is important for normal gastrulation and neural crest development. It is required for myogenesis and myotube formation.
