General description

Catenin are distinct peripheral cytosolic proteins and are classified into α-, β- and γ-catenin (102 kDa, 94 kDa and 86 kDa respectively. It is found in varying abundance in many developing and adult tissues.


The antibody does not cross react with α-catenin or γ-catenin (plakoglobin).


synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal region (amino acids 768-781) of human/mouse β-catenin, conjugated with gluteraldehyde to KLH.


Anti-β-Catenin antibody produced in rabbit has been used in
• co-immunoprecipitation
• immunoblotting
• immunofluorescence
• immunoperoxidase assay

Biochem/physiol Actions

Catenins bind, directly or indirectly, to the conserved cytoplasmic tail domain of the cell adhesion cadherins. The protein, β-catenin, binds directly to the cytoplasmic tail of E-cadherin. Plakoglobin (probably identical to γ-catenin) and β-catenin are structural and possibly functional mammalian homologues of armadillo (arm), a Drosophila protein involved in signal transduction. It binds to the amino terminus of α-catenin and also interacts with the cytosolic protein product of the human tumor suppressor gene Adenomatous polyposis coli (APC). The central core region of β-catenin is involved in mediation of the interaction of cadherin-catenin complex with the epidermal growth factor receptor. The protein, β-catenin, is the target of two signal transduction pathways mediated by the protooncogenes Src and wingless-related integration site (Wnt-1).
