General description

N-cadherin is a calcium dependent cell adhesion molecule and is present mainly in cancer cells. Monoclonal anti-N-cadherin antibody reacts with the N-terminal portion of the extracellular domain of adipocyte adhesion molecule (ACAM).


Monoclonal anti-N-cadherin antibody reacts specifically with A-CAM molecule in human, mouse, rabbit, chicken and rat.


Affinity purified chicken heart A-CAM.


Monoclonal anti-N-cadherin antibody can be used in immunofluorescent microscopy, electron microscopy and immunoblotting to study the receptor localization of intercellular adherens. It may also be used to study the mechanism of adhesion and interaction in tissues.

Monoclonal anti-N-cadherin antibody can be used in immunohistochemistry (1: 100) and as primary antibody in western blotting (1:1000) .

Physical form

Monoclonal Anti-N-Cadherin antibody produced in mouse is supplied as ascites fluid containing 15mM sodium azide.

Storage and Stability

For continuous use, store at 2-8 °C for up to one month. For extended storage, solution may be frozen in working aliquots. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. If slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify by centrifugation before use.

Biochem/physiol Actions

N-cadherin regulates the Src kinase pathway and also promotes cell motility and invasion. It inhibits adherens junction formation and disrupts existing junctions of cultured lens cells.
