  • Function
    Plays a role in cell-cell adhesion through heterophilic trans-interactions with nectin-like proteins or nectins, such as trans-interaction with PVRL2/nectin-2 at Sertoli-spermatid junctions. Trans-interaction with PVR induces activation of CDC42 and RAC small G proteins through common signaling molecules such as SRC and RAP1. Also involved in the formation of cell-cell junctions, including adherens junctions and synapses. Induces endocytosis-mediated down-regulation of PVR from the cell surface, resulting in reduction of cell movement and proliferation. Plays a role in the morphology of the ciliary body.
  • Tissue specificity
    Predominantly expressed in testis and placenta as well as in many cell lines, including epithelial cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nectin family.
    Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.

Thank you for your reply.

What I wanted to say is that the HEK293 cells do also have Nectin-3 expression. The antibody ab63931 is likely to recognize also the Nectin-3 isoforms expressed by the human cell. Therefore it could be that the obser...
