The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa.
FunctionPlays a major role in tight junction-specific obliteration of the intercellular space, through calcium-independent cell-adhesion activity.
Tissue specificityLiver, kidney. Also found in ear.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CLDN14 are the cause of deafness autosomal recessive type 29 (DFNB29) [MIM:605608]. DFNB29 is a form of sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the claudin family.
