The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesIHC-P: Ready to use. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM Citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionPlays a major role in tight junction-specific obliteration of the intercellular space, through calcium-independent cell-adhesion activity.
Involvement in diseaseNote=CLDN3 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the claudin family.
