The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesICC/IF: Use at an assay dependent dilution (PMID 19129472).
IHC-P: 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol (boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min).
Not yet 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.
Involvement in diseaseNote=CLDN4 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.
