- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Vascular endothelial cadherin
RelevanceCadherins are members of a multigene family of single chain glycoprotein receptors mediating calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion. They play an important role in the growth and development of cells via the mechanisms of control of tissue architecture and the maintenance of tissue integrity. Cadherins are expressed in a tissue specific manner and and are required for assembly of cells into solid tissue. Individual cadherin molecules are known to co-operate with each other to form a linear cell adhesion zipper. In adhesion junctions cadherins are bound to beta and gamma catenins which in turn bind to alpha catenin, an actin binding protein. Cadherins play an important part in tumor invasion and metastasis.
