ICC/IF Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.


  • FunctionCadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. M-cadherin is part of the myogenic program and may provide a trigger for terminal muscle differentiation.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the brain and cerebellum.
  • Involvement in diseaseA chromosomal aberration involving CDH15 and KIRREL3 is found in a patient with severe mental retardation and dysmorphic facial features. Translocation t(11;16)(q24.2;q24).
    Mental retardation, autosomal dominant 3
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 5 cadherin domains.
  • DomainThree calcium ions are usually bound at the interface of each cadherin domain and rigidify the connections, imparting a strong curvature to the full-length ectodomain.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.

  • Anti-M Cadherin antibody (ab87374) at 1 µg/ml + Cerebellum Mouse Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Exposure time : 5 minutes
  • ICC/IF image of ab87374 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab87374 at 10µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti- rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
