  • Function
    Cadherins 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. CDH2 may be involved in neuronal recognition mechanism. In hippocampal neurons, may regulate dendritic spine density.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 5 cadherin domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.

  • Immunofluorescent analysis of SHSY5Y cells, staining N-Cadherin (green) using ab19348 at 1/100 dilution.

    Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 1% Blocker BSA for 15 minutes. Samples were incubated with primary antibody for 1 hour at room temperature before incuation with DyLight 488-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody. F-Actin (red)

Thank you for your inquiry.

The immunogen of ab66025 is the full length protein and to our knowledge this clone was not mapped. We therefore do not know where exactly this antibody binds to within the N Cadherin.
