  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide: DYDYLNDWGPRFKKLADMYGGGDD conjugated to KLH by a Glutaraldehyde linker, corresponding to C terminal amino acids 889-912 of Chicken pan Cadherin.

  • General notesImmunohistochemistry This antibody has not been tested on frozen sections but has been tested on both cultured cells and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded, protease digested sections so chances are it will work on frozen sections. It has also been tested on heart sections and MDBK cells. This antibody should work on bovine samples although we have not tested it specifically.

    This product is useful for the detection of members of the cadherin family or genetically engineered proteins containing the C-terminal cadherin tail, and for demonstration of adherens type cell-cell junctions regardless of their cadherin type.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6529 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Notes
IHC-P 1/1000. Perform enzymatic antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB 1/200. On chicken and rabbit heart extract this antibody detects a single band at 135 kD.
ICC/IF 1/100. Fix cells with 2-4% paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature, followed by 10-minute incubation with 0.2% Triton X-100 (see Gellersen et al 2007 and Kaur et al 2006).
Electron Microscopy Use at an assay dependent dilution.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent dilution. Fix with ice cold ethanol.


Anti-pan Cadherin antibody images

  • Immunofluorescent imaging of human cells (U2OS) with ab6529 confirms the specificity of this antibody.  Pan cadherin antibody recognises predominantly membranous signal with some fainter cytoplasmic staining corresponding to soluble cadherin. No nuclear staining is seen. 

    IF was performed with a standard paraformaldehyde technique (fixed in PBS buffered PFH 4% for 5 minutes, permeabilised with 0.5% triton-PBS for 5 minutes, blocked with 5% milk / 0.2% tween for one hour.  Primary antibody used at 1/100 in 5% milk / 0.2% TWEEN for one hour, secondary antibody for 30 minutes.  All blocking and incubation steps carried out at 37 degrees C. Nuclei were stained with Hoechst stain.

  • ab6529 staining pan Cadherin in human bone marrow cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. The cells were formaldehyde fixed and blocked in 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted, 1/200 and incubated with sample for 9 hour at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG, diluted 1/200 was used as secondary.

  • ab6529 staining pan Cadherin in rat kidney tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone and then blocked with 2% BSA for 2 hours at 25°C followed by incubation with the primary antibody, at a 1/200 dilution, for 9 hours at 4°C. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rabbit IgG conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 (green) used at a 1/500 dilution.

  • ab6529 staining pan Cadherin in murine liver cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence. The cells were fixed in formaldehyde, permeabilised in 0.4% Triton X-100 and then blocked using 10% serum for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were then incubated with primary antibody at 1/200 for 17 hours at 4°C. The secondary antibody used was a goat anti-rabbit IgG conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 594 (red) used at a 1/1000 dilution. The other secondary antibody used was an Alexa Fluor® 488 (green) goat anti-mouse IgG for detection of a specific cytosolic protein.

Thank you for the images of the staining with ab22744.

I agree the staining is not what is usually observed for cadherin. I think you are expecting something like what one of our reviewers saw. The data is at this link:
