The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 129 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionCellular adhesion molecule that may play an important role in cell-cell interactions at interendothelial junctions. Promotes homotypic calcium dependent aggregation and adhesion and clusters at intercellular junctions. Unable to bind to catenins, weakly associates with the cytoskeleton.
Tissue specificityExpressed in highly vascularized tissues including the heart and placenta, but most tissues contain a low level of expression. Prominent expression in the spleen.
