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: 82 kDa.
Potential calcium-dependent cell-adhesion protein. May be required for the structural integrity of the outer segment (OS) of photoreceptor cells.
Contains 6 cadherin domains.
Undergoes proteolytic cleavage; produces a soluble 95 kDa N-terminal fragment and a 25 kDa cell-associated C-terminal fragment.
Cell membrane. Localized at the junction between the inner and outer segments of rod and cone photoreceptors cells. Confined to the base of the OS. Localized on the edges of nascent evaginating disks on the side of the OS opposite the connecting cilium. Expressed at postnatal day 2 at the apical tip of the rod photoreceptor cells, the site of the developing OS. Colocalized with rhodopsin between postnatal days 2 and 9 at the base of the growing OS region.
