- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Vascular endothelial cadherin
Vascular epithelium cadherin
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. This cadherin may play a important role in endothelial cell biology through control of the cohesion and organization of the intercellular junctions. It associates with alpha-catenin forming a link to the cytoskeleton.
Tissue specificityEndothelial tissues and brain.
Sequence similaritiesContains 5 cadherin domains.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated on tyrosine residues by KDR/VEGFR-2. Dephosphorylated by PTPRB.
Cellular localizationCell junction. Cell membrane. Found at cell-cell boundaries and probably at cell-matrix boundaries.
