Purification notesPurified from ascites.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab14415 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
IHC-P: Used at a dilution of 1/10 for 30 min on human bladder cancer (see Abreview).
IP: Use at a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml.
WB: Use at a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 165 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 122 kDa).
Not tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionComponent of intercellular desmosome junctions. Involved in the interaction of plaque proteins and intermediate filaments mediating cell-cell adhesion.
Tissue specificityAll of the tissues tested and carcinomas.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DSG2 are the cause of familial arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia type 10 (ARVD10) [MIM:610193]; also known as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy 10 (ARVC10). ARVD is an autosomal dominant disease characterized by partial degeneration of the myocardium of the right ventricle, electrical instability, and sudden death. It is clinically defined by electrocardiographic and angiographic criteria; pathologic findings, replacement of ventricular myocardium with fatty and fibrous elements, preferentially involve the right ventricular free wall.
Genetic variations in DSG2 are the cause of susceptibility to cardiomyopathy dilated type 1BB (CMD1BB) [MIM:612877]. A disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death.
Sequence similaritiesContains 4 cadherin domains.
DomainCalcium may be bound by the cadherin-like repeats.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > desmosome.

Developed using the ECL technique.
Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 122 kDa
Observed band size: 125 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 100 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
Exposure time: 3 minutes
The blot was blocked with 5% milk for 1 hour at 21°C and incubated with the primary antibody for 12 hours at 4°C.
The antibody detects a species of the predicted mobility (125 kDa) in Human cell lines U2OS (1) and 293T (2). No signal was observed in extracts from other species, suggesting that this antibody does not cross-react with AGMk, Hm, Ms or Rat.
