Recombinant Anti-E Cadherin antibody [EP700Y] - Intercellular Junction Marker (Allophycocyanin) (ab224960)

Overview

  • Product name

    Anti-E Cadherin antibody [EP700Y] - Intercellular Junction Marker (Allophycocyanin)
    See all E Cadherin primary antibodies
  • Description

    Rabbit monoclonal [EP700Y] to E Cadherin - Intercellular Junction Marker (Allophycocyanin)
  • Host species

    Rabbit
  • Conjugation

    Allophycocyanin. Ex: 645nm, Em: 660nm
  • Specificity

    E-cadherin contains a number of cleavage sites which may yield a complex fragmentation pattern in WB. Multiple bands between ~80-120 kDa may be observed. This antibody has been tested on human samples in both WB and IHC. Customer feedback (see Abreview) suggests the antibody does not perform well in IHC on mouse tissue.
  • Tested applications

  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide corresponding to Human E Cadherin aa 600-700. 5th domain.
    Database link: P12830

  • Positive control

    • Flow Cyt: MCF7 cells.

Target

  • Function

    Cadherins 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. CDH1 is involved in mechanisms regulating cell-cell adhesions, mobility and proliferation of epithelial cells. Has a potent invasive suppressor role. It is a ligand for integrin alpha-E/beta-7.
    E-Cad/CTF2 promotes non-amyloidogenic degradation of Abeta precursors. Has a strong inhibitory effect on APP C99 and C83 production.
  • Tissue specificity

    Non-neural epithelial tissues.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in CDH1 are the cause of hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC) [MIM:137215]. An autosomal dominant cancer predisposition syndrome with increased susceptibility to diffuse gastric cancer. Diffuse gastric cancer is a malignant disease characterized by poorly differentiated infiltrating lesions resulting in thickening of the stomach. Malignant tumors start in the stomach, can spread to the esophagus or the small intestine, and can extend through the stomach wall to nearby lymph nodes and organs. It also can metastasize to other parts of the body. Note=Heterozygous germline mutations CDH1 are responsible for familial cases of diffuse gastric cancer. Somatic mutations in the has also been found in patients with sporadic diffuse gastric cancer and lobular breast cancer.
    Defects in CDH1 are a cause of susceptibility to endometrial cancer (ENDMC) [MIM:608089].
    Defects in CDH1 are a cause of susceptibility to ovarian cancer (OC) [MIM:167000]. Ovarian cancer common malignancy originating from ovarian tissue. Although many histologic types of ovarian neoplasms have been described, epithelial ovarian carcinoma is the most common form. Ovarian cancers are often asymptomatic and the recognized signs and symptoms, even of late-stage disease, are vague. Consequently, most patients are diagnosed with advanced disease.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 5 cadherin domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    During apoptosis or with calcium influx, cleaved by a membrane-bound metalloproteinase (ADAM10), PS1/gamma-secretase and caspase-3 to produce fragments of about 38 kDa (E-CAD/CTF1), 33 kDa (E-CAD/CTF2) and 29 kDa (E-CAD/CTF3), respectively. Processing by the metalloproteinase, induced by calcium influx, causes disruption of cell-cell adhesion and the subsequent release of beta-catenin into the cytoplasm. The residual membrane-tethered cleavage product is rapidly degraded via an intracellular proteolytic pathway. Cleavage by caspase-3 releases the cytoplasmic tail resulting in disintegration of the actin microfilament system. The gamma-secretase-mediated cleavage promotes disassembly of adherens junctions.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell junction. Cell membrane. Endosome. Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network. Colocalizes with DLGAP5 at sites of cell-cell contact in intestinal epithelial cells. Anchored to actin microfilaments through association with alpha-, beta- and gamma-catenin. Sequential proteolysis induced by apoptosis or calcium influx, results in translocation from sites of cell-cell contact to the cytoplasm. Colocalizes with RAB11A endosomes during its transport from the Golgi apparatus to the plasma membrane.

Images

  • Overlay histogram showing MCF7 cells stained with ab224960 (red line). The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab224960, 1/500 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C.

    Isotype control antibody (black line) was Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Allophycocyanin (ab232814) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 40 mW Red laser (640nm) and 670/14 bandpass filter.
