The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/10 - 1/50.
Flow Cyt 1/10 - 1/50.

ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


WB 1/50 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 130 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 88 kDa).

In recent lot testing (Dec 2013), the apparent MW (130 kDa) is higher than the predicted MW (88 kDa) in over expression lysate, human brain and U251 cells under reduced and denatured conditions.

ELISA 1/1000.


  • 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.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in brain, cerebellum, and kidney. Lung, pancreas, and gastric mucosa show a weak expression. Also expressed in certain liver and kidney carcinomas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 5 cadherin domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.

    Predicted band size: 88 kDa
    Observed band size: 88 kDa
    Additional bands at: 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

Human K Cadherin full length protein (ab132981) refers to the isoform 2 of the protein (Uniprot ID P55285) which is composed of 633 amino acids. This isoform lacks amino acids 664-790 that can be found on the isoform 1.

Anti-K Cadherin antibody, ab64917 will recognize only the isoform 1 (Uniprot ID P55285) of human K Cadherin (CDH6) from immunogen sequence analysis because this immunogen is synthetic peptide between 665-695 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human K Cadherin (CDH6).

Hence ab64917 cannot be used to detect ab132981 and unfortunately, we do not have any Human K Cadherin full length protein constituting of amino acids 1-790 (isoform 1).

We do however have the following antibodies which would recognise this protein (isoform2):

Anti-K Cadherin antibody (ab68342)
Anti-K Cadherin antibody - N-terminal (ab71434)

If you would prefer to purchase a K Cadherin isoform 1 protein rather than using one of the above antibodies, I would recommend that you look at the following website which has an excellent life science search facility which includes many suppliers: http://www.biocompare.com

My colleague is out of office today I am sorry to hear that your customer is experiencing difficulties using the antibody.

The batch/lot has been used in a publication with IF data:

Montserrat N et al. Generation of induced pluripotent stem cells from human renal proximal tubular cells with only two transcription factors, oct4 and sox2. J Biol Chem. 2012 Jul 13;287(29):24131-8.

If the customer has an overexpressed lysate as control, it might help with setting up the Western blot conditions. Alternatively,ab64917 recognize the same target on the C-term.

I hope this is helpful and please let me know if you need further assistance

Thank you for contacting us.

The immunogen peptide islocated between aa.

As you seem to be quite happy about the antibody's performance in WB and hopefully soon in ELISA, maybe I could encourage you to write an Abreview to share your experienceso that future customers can make an informed decision about the usefulness of a particular product for their specific experiments?
