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. CDH2 may be involved in neuronal recognition mechanism. In hippocampal neurons, may regulate dendritic spine density.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 5 cadherin domains.
  • Cellular localization

Answer

Thank you for letting me know.

I am sorry about the continued problems that you have been having with ab98952. I will this information onto the lab.

Based on the information you have provided, I believe the best option is to go ahead and either replace the antibody with a different antibody, against the same target, or refund the cost of the antibody.

Please let me know how you would like to proceed.

I look forward to your reply.

Answer

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I have been in contact with the lab regarding the staining pattern that you are observing whilst using ab98952. Our WB assay shows that the antibody is positive against recombinant protein. DNA sequencing results are consistent with the immungen sequence of this antibody, which are amino acids: **so we believe the antibody is against its intended target. Also we do have customer feedback that shows the anticipated staining pattern using this antibody. Therefore I believe that it may just be an issue with the vial that you received and so I would be very happy to send another vial of the antibody, free of charge, to see if that resolves the issue.
If, you would prefer to have a refund, then I would be happy to do that instead.
Please let me know how you would like to continue and I will be happy to help resolve this issue.
I look forward to your reply.
