    • 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 contacting us and your interest in our products.
    The anti-N Cadherin antibody [8C11], ab19348, was raised against a bacterial fusion protein corresponding to the extracellular domain of N-cadherin (a domain between EC3 and EC4, amino acid residues 92-593 from human N-cadherin).
    The anti-N Cadherin antibody [EPR1791-4], ab76011, meanwhile was raised against a synthetic peptide taken from within the residues 100-200 of human N-cadherin , also within the extracellular domain of the protein.
    I hope this information has been of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us again.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Can you please confirm what species your samples are from, including cell line or tissue type?

    Also what is the order number for this product? I will need to ensure that the order is not more than 6 months old before offering a replacement.

    What are the MWs of the bands in the WB image you had sent?

    Thank you for your cooperation and I look forward to your reply.

    Answer

    Thank you for your reply.

    You're having trouble with the ab76011, anti-N cadherin antibody, correct? Not the ab1791 histone H3? You had included ab76011 in your initial email, but ab1791 in your reply.

    Do you have a lot # from the vial? I see an order, but that was from June 2010. Is this your order?

    What species are your cells from?

    Have you run a loading control like beta actin?

    From the WB image that you sent, it looks like you're seeing "reverse banding" which signifies that the primary and/or secondary antibodies are too concentrated. We recommend using the primary from 1/5000 - 1/20,000 and incubating this overnight at 4C with 5% BSA in TBST. For the secondary, you should try 1/10,000 - 1/30,000and incubate this for 1 hr at RT with 5% BSA in TBST (check the manufacturer's recommendations for dilution recommendations).

    Would you be able to label the MW of the bands in the images you had sent? I'm pretty sure that diluting the primary and secondary more will resolve a lot of the background issues, but I'd like to see if you're getting any bands at the predicted 100 kDa.

    I hope this information helps. Please let us know if the protocol recommendations do not improve the banding.

    Thank you very much for your interest in Abcam antibodies.

    We have 2 rabbitantibodies directed against the extracellular part of the N-cadherin :

    https://www.abcam.com/ab76011, rabbit monoclonal, tested in Western Blot, ICC/IF, Flow Cytometry and in Mouse, Rat and Human.
    Please note that this product is aTissue Culture Supernatant and would need to be purified prior to conjugation. We recommend to use the TCS purification kithttps://www.abcam.com/Antibody-TCS-Purification-Kit-ab109207.htmlfor this purpose.

    https://www.abcam.com/ab95440, rabbit polyclonal, tested in Western Blot and Human, predicted to work with Mouse.
    This product is immunogen affinity purified but the storage buffer contains BSA that needs to be discarded prior to conjugation. We recommend to use the Antibody Purification Kit https://www.abcam.com/Antibody-Purification-Kit-Protein-A-ab102784.htmlfor this purpose.

    To our knowledge,none of the above antibodieshasbeen tested in IHC-P or IHC-Fr. Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy ab76011 or ab95440 now, test it in IHC-P or IHC-Fr and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of 1 free primary antibody.

    If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps:

    1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab76011 or ab95440 in IHC-P or IHC-Fr. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab76011 or ab95440 so please wait for my reply before ordering.

    2. Purchase ab76011 or ab95440 either by phone, fax, or online (https://www.abcam.com).

    3. Test it in IHC-P or IHC-Fr.

    4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.

    5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for anyprimary antibodyordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue.

    We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab76011 or ab95440 turns out to be unsuitable for IHC-P or IHC-Fr, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted.

    Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.
