WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 61 kDa.


  • Function

    Plays a role in cell-cell adhesion through heterophilic trans-interactions with nectin-like proteins or nectins, such as trans-interaction with PVRL2/nectin-2 at Sertoli-spermatid junctions. Trans-interaction with PVR induces activation of CDC42 and RAC small G proteins through common signaling molecules such as SRC and RAP1. Also involved in the formation of cell-cell junctions, including adherens junctions and synapses. Induces endocytosis-mediated down-regulation of PVR from the cell surface, resulting in reduction of cell movement and proliferation. Plays a role in the morphology of the ciliary body.
  • Tissue specificity

    Predominantly expressed in testis and placenta as well as in many cell lines, including epithelial cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the nectin family.
    Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain.

Thank you for contacting us. The immunogen sequence actually matches the dog sequence 100%, so it is very likely to react.
