  • Tested applications

    Suitable for: WB, ICC/IF, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity

    Reacts with: Rat, Human
    Predicted to work with: Mouse
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide corresponding to Rat SynCAM/CADM1 (C terminal).

  • Positive control

    • rat brain lysate
  • General notes

    SynCAM/CADM1 is a brain-specific, immunoglobulin domain. It functions as a homophilic cell adhesion molecule at the synapse. Full-length SynCAM/CADM1 has been shown to induce synaptic assembly. It has also been shown that SynCAM/CADM1, in conjunction with glutamate receptors, can sufficiently create a functional postsynaptic response.

     This product was previously labelled as SynCAM

  • Function

    Mediates homophilic cell-cell adhesion in a Ca(2+)-independent manner. Also mediates heterophilic cell-cell adhesion with CADM3 and PVRL3 in a Ca(2+)-independent manner. Acts as a tumor suppressor in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. Interaction with CRTAM promotes natural killer (NK) cell cytotoxicity and interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) secretion by CD8+ cells in vitro as well as NK cell-mediated rejection of tumors expressing CADM3 in vivo. May contribute to the less invasive phenotypes of lepidic growth tumor cells. In mast cells, may mediate attachment to and promote communication with nerves. CADM1, together with MITF, is essential for development and survival of mast cells in vivo. May act as a synaptic cell adhesion molecule that drives synapse assembly. May be involved in neuronal migration, axon growth, pathfinding, and fasciculation on the axons of differentiating neurons. May play diverse roles in the spermatogenesis including in the adhesion of spermatocytes and spermatids to Sertoli cells and for their normal differentiation into mature spermatozoa.
  • 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.
  • Domain

    The cytoplasmic domain appears to play a critical role in proapoptosis and tumor suppressor activity in NSCLC.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane. Associates with perinuclear and plasma membranes in vivo. Localized to the basolateral plasma membrane of epithelial cells in gall bladder.

Dear Dr. Luo, Thank you for your patience. I have received a reply from the original of ab3910. The peptide sequence is proprietary information and cannot be released. As I've already mentioned in the last e-mail, the immunogen is "a synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal region of the rat protein". This antibody has not been tested for cross-reactivity with other family members or isoforms. I'm sorry that I can't provide additional information. Please don't hesitate to contact us again if you have further questions.

Thank you for your enquiry. HEK is HEK293T cells transfected with rat SynCAM. A scientist at UT Southwestern tested this antibody and said: "...the glycosylation pattern of SynCAM is different in brain and heterogously expressing cells. As you can see from the blot and in the original paper [Science. 297: 1525-1531 (2002)], Syncam in brain comes in a core glycosylated population of 50kDa and a population of higher glycosylated bands above 65kDa. When transfected in heterologous cells, only a single, glycosylated higher MW population is observed." We will update the datasheet and add the image as soon as we can,

Thank you for your enquiry, the heterologous cell lysates tested were HEK cell lysates. We are currently sourcing the image for the blot of synCAM in the rat brain lysate and HEK cell lysate and as soon as we receive it we will add it to the datasheet, Please let us know if you require further information,
