Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab27462 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-VE Cadherin antibody - Intercellular Junction Marker (ab33168)
Purity> 90 % n/a.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

FunctionCadherins 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. This cadherin may play a important role in endothelial cell biology through control of the cohesion and organization of the intercellular junctions. It associates with alpha-catenin forming a link to the cytoskeleton.
Tissue specificityEndothelial tissues and brain.
Sequence similaritiesContains 5 cadherin domains.
modificationsPhosphorylated on tyrosine residues by KDR/VEGFR-2. Dephosphorylated by PTPRB.
Cellular localizationCell junction. Cell membrane. Found at cell-cell boundaries and probably at cell-matrix boundaries.
