Product Description

This Cadherin-Catenin Antibody Sampler kit contains reagents to examine the total protein levels of key proteins found in cell-cell adherens junctions. The kit contains enough primary and secondary antibodies to perform four Western blot experiments.


Specificity / Sensitivity

Each antibody in the Cadherin-Catenin Antibody Sampler Kit recognizes only its specific target and does not cross-react with other family members. Pan-Cadherin (28E12) Rabbit mAb #4073 detects endogenous levels of total cadherin proteins.


Source / Purification

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the amino-terminal sequence of human α-E-catenin, residues surrounding Arg526 of human N-cadherin protein, residues near the carboxy terminus of human P-cadherin, residues surrounding 780 of human E-cadherin, residues surrounding Pro714 of human ß-catenin protein, and a synthetic peptide corresponding to a conserved region of human N-, R-, E- and P-Cadherin.

Adherens junctions are dynamic structures that form cell-cell contacts and are important in development, differentiation, tissue integrity, morphology and cell polarity. They are composed of cadherins that are transmembrane proteins that bind cadherins on adjacent cells in a calcium dependent manner. On the cytoplasmic side of adherens junctions, the cadherins associate with β-catenin, γ-catenin and p120 catenin (δ). β-catenin and γ-catenin associate with α-catenin, which links the cadherin-catenin complex to the actin cytoskeleton (1,2). Recent studies indicate that cancer cells exhibit increased N-cadherin and diminished E-cadherin expression. E-cadherin is considered a suppressor of invasive cancer cell growth and this change in cadherin expression associated with cancer progression is termed the “cadherin switch”. β-catenin is one of the key downstream effectors in the Wnt signaling pathway and has been implicated in early embryonic development and tumorigenesis (3-5).
