Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IP IH IF
The catenins (a, b, and gamma) are ubiquitously expressed cytoplasmic proteins that associate with E-cadherin to mediate Ca2+ dependent cell-cell adhesion, a process which is regulated by phosphorylation of protein tyrosine residues. In addition to E-cadherin, b-catenin also associates with several other proteins, including N-cadherin, the tumor suppressor gene product APC (adematous polyposis coli), and a-catenin. The role of the cadherins in several human cancers is currently under investigation. b-catenin appears to play an important role in the Wingless-type (Wnt) frizzled protein receptor pathway associated with cancer of the colon.
