Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Purified B IH
Tight junctions (TJ) are specialized regions of cell-cell adhesion in epithelial and endothelial cell sheets. Claudins are the major components tight junction strands. In the brain and lung, Claudin 5 was exclusively concentrated at cell-cell borders in endothelial cells of blood vessels, but not at those of epithelial cells. In contrast, Claudin 5 was restricted to endothelial cells of arteries, but not veins and capillaries in the kidney (1). It is also reported that Claudins-2,-3,-4 and -5 showed heterogenic expression and subcellular localization in the rat liver, pancreas and gut.2 Mouse anti-Claudin 5 stained 100% (20/20) of colon cancer tissues with their matched adjacent and remote mucosa. The staining patterns in both the cancer tissues or the matched mucosa are cytoplasmic and membranous. In breast carcinoma, 62% (33/53) of the tissues stained positive, but the staining pattern was mainly cytoplasmic.
