Technical Data
Cadherin 14, 15, M
M-cadherin belongs to the cadherin family of proteins, which are calcium-dependent, protease-sensitive molecules that mediate homotypic cell-cell adhesion. M-cadherin is highly expressed in developing and regenerating skeletal muscles.1 In postnatal mature myofibers and after completion of myotube formation in vitro, M-cadherin expression is downregulated, but the protein remains present in quiescent satellite cells.2 M-cadherin is also present in the contactus adherens in the granular cell layer of the cerebellar glomerulus.3 Studies of skeletal muscle and cerebellum in M-cadherin-null mutant mice have demonstrated that other cadherins such as N-cadherin and R-cadherin may compensate for absent M-cadherin function.4 Although the calculated molecular weight of M-cadherin is ~86kDa, the apparent molecular molecular weight is ~130kDa due to glycosylation.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blotting. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 0.11ug/mL
Western Blotting: 13ug/mL
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
