Cadherin P
Description:
P-cadherin is a 120kD Ca2+-dependent cell adhesion molecule, which appears to be expressed in cells having high growth activity and/or high differentiation potential. In the early mouse embryo, P-cadherin has been detected in the extra-embryonic ectoderm, visceral endoderm, Iateral plate mesoderm, and notocord. In the late embryo, P-cadherin is detected in the placenta, epidermis and other epithelial tissues, the pigmented retina, and the mesothelium. P-cadherin displays a rather unique distribution pattern in human tissues in that its expression is not detected in placental tissue. In humans, expression is restricted to epithelial tissues where it appears to be restricted to the basal or lower layers of strati ed epithelia.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, ELISA, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Also suitable as an inhibitor of P-cadherin dependent cell-cell contact. Other applications not tested.
