Technical Data
Vascular Endothelial Cadherin (VE-Cadherin, CD144)
Human vascular endothelium cadherin is an endothelium-specific cadherin localized at the intercellular junctions. The antibody can be used to investigate the functional role of VE-cadherin.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry, Western Blot, Confocal microscopy and Functional applications. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Frozen, Formalin or acetone-fixed): 1ug/ml. Not suitable for use in paraffin sections.
Western Blot: 1ug/ml
Functional Applications: Interferes with VE-cadherin adhesion (reversible endothelium disruption). This effect mimics the transmigration of leukocytes or cancer cells through endothelium.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
