Technical Data
Vascular Endothelial Cadherin (VE-Cadherin, CD144) (FITC)
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 Flow Cytometry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
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. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. FITC conjugates are sensitive to light.
