Anti-E-Cadherin Antibody, Rabbit Polyclonal の画像
Immunochemical staining of human E-Cad in human skin with rabbit polyclonal antibody (1:5000, formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections).
Immunochemical staining of human E-Cad in human colon carcinoma with rabbit polyclonal antibody (1:5000, formalin-fixed paraffin embedded sections).
Immunofluorescence staining of E-Cad in MCF7 cells. Cells were fixed with 4% PFA,blocked with 10% serum, and incubated with rabbit anti-human E-Cad polyclonal antibody (dilution ratio 1:1000) at 4℃ overnight. Then cells were stained with the Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated Goat Anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody (green) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Positive staining was localized to cell membrane.
Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins which preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells, and thus may contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell type. E-cadherin (E-Cad), also known as CDH1 and CD324, is a calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule the intact function of which is crucial for the establishment and maintenance of epithelial tissue polarity and structural integrity. Mutations in CDH1 occur in diffuse type gastric cancer, lobular breast cancer, and endometrial cancer. In human cancers, partial or complete loss of E-cadherin expression correlates with malignancy. During apoptosis or with calcium influx, E-Cad is cleaved by the metalloproteinase to produce fragments of about 38 kDa (E-CAD/CTF1), 33 kDa (E-CAD/CTF2) and 29 kDa (E-CAD/CTF3), respectively. E-Cad has been identified as a potent invasive suppressor, as downregulation of E-cadherin expression is involved in dysfunction of the cell-cell adhesion system, and often correlates with strong invasive potential and poor prognosis of human carcinomas.
