Description: The 8C11 monoclonal antibody reacts with human CD325, also known as N-Cadherin. CD325 is a 130 kDa member of the Cadherin superfamily, and consists of five extracellular repeats, a transmembrane domain and a cytoplasmic domain. CD325 deficient mice die at day 10 of gestation and embryos display major heart defects and malformed neural tubes and somites. Consistent with this, CD325 has been implicated in several aspects of cardiac development including the precardiac mesoderm, establishment of left-right symmetry and cardiac looping morphogenesis. Furthermore, CD325 is normally involved in inducing cell cycle arrest and its expression is frequently dysregulated in cancer cells. Applications Reported: This 8C11 antibody has been reported for use in flow cytometric analysis, immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting (WB), and immunohistochemical staining of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue sections. Applications Tested: This 8C11 antibody has been tested by flow cytometric analysis of HeLa cells. This can be used at less than or equal to 0.5 µg per test. A test is defined as the amount (µg) of antibody that will stain a cell sample in a final volume of 100 µL. Cell number should be determined empirically but can range from 10^5 to 10^8 cells/test. The 8C11 antibody has been tested by immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed paraffin embedded tissue using low pH antigen retrieval at less than or equal to 10 µg/mL.It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest. Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE. Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC. Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered. N-cadherin is a 140 kDa protein belonging to a family of transmembrane molecules that mediate calcium-dependent intercellular adhesion. Cadherins are involved in controlling morphogenetic movements during development and regulate cell surface adhesion through homotypic adhesion with the same cadherin species. N-cadherin ft.s function is dependent on its association with the actin-cytoskeleton and is mediated through interactions between the C-terminal region of N-cadherin and the cytoplasmic catenin proteins. The stability of this association is regulated by phosphorylation and dephosphorylation of beta-catenin. Further, N-cadherin is a calcium dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein comprised of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. The protein functions during gastrulation and is required for establishment of left-right asymmetry.
