Detection of Claudin‑3 in PC‑3 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry.
PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Claudin‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4620, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB003, open histogram), followed by Phycoerythrin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG F(ab')2 Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0102B).
Claudin‑3 in Human Colon.
Claudin‑3 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human colon array using Mouse Anti-Human Claudin‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4620) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Claudin‑3 in PC‑3 Human Cell Line.
Claudin‑3 was detected in immersion fixed PC‑3 human prostate cancer cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Claudin‑3 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4620) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Claudin-3 is a 23 kDa multipass membrane protein in the claudin family of epithelial tight junction proteins. Claudin-3 is upregulated by EGF and in inflammation and a variety of epithelial cancers. Its expression is lost in the blood brain barrier during pathological disruptions of that structure. Claudin-3 binding to the Clostridium perfringes exotoxin induces epithelial cell lysis. Human Claudin-3 shares 91% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat Claudin-3.
