Detection of Human Caveolin‑1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HUVEC human umbilical vein endothelial cells and HMVEC human microvascular endothelial cells. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat Caveolin‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5736) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Caveolin‑1 at approximately 22 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.
Caveolin‑1 in A431 Human Cell Line. Caveolin‑1 was detected in immersion fixed A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Caveolin‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5736) at 8 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.

Caveolin-1 is a palmitoylated 22 kDa membrane-associated protein in caveolae, the cholesterol-rich invaginations in the plasma membrane involved in vesicular transport and regulation of lipid rafts. Caveolin-1 expression is dysregulated during cancer progression and exhibits both positive and negative effects on tumor progression. The central region of Caveolin-1 (aa 105‑125) is buried in the lipid layer, while the N- and C-terminal flanking regions are exposed to the cytoplasm and interact with many other proteins. Within these cytoplasmic regions, human Caveolin-1 shares 95% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat Caveolin-1. Alternate splicing in human, mouse and rat generates an isoform with a deletion of the N-terminal 31 residues.
