Nectin‑4 in Human Placenta. Nectin‑4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human placenta using 10 µg/mL Goat Anti-Human Nectin‑4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2659) overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Nectin-4 is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the Nectin
family of Ig superfamily proteins. It is both a homophilic and
heterophilic (with Nectin-1) cell adhesion molecule that is expressed
in the embryo and in breast carcinoma. A soluble form of Nectin-4 is
generated from the membrane protein via the action of TACE/ADAM-17. The
extracellular domain of human Nectin-4 shares 90% and 92% amino acid
sequence homology with the corresponding regions of mouse and rat
