Data Examples

Immunohistochemistry Nectin‑4 in Human Placenta. View Larger

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 (CTS013). Tissue was stained with the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

Background: Nectin-4

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 Nectin-4, respectively.
