Detection of Protocadherin‑1 in A431 Human Cell Line by Flow Cytometry. A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line was stained with Mouse Anti-Human Protocadherin‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5899, filled histogram) or isotype control antibody (Catalog # MAB002, open histogram), followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B).
Protocadherin‑1 in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. Protocadherin‑1 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Mouse Anti-Human Protocadherin‑1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5899) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Protocadherin-1 (PCDH-1; also PC42) is a 150 - 170 kDa δ1 subgroup member of the nonclustered protocadherin family of molecules. It is expressed on macrophages, respiratory epithelium, endothelial cells and neurons. Protocadherin-1 apparently forms homophilic Ca++-dependent complexes and likely serves as an adhesion molecule. Human full-length Protocadherin-1 precursor is 1237 amino acids (aa) in length. It is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains a 795 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 58-852) plus a 364 aa cytoplasmic region. There are seven cadherin domains in the ECD (aa 58-844), and an RRVTF cytoplasmic motif that binds PP1 alpha phosphatase. There are multiple splice variants. Alternative start sites exist at Met23 and Met235, there is a deletion of aa 209-220, and a 27 aa substitution for aa 1034-1237. Over aa 58-162, human Protocadherin-1 shares 96% aa identity with mouse Protocadherin-1.
