Protocadherin-1 in BG01V Human Stem Cells. Protocadherin-1 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Human Protocadherin-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5899) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Detection of Human Protocadherin-1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human hippocampus tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human Protocadherin-1 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5899) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Protocadherin-1 at approximately 150 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

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.
