Protocadherin‑15 in YT Human Cell Line. Protocadherin‑15 was detected in immersion fixed YT human leukemia natural killer‑like cell line using Mouse Anti-Human Protocadherin‑15 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB6729) at 10 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.

Protocadherin-15 (PCDH-15) is a 250-270 kDa "other" member of the nonclustered group of the protocadherin family of molecules. In the adult, it is expressed on the base of hair cell stereocilia in the Organ of Corti, on cerebellar granule cells, and on rod and cone photoreceptors. In the ear, it is expressed as a homodimer, and binds (in trans) to cadherin 23 homodimers on adjacent stereocilia. Mature human PCDH-15 is a type I transmembrane protein that is 1929 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 1350 aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 27-1376) plus a 558 aa cytoplasmic region. There are 11 cadherin domains in the ECD (aa 40-1259). Multiple splice forms are reported. One is a soluble 110 kDa form that shows a five aa substitution for aa 957-1955. Another contains a seven aa substitution for aa 1119-1125. Others show substitutions or deletions in either the extracellular or cytoplasmic domains. Over aa 27-1376 (the ECD), human PCDH-15 shares 95% aa sequence identity with mouse PCDH-15.
