Detection of Human Protocadherin‑8 by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of HT‑29 human colon adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human Protocadherin‑8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5434) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for Protocadherin‑8 at approximately 115 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.
Protocadherin‑8 in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line.
Protocadherin‑8 was detected in immersion fixed MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line using Human Protocadherin‑8 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF5434) 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). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

Protocadherin 8 (PCDH-8, Arcadlin) is a 110-115 kDa group F member of the protocadherin family of molecules. It is expressed in breast epithelium, the synaptic membranes of neurons, and presumably forms Ca++-dependent homophilic complexes. In breast, it is believed to contribute to a stable epithelial architecture, while in brain, it impacts LTP. Mature human PCDH-8 is a type I transmembrane protein that is 1041 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 720aa extracellular domain (ECD) (aa 30-749) plus a 300 aa cytoplasmic region. There are six cadherin domains in the ECD (aa 30-723). Multiple splice variants exist. Two show deletions of aa 134-607 and 781-877, respectively, while a third shows a six aa substitution for aa 365-527. Over aa 30-689, human PCDH-8 shares 93% aa identity with mouse PCDH-8.
