Detects P‑Cadherin in ELISAs and Western blots. In sandwich immunoassays, less than 2% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) P‑Cadherin is observed and less than 0.3% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse E-Cadherin, rhN-Cadherin, and rhCadherin-8 is observed.
The adhesion of A431 human epithelial carcinoma cells (1 x 105 cells/well) to immobilized Recombinant Mouse P-Cadherin Fc Chimera (Catalog # 761-MP, 10 µg/mL, 100 µL/well) was maximally inhibited (80-100%) by 50 µg/mL of the antibody.
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Detection of P‑Cadherin by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of mouse embryo tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse P‑Cadherin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF761) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for P‑Cadherin at approximately 115 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
P‑Cadherin in A431 Human Cell Line.
P‑Cadherin was detected in immersion fixed A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line using Goat Anti-Mouse P‑Cadherin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF761) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 493-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (green; Catalog # NL003) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to intercellular junctions. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
P‑Cadherin in Mouse Embryo.
P‑Cadherin was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (15 dpc) using Goat Anti-Mouse P‑Cadherin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF761) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to connective tissue and lungs. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.
Detection of Mouse P‑Cadherin by Simple WesternTM.
Simple Western lane view shows lysates of mouse embryo tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for P‑Cadherin at approximately 115 kDa (as indicated) using 25 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Mouse P‑Cadherin Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF761) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system.

Placental Cadherin (P-Cadherin or PCAD) is a member of the cadherin family of cell adhesion molecules. Cadherins are calcium-dependent transmembrane proteins, which bind to one another in a homophilic manner. On their cytoplasmic side, they associate with the three catenins, alpha, beta, and gamma (plakoglobin). This association links the cadherin protein to the cytoskeleton. Without association with the catenins, the cadherins are non-adhesive. Cadherins play a role in development, specifically in tissue formation. They may also help to maintain tissue architecture in the adult. P-Cadherin is a classical cadherin molecule. Classical cadherins consist of a large extracellular domain which contains DXD and DXNDN repeats responsible for mediating calcium-dependent adhesion, a single-pass transmembrane domain, and a short carboxy-terminal cytoplasmic domain responsible for interacting with the catenins. Constitutive P-Cadherin expression is found in the epidermis, mesothelium, corneal epithelium, and uterine decidua. Mouse P-Cadherin is an 822 amino acid (aa) protein with a 27 aa signal sequence and a 795 aa propeptide. The mature protein begins at aa 100 and has a 542 aa extracellular region, a 27 aa transmembrane region, and a 153 aa cytoplasmic region.
