Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Please refer to for technical protocols.
  3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
  4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.

R-Cadherin was first isolated from chicken retina, but was subsequently shown to be present and highly conserved in a variety of tissues from several different species. A 913 amino acid polypeptide, R-Cadherin is highly homologous to Cadherin-4, but is most closely related to another family member, N-Cadherin. In experiments using chimeric L cells expressing chicken or mouse Cadherins, those cells expressing mouse or chicken R-Cadherin were able to aggregate with each other as well as with cells expressing N-Cadherin. However, there was no aggregation of R-Cadherin expressing cells, with P- or E-Cadherin expressing cells. This suggests that the roles of specific cadherins are conserved among types in the determination of heterogenous cell segregation and distribution during tissue morphogenesis and maintenance.

Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
