Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  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. Please refer to for technical protocols.

The 14/Beta-Catenin monoclonal antibody specifically binds to Beta-Catenin  (β-Catenin). β-Catenin is a 92 kDa protein that binds to the cytoplasmic tail of E-Cadherin. The cadherins, transmembrane adhesion molecules, are found with catenins at adherens junctions (zonula adherens). Deletions in the cytoplasmic domain of E-Cadherin which eliminate catenin binding also result in a loss of cell adhesion, indicating that this binding is essential for E-Cadherin function. Although the α- and β-Catenins have been cloned, very little is known about their biochemical roles. However a link between β-Catenin and colon cancer has been described. β-Catenin was found to co-immunoprecipitate with the APC tumor suppressor protein in human colorectal tumor cell lines, as well as in human kidney 293 cells. E-Cadherin, however, was not detectable in these complexes. Thus the APC-Catenin complex may be affecting the transmission of contact inhibition signals and/or the regulation of cell adhesion.

Format Details
Down Arrow Up Arrow
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.
