E-Cadherin (4A2) Monoclonal Antibody


Project #:  D1995-23


Antigen Specificity: E-Cadherin (Cadherin 1)


Clone: 4A2


Specificity: Reacts with ~135 kDa E-Cadherin protein


Host species: Mouse


Reactive species: Human, Mouse, Rat



Epithelial cadherin (E-cadherin) or Cadherin-1, also known as CAM 120/80, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CDH1 gene. CDH1 has also been designated as CD324. It is considered as an active suppressor of invasion and growth of many epithelial cancers.  E-Cadherin (4A2) Mouse mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total E-cadherin protein. This antibody does not cross-react with other cadherin proteins.


Applications: Western blot, Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Immunohistochemistry, Flow cytometry
