Cadherin-5, also known as CDH5 is a classical cadherin which belongs to the cadherin superfamily. The CDH5 is located in a six-cadherin cluster in a region on the long arm of chromosome 16 which is involved in loss of heterozygosity events in breast as well as prostate cancer. CDH5 is a calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein composed of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. Furthermore, CDH5 functions as a classic cadherin by passing on to cells the ability to adhere in a homophilic manner, CDH5 plays a significant role in endothelial cell biology through control of the cohesion as well as organization of the intercellular junctions.
CDH5 produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 583 amino acids (25-599a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 66.2kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa).CDH5 is expressed with an 8 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
|Purification :||Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Content :||CDH5 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains phosphate buffered saline (pH7.4) and 10% glycerol.|
|Storage condition :||Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.|
