Immunogen "Band 3" polypeptide of isolated desmosomes from Bovine muzzle epidermis
Clone DG3-10
Isotype IgG1
Specificity This antibody recognizes Desmoglein 1+2 (desmosome-specific cadherins) in desmosome-bearing cells. It does not react with cells containing plaque-bearing junctions of non-desmosomal type. Tumors Specifically Detected: All epithelium-derived tumors, notably carcinomas, and meningiomas. Polypeptide Reacting: Mr 165000 Desmoglein, "band 3" polypeptide of the desmosomal complex. Epitope Recognized: Localized at the repeating unit domain ("RUD") of the cytoplasmic C-terminal part of the polypeptide. Reactivities on Cultured Cell Lines (tested so far): A-431, MCF-7, TR-146, PLC and various other Human epithelial cell lines, Bovine BMGE+H, BMGE-H, MDBK.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Species reactivity (tested):Human, Bovine, Rat and Mouse.
Purification Affinity Chromatography on Protein A
Alternative Name Desmoglein-2 (DSG2 Antibody Abstract)
Background Desmosomes are cell-cell junctions between epithelial, myocardial and certain other cell types. Desmoglein 1 and 2 are calcium-binding transmembrane glycoprotein component of desmosomes in vertebrate epithelial cells. Currently, three desmoglein subfamily members have been identified and all are members of the cadherin cell adhesion molecule superfamily. These desmoglein gene family members are located in a cluster on chromosome 18.Synonyms: CDHF4, CDHF5, DG1, DGI, DSG-1, DSG-2, DSG1, DSG2, Desmoglein1, Desmoglein2, Desmosomal glycoprotein 1, HDGC, Pemphigus foliaceus antigen
