anti-VE Cadherin phospho (Tyr685) antibody

anti-VE Cadherin phospho (Tyr685) antibody for Western blot and Human

Cancer antibody; Controls and Markers antibody; Signaling Transduction antibody


Product Description Rabbit Polyclonal antibody recognizes VE Cadherin phospho (Tyr685)
Tested Reactivity Hu
Predict Reactivity Ms, Rat
Tested Application WB
Specificity The purified antibody detects a ~140 kDa band corresponding to VE-cadherin in western blots of human endothelial cells treated with pervanadate, and this band is not detected in untreated cells or after alkaline phosphatase treatment. This sequence is not conserved in other cadherins.
Host Rabbit
Clonality Polyclonal
Isotype IgG
Target Name VE Cadherin
Antigen Species Human
Immunogen Phosphospecific peptide (coupled to carrier protein) around Tyr685 of Human VE-cadherin.
Conjugation Un-conjugated
Alternate Names 7B4 antigen; 7B4; Cadherin-5; VE-cadherin; CD144; CD antigen CD144; Vascular endothelial cadherin

GeneID: 1003 Human CDH5

Swiss-port # P33151 Human Cadherin-5

Gene Symbol CDH5
Gene Full Name cadherin 5, type 2 (vascular endothelium)
Background This gene is a classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily and is located in a six-cadherin cluster in a region on the long arm of chromosome 16 that is involved in loss of heterozygosity events in breast and prostate cancer. The encoded protein is a calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion glycoprotein comprised of five extracellular cadherin repeats, a transmembrane region and a highly conserved cytoplasmic tail. Functioning as a classic cadherin by imparting to cells the ability to adhere in a homophilic manner, the protein may play an important role in endothelial cell biology through control of the cohesion and organization of the intercellular junctions. An alternative splice variant has been described but its full length sequence has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function Cadherins are calcium-dependent cell adhesion proteins. They preferentially interact with themselves in a homophilic manner in connecting cells; cadherins may thus contribute to the sorting of heterogeneous cell types. This cadherin may play a important role in endothelial cell biology through control of the cohesion and organization of the intercellular junctions. It associates with alpha-catenin forming a link to the cytoskeleton. Acts in concert with KRIT1 to establish and maintain correct endothelial cell polarity and vascular lumen. These effects are mediated by recruitment and activation of the Par polarity complex and RAP1B. Required for activation of PRKCZ and for the localization of phosphorylated PRKCZ, PARD3, TIAM1 and RAP1B to the cell junction. [UniProt]

    Western blot: Human umbilical vein endothelial cells stimulated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min. then the blots were untreated (Lanes 1 & 3) or treated with alkaline phosphatase (Lanes 2 & 4). The blots were stained with ARG20567 anti-VE Cadherin phospho (Tyr685) antibody (Lanes 1 & 2) or Mouse monoclonal anti-VE-cadherin antibody (Lanes 3 & 4).
