|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||88253 Da|
|Antigen Region||33-63 aa|
|Other Names||Cadherin-8, CDH8|
|Target/Specificity||This CDH8 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 33-63 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human CDH8.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||CDH8 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Mainly expressed in brain. Found in certain nerve cell lines, such as retinoblasts, glioma cells and neuroblasts|

CDH8 is a type II classical cadherin from the cadherin superfamily, integral membrane proteins that mediate calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion. Mature cadherin proteins are composed of a large N-terminal extracellular domain, a single membrane-spanning domain, and a small, highly conserved C-terminal cytoplasmic domain. The extracellular domain consists of 5 subdomains, each containing a cadherin motif, and appears to determine the specificity of the protein's homophilic cell adhesion activity. Type II (atypical) cadherins are defined based on their lack of a HAV cell adhesion recognition sequence specific to type I cadherins. This particular cadherin is expressed in brain and is putatively involved in synaptic adhesion, axon outgrowth and guidance.
