|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||99987 Da|
|Antigen Region||659-687 aa|
|Other Names||Desmocollin-1, Cadherin family member 1, Desmosomal glycoprotein 2/3, DG2/DG3, DSC1, CDHF1|
|Target/Specificity||This DSC1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 659-687 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human DSC1.|
|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||DSC1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of intercellular desmosome junctions. Involved in the interaction of plaque proteins and intermediate filaments mediating cell-cell adhesion. May contribute to epidermal cell positioning (stratification) by mediating differential adhesiveness between cells that express different isoforms. Linked to the keratinization of epithelial tissues.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell junction, desmosome|
|Tissue Location||Strongly expressed in epidermis, less in lymph node and tongue|

DSC1 is a calcium-dependent glycoprotein that is a member of the desmocollin subfamily of the cadherin superfamily. These desmosomal family members, along with the desmogleins, are found primarily in epithelial cells where they constitute the adhesive proteins of the desmosome cell-cell junction and are required for cell adhesion and desmosome formation. The desmosomal family members are arranged in two clusters on chromosome 18, occupying less than 650 kb combined.
