|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 57 kDa |
Observed: 57 kDa
|Application Notes||OCLN antibody can be used for detection of OCLN by Western blot at 1 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||OCLN antibody was raised against a 15 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human OCLN.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of OCLN.
|Reconstitution & Storage||OCLN antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|

OCLN Antibody: Tight junctions act as a semi-permeable barrier to the transport of ions, solutes, and water and are considered to function as a fence that divides apical and basolateral domains of plasma membranes. Tight junctions coordinate a variety of signaling and trafficking molecules regulating cell differentiation, proliferation, and polarity and contain a number of junctional proteins including Occludin, Claudins, junctional adhesion molecules (JAMs), as well as multiple scaffold proteins. Occludin, the first identified component of tight junction strands, is thought function as a signal transmitter in multiple signaling pathways and can associate with multiple kinases and phosphatases such as PI3-kinase and protein phosphatases 1 and 2A. At least two isoforms of OCLN are known to exist.
