|Other Accession||NP_067012, 11056046|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 44, 48 kDa |
Observed: 44 kDa
|Application Notes||CADM3 antibody can be used for detection of CADM3 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/ml. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||CADM3; CADM3 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least three isoforms are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the two longest isoforms. CADM3 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other members of the CADM protein family.|

|Precautions||CADM3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||IGSF4B, NECL1, SYNCAM3, TSLL1|
|Function||Involved in the cell-cell adhesion. Has both calcium- independent homophilic cell-cell adhesion activity and calcium- independent heterophilic cell-cell adhesion activity with IGSF4, PVRL1 and PVRL3. Interaction with EPB41L1 may regulate structure or function of cell-cell junctions (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction. Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein Note=Localized at the cell-cell attached sites of the plasma membrane.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 is expressed mainly in adult and fetal brain. Isoform 2 is highly expressed in adult brain and weakly expressed in placenta. In brain, Isoform 2 is highly expressed in cerebellum.|

Cell adhesion molecule 3 (CADM3) is a member of a family of immunoglobulin-like, calcium-independent cell-cell adhesion molecules (1,2). CADM3 localizes to non-junctional contact sites of presynaptic nerve terminals, axons and glia cell processes and is thought to play an important role in the formation of synapses, axon bundles and myelinated axons (3). Recently, CADM3 has been shown to suppress the growth and tumorigenic ability of colon cancer cells, indicating that it can act as a tumor suppressor (4).
