|Other Names||Nectin-3, CDw113, Poliovirus receptor-related protein 3, CD113, PVRL3, PRR3|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in cell-cell adhesion through heterophilic trans-interactions with nectin-like proteins or nectins, such as trans-interaction with NECTIN2 at Sertoli-spermatid junctions. Trans-interaction with PVR induces activation of CDC42 and RAC small G proteins through common signaling molecules such as SRC and RAP1. Also involved in the formation of cell-cell junctions, including adherens junctions and synapses. Induces endocytosis- mediated down-regulation of PVR from the cell surface, resulting in reduction of cell movement and proliferation. Plays a role in the morphology of the ciliary body.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane|
|Tissue Location||Predominantly expressed in testis and placenta as well as in many cell lines, including epithelial cell lines|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Nectins (e.g., PVRL1; MIM 600644) are immunoglobulin-likeadhesion molecules that interact with afadin (AF6; MIM 159559).Afadin is an actin filament-binding protein that connects nectinsto the actin cytoskeleton. The nectin-afadin system organizesadherens junctions cooperatively with the cadherin (see MIM192090)-catenin (see MIM 116805) system in epithelialcells.
