|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||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.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Cell junction, desmosome|
|Tissue Location||Epidermis, buccal mucosa, esophagus and cervix|

The protein encoded by this gene is a calcium-dependentglycoprotein that is a member of the desmocollin subfamily of thecadherin superfamily. These desmosomal family members, along withthe desmogleins, are found primarily in epithelial cells where theyconstitute the adhesive proteins of the desmosome cell-celljunction and are required for cell adhesion and desmosomeformation. The desmosomal family members are arranged in twoclusters on chromosome 18, occupying less than 650 kb combined.Alternative splicing results in two transcript variants encodingdistinct isoforms.
