|Other Names||Claudin-8, CLDN8|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9222c was selected from the Center region of human CLDN8. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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 major role in tight junction-specific obliteration of the intercellular space.|
|Cellular Location||Cell junction, tight junction. Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Localizes to tight junctions in all 3 segments of the epididymis, in the caput found in the lateral margins of principal cells, and in the corpus at the interface between basal and principal cells|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in the epididymis, mainly in the caput segment.|
