Specificity & Comments

It recognizes a protein of 80-87kDa, identified as gamma-catenin. The catenins (α, β, γ and δ) are ubiquitously expressed, cytoplasmic proteins that associate with E-cadherin at cellular junctions. Catenin/cadherin complexes play an important role in mediating cellular adhesion. α T-catenin, also referred to as VR22, is a 895-amino acid protein that is most abundantly expressed in cardio-myocytes and in the peritubular myoid cells of the testis. α T-catenin binds to α E-catenin as well as to β-catenin, and it functions to inhibit Wnt signaling. CTNNA3, the gene that encodes for α-T-catenin, is located on chromosome 10, and mutations in this gene show a strong correlation to late-onset Alzheimer s disease (LOAD) as well as to dilated cardiomyopathy.

Known Applications & Suggested Dilutions

Flow Cytometry (0.5-1ug/million cells)
Immunofluorescence (1-2ug/ml)
Western Blotting (0.5-1.0ug/ml)
Immunohistology (Formalin-fixed) (0.1-0.2ug/ml for 30 min at RT)
(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes)
Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.

Positive Control

A431, T47D or MCF-7 cells. Skin

Supplied As

200ug/ml of Ab purified from Bioreactor Concentrate by Protein A/G. Prepared in 10mM PBS with 0.05% BSA & 0.05% azide. Also available WITHOUT BSA & azide at 1.0mg/ml.
