Application DetailsImmunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 2.0 µg/mL is recommended for WB. Human Cadherin-2 (precursor) has a predicted length of 906 residues and MW of 100 kDa. A concentration of 4.0 µg/mL is recommended for IHC to detect the protein in formalin/acetone fixed tissues. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
SpecificityThe specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB and IHC against the antigen. Human; mouse; rat; rabbit; chicken;

Cadherin-2 or Neural Cadherin is a member of the cadherin family of proteins that mediate calcium ion-dependent cell adhesion. Other members include E-cadherin and P-cadherin. Cadherin-2 is expressed in the brain and skeletal and cardiac muscle. Cadherin-2 has been identified as a potential prognostic marker for a number of tumours.
