Concentration: 0.2 mg/ml
Storage & Handling: The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze.
Application:

FC - Quality tested

Application Notes:

Clone BV13 recognizes an epitope between aa 45 and 56, and has a binding affinity of 5-15 nM.5 Additional reported applications (for relevant formats) include: Western blotting1, blocking of cell interactions in vivo1, and immunofluorescence microscopy4.

Recommended Usage:

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.06 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume.  It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Description:

CD144, also known as vascular endothelial-cadherin (VE-cadherin), is a 120 kD member of the type II Cadherin family.  It is an endothelial specific hemophilic adhesion molecule involved in endothelial cell survival, migration, contact-dependent growth inhibition, and homophilic adhesion.  VE-cadherin is essential for maintaining the integrity of the endothelial barrier in vivo.

Other Names: Vascular endothelial-cadherin
Structure: A 120 kD member of type II Cadherin family
