This is a highly specific antibody against CTNND2/delta 2 Catenin.
Cross-reactive species details
Due to limited amount of testing and knowledge, not every possible cross-reactivity is known.
This antibody was obtained by immunization of the host with KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human delta 2 Catenin

For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 633 is a practical alternative to APC as well as Cy5. Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR made this Alexa Fluor 633 conjugate that can be used in multi-color flow cytometry with instruments equipped with a second red laser or red diode. It is detected in the FL4 detector of the core's upgraded 2-laser FACScans. Like other Alexa Fluor dyes, the Anti-CTNND2/delta 2 Catenin exhibits uncommon photo stability, making it an ideal choice for fluorescent microscopy.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Background of the antigen
The Alpha-, Beta-, Gamma-, and Delta -catenins are proteins that bind to the highly conserved, intracellular cytoplasmic tail of E-cadherin. Together, the catenin/cadherin complexes play an important role mediating cellular adhesion. Alpha-catenin interacts with E-cadherin associated protein and also associates with other members of the cadherin family, such as N-cadherin and P-cadherin. Beta-catenin associates with the cytoplasmic portion of E-cadherin, which is necessary for the function of E-cadherin as an adhesion molecule. Beta-catenin also complexes with the tumor suppressor protein APC. Gamma-catenin, also known as plakoglobin, is a protein that binds ?catenin and N-cadherin. Gamma-catenin interacts with presenilin 1 and is expressed in the brain. The gene encoding Gamma-catenin maps to human chromosome 5p15.2. A hemizygous loss of the gene encoding Gamma-catenin leads to the mental retardation associated with Cri-du-Chat syndrome. In addition, the transmembrane phosphatase PTPm associates with catenin/ cadherin complexes and may regulate complex signaling.
