Anti-Plakoglobin (gamma-catenin or JUP) antibody is validated on mouse tissue and recommended for immunofluorescence labeling, IHC, or western blot of materials from rodent and human tissues.

Plakoglobin, also known as gamma-catenin, is encoded by the JUP gene in human. Plakoglobin consists in 12 armadillo repeats with N-terminal and C-terminal globular domains.

Plakoglobin is a major peripheral protein of the desmosome and the adherens junction. It links cadherins to the actin cytoskeleton. Although plakoglobin localizes to desmosomes and adherens junctions, its affinity for desmosomal cadherins is several times greater than for E-cadherin.

Plakoglobin is also localized at the intercalated disc of the cardiomyocyte, where it plays an essential role in stabilizing the cardiac muscle.

 

Host/Isotype: Rabbit/IgG

Class: Polyclonal

Immunogen: Synthetic peptide (16-aa) derived from the C-terminal region of human Plakoglobin protein

Species homology of immunogen: Synthetic peptide sequence is identical to mouse or rat sequence

Conjugation: Unconjugated

Purification: Affinity chromatography

Storage buffer: PBS, pH 7.2, 0.1% sodium azide

Storage condition: –20°C

"I am really impressed with your approach. We tried multiple times previously to create monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to claudin-2 and MLCK1. We have had limited success generating polyclonals and no success generating monoclonals. You have generated outstanding monoclonals to both. I look forward to continuing to work with you."

"The polyclonal antibody you generated for KIAA0408 is stunning! KIAA0408 is a novel cilium molecule that has never been studied. So, clearly there will be a lot of demand for it as we have discovered a very interesting finding and the story will be published in a high impact journal. I am strongly inclined to generate monoclonal antibody for this protein too and we should think about patenting it."

"Your ARL13B antibody works beautifully!!! We’re so happy to have a cilia-specific antibody made in rat! I can send you high resolution images to be posted on your website."

"The assay is a homophilic interaction mediated cell adhesion on purified protein (in this case, immobilized purified Pcdhga9 to Pcdhga9 expressed on cell surface). Compared to control, cell adhesion is reduced in the presence of Pcdhga9 monoclonal antibody supernatants!"
