Cadherin-2 isoform 1, also known as CDH2 is a transmembrane, homophilic glycoprotein which belongs to the calcium-dependent cell adhesion molecule family. CDH2 takes part in neurons and later on was discovered to participate in cardiac muscle and in cancer metastasis as well. The CDH2 loss promotes tumorigenesis through releasing membrane-bound β-catenin, and so stimulating Wnt signaling. Furthermore, CDH2 appears to be implicated in tumor development, however this discovery is limited in adrenocortical tumors-ACTs.
CDH2 Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 574 amino acids (160-724a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 62.9kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa).
CDH2 is expressed with a 6 amino acids His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
CDH2 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 20% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
