Description Purified E-cadherin extracellular domain (100 kDa trypsin fragment ectodomain) from Xenopus A6 kidney cell line. 8C2 only binds the -(Ca++) conformation of E-cadherin. Blocks epithelial cell-cell adhesion and cell junction formation. Stains ectoderm, all epithelia and regions of cell-cell contact. E-cadherin-specific by immunoblotting and immunoprecipitation.
Reported Usage
