Depositors Notes: 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.
Immunogen: Purified E-cadherin extracellular domain (100 kDa trypsin fragment ectodomain) from Xenopus A6 kidney cell line.
Additional Information: 5D3 binds both the - and + (Ca++) conformations of E-cadherin
Recommended Applications: FFPE, Function Blocking, Immunofluorescence, Immunoprecipitation, Western Blot

Storage and Handling Recommendations
Although many cell products are maintained at 4°C for years without loss of activity, shelf-life at 4°C is highly variable.
To ensure retention of antibody activity, we recommend aliquotting the product into two parts:
1) a volume of antibody stored at 4°C to be used within two weeks.
2) the remaining product diluted with an equal volume of molecular grade glycerol and stored at -20°C.
While optimal Ig concentration for an application will vary, a good starting concentration for immunohistochemistry (IHC),
immunofluorescence(IF) and staining is 2-5 µg/ml.
For Western blots, the concentration is decreased by one order of magnitude (that is, 0.2-0.5 µg/ml).
All cell products contain the antimicrobial ProClin. See our FAQ section for additional information.
