DSHB Data Sheet

Catalog Fields

Antigen: cadherin, DE- (extracellular domain)
Hybridoma Cells Available: Yes
Antigen Species: Drosophila
Depositor: Uemura, T.
Isotype: RIgG2a, kappa light chain
Antigen Sequence:
Host Species: rat
Depositors Institution: Kyoto Univ. Graduate Sch.of Biostudies
Positive Tested Species Reactivity: Drosophila
Depositors Notes: Suitable for use in immunostaining and immunoprecipitation. In western blot analysis, DCAD1, another rat monoclonal antibody to DE-cadherin, is more sensitive than DCAD2, although DCAD1 is not appropriate for staining. About requests of DCAD1, please contact Tadashi Uemura (tuemura@lif.kyoto-u.ac.jp). Conditions for immunostaining are described in our papers (Developmental Biology; Genes & Development 10, 659- 671); in addition please note the following comments. 1/ Fixatives (3.7% formaldehyde in PB or 4% paraformaldehyde in CMF & GBS containing 1mM CaCl2). Either fixation protocol works to stain embryos and discs. To stain cultured cells, only the 4% paraformaldehyde condition worked in our hands. We do not prefer any fix solutions including EDTA or EGTA, because cadherin is easily degraded under Ca++- free conditions. 2/ We suspect that the epitope may be sensitive to long exposure to alcohol. So, embryos stored in alcohol may not be stained. 3/ Photos should be taken under confocal microscope. 4/ HRP/DAB reaction has never given clear-cut signals for DE-cadherin at cell-cell contact sites.

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.
Usage Recommendations
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).
