Extended validation for CD144 (VE-Cadherin) Antibody, anti-human, REAfinity™


Epitope competition
In order to compare the epitope specificity of an antibody, the clone being used is compared with other known clones recognizing the same antigen in a competition assay.
Other clonesOverlap in epitope recognition with REA199
Cells were incubated with an excess of purified unconjugated CD144 (VE-Cadherin) (REA199) antibody followed by staining with fluorochrome-conjugated antibodies of other known clones against the same marker. Based on the fluorescence signal obtained, the clones were identified as recognizing completely overlapping (++), partially overlapping (+), or completely different epitopes (-) of the marker.

Specifications for CD144 (VE-Cadherin) Antibody, anti-human, REAfinity™


Clone REA199 recognizes CD144 (VE-Cadherin), a 120 KDa type II cadherin. Cadherins are cell adhesion molecules and mediate Ca
dependent homophilic interactions. CD144 contains five extracellular cadherin (EC) domains and like other cadherins can interact directly via its C-terminus with cytoplasmic proteins such as β-catenin, plaktoglobin, and p120. Plaktoglobin und β-catenin bind to α-catenin, which in turn interacts with several actin-binding proteins, α-actinin, ajuba, zonula occludens-1 (ZO-1). Further indirect interactions of CD144 with partners such as SHP-2, VEGFR-2, Csk, and PAR-3, 6 allows CD144 to not only regulate the stability and strength of cell adhesion but also to serve functions such as sensing of shear forces, anti-proliferative, and anti-apoptotic effects.
Additional information: Clone REA199 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
