β-Catenin Antibody, pAb, Rabbit

Synonyms Rabbit Anti β-Catenin Polyclonal Antibody;
Description β-catenin is an adherens junction protein. Adherens junctions (AJs; also called the zonula adherens) are critical for the establishment and maintenance of epithelial layers, such as those lining organ surfaces. AJs play a role in mediating the adhesion between cells, signaling the presence of neighboring cells, and anchoring the actin cytoskeleton. In serving these roles, AJs also regulate normal cell growth and behavior. At several stages of embryogenesis, wound healing, and tumor cell metastasis, cells form and leave epithelia. This process, which involves the disruption and reestablishment of epithelial cell-cell contacts, may be regulated by the disassembly and assembly of AJs.
GenScript Rabbit Anti-β-Catenin Polyclonal Antibody is developed in rabbit using a KLH-coupled synthetic peptide within residues 700-750 of human β-Catenin protein (Swiss Prot: P35222).
Host Species Rabbit
Antigen Species Human
Conjugation Unconjugated
Immunogen Synthetic peptide (KLH-coupled) within residues 700-750 of human β-Catenin protein (Swiss Prot: P35222)
