Name: Claudin-1 Antibody (Polyclonal)
Description and applications: Claudin proteins are a family of proteins associated with tight junctions. Tight junctions are specialized regions of cell to cell contact; made up of network of strands to act as a molecular gasket for preventing the leakage of ions, water etc. between cells. They are abundant in luminal epithelial sheets where they maintain epithelial cell polarity. Different tissues exhibit different Claudin composition.
Composition: anti-human Claudin-1 rabbit polyclonal antibody purified from serum and prepared in 10mM PBS, pH 7.4, with 0.2% BSA and 0.09% sodium azide
Immunogen: Synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminus of human Claudin 1.
