Mouse anti Human plakophilin 1 recognizes a member of the plakophilin family which have been identified as junctional proteins that are essential for the formation and stabilization of desmosomal cell contacts. Plakophilin 1 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the PKP1 gene, with a molecular weight of 75 kDa. This gene encodes a member of the arm-repeat (armadillo) and plakophilin gene families.

Plakophilin proteins contain numerous armadillo repeats, localize to cell desmosomes and nuclei, and participate in linking cadherins to intermediate filaments in the cytoskeleton. This protein may be involved in molecular recruitment and stabilization during desmosome formation and in the formation of desmosomal plaques where it is associated with desmoplakin. It is not found in cell types that have non-epithelial desmosomes and is absent in fibroblasts and other connective tissue types, including sarcomas. Mutations in this gene have been associated with the ectodermal dysplasia/skin fragility syndrome.

Mouse anti Human plakophilin 1 antibodu has been found to be specific for the armadillo repeat domain of plakophilin 1. This antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
