Mouse anti catenin alpha 1 antibody clone alpha-CAT-7A4 recognizes catenin alpha 1 also known as alpha E-catenin, cadherin-associated protein or renal carcinoma antigen NY-REN-13.

Catenin alpha 1 is a member of the catenin protein family, which also includes the catenin beta, catenin gamma and catenin delta proteins. Catenin alpha 1 is an important actin binding protein and has also been shown to function as a tumor suppressor (Piao et al. 2014, Silvis et al. 2014).
