Rat anti Pig CD144 antibody, clone 123 recognizes a ~120-130 kDa a single pass type I membrane protein considered to be the porcine homologue of human CD144, also known as VE-Cadherin or Cadherin-5.

VE-cadherin is expressed by endothelial cells and is important in cell-cell adhesion, tight junction integrity and vascular permeabiltiy (Tinsley et al. 1999). VE-Cadherin is highly susceptible to proteolytic degradation.

Western blotting and immunofluorescence studies with Rat anti Porcine CD144 antibody, clone 123 demonstrate rearrangement and upregulation of VE-cadherin in porcine endothelial cells cultured as part of tissue engineered blood vessels under shear stress conditions rather than static conditions (Lee et al. 2012).

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
