Cadherins are transmembrane glycoproteins vital in calcium-dependent cell-cell adhesion during tissue differentiation. Cadherins cluster to form foci of homophilic binding units. A key determinant to the strength of the cadherin-mediated adhesion may be by the juxtamembrane region in cadherins. This region induces clustering and also binds to the protein p120 catenin. The cytoplasmic region is highly conserved in sequence and has been shown experimentally to regulate the cell-cell binding function of the extracellular domain of E-cadherin, possibly through interaction with the cytoskeleton. Many cadherins are regulated by phosphorylation, including N-cadherin and E-cadherin. P-Cadherin (Cadherin-3) is localized in placenta while E-Cadherin (Cadherin-1) and N-Cadherin (Cadherin-2) are found in epithelial and neural tissues, respectively. P-Cadherin is expressed in normal epithelial cells and some cancer cells, and its sequence contains 5 cadherin domains in the extracellular region.

Western blot image of human A431 cells (lanes 1-4). The blots were probed with mouse monoclonals anti-P-Cadherin at 1:250 (lane 1) and 1:500 (lane 2), 1:1000 (lane 3) and 1:2000 (lane 4).

Clone (M596) was generated from a recombinant protein containing amino acids in the N-terminal region of human P-Cadherin. This sequence is highly conserved in mouse and rat P-cadherin.
