12F7_PURE_B_Catenin_1_Antibody_081018
Western blot of purified anti-β Catenin 1 (CTNNB1) antibody (clone 12F7). Lane 1: Molecular weight marker; Lane 2: 20 µg of human brain lysate; Lane 3: 20 µg of mouse brain lysate; Lane 4: 20 µg of rat brain lysate. The blot was incubated with 1 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with HRP labeled goat anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405306). Enhanced chemiluminescence was used as the detection system.

    Paraffin-embedded mouse testicle sections stained with anti-β Catenin 1 antibody. Heat-induced antigen retrieval was performed using pH 6.0 sodium citrate in a pressure cooker. Blocking was performed using Mouse-on-Mouse blocking reagents. The section was stained with 10 µg/mL of anti-β Catenin 1 (clone 12F7) for 30 minutes and color developed using DAB. Nuclei were counterstained with Nuclear Fast Red for two minutes. This image was captured under a 40X objective. Credit: Hans Snyder, Histologics.

Description

β-catenin is part of a complex of proteins that constitute adherens junctions (AJs). AJs are necessary for the creation and maintenance of epithelial cell layers by regulating cell growth and adhesion between cells. The encoded protein also anchors the actin cytoskeleton and may be responsible for transmitting the contact inhibition signal that causes cells to stop dividing once the epithelial sheet is complete. β-catenin also plays a key role in Wnt signaling pathways and thus is involved in neural differentiation, synaptic plasticity, neurodegenerative disease, and prevention of apoptosis. Finally, this protein binds to the product of the adenomatous polyposis coli (APC) gene, which is mutated in the adenomatous polyposis of the colon. Mutations in this gene are a cause of colorectal cancer (CRC), pilomatrixoma (PTR), medulloblastoma (MDB), and ovarian cancer.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 1.0 - 10 µg per ml. For immunohistochemistry in formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections, a concentration of 10 µg per ml is suggested. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Additional reported applications (for the relevant formats) include: immunfluorescence microscopy4 and immunohistochemical staining3.

For in vivo studies or highly sensitive assays, we recommend Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody (Cat. No. 844603) with a lower endotoxin limit than standard LEAF™ purified antibodies (Endotoxin <0.01 EU/µg).

Antigen Details

Structure
88 kD armadillo repeat containing protein with an unstructured N and C terminal.
Distribution

β-catenin localizes to cell-cell contacts (adherens junctions) and the cell membrane as well as the cytoplasmic pool of protein. β-catenin can also translocate to the nucleus and is in interphase found in puncta at the proximal end of centrioles. In mitosis, it localizes to the centrosomes at the spindle.

Function
Wnt signaling pathway, regulation of cell-cell adhesion, neurogenesis, transcription, transcription regulation, early embryonic patterning, asymmetric cell division, stem cell renewal, and the epithelial to mesenchymal transition.
Interaction
Wnt signaling pathway, apoptotic cleavage of cellular proteins, and EphB-EphrinB signaling.
