Description

γ-catenin, also referred to as JUP and plakoglobin, is a member of the Armadillo family of proteins that are required for Wnt signaling. γ-catenin was originally described as a structural component of desmosomes and adherens junctions, where it links E-cadherins to the actin cytoskeleton. The presence of this complex is critical for cell migration and adhesion. While γ-catenin shows high overall similarity to the homolologous β-catenin, notably in the armadillo domain rich central region, γ-catenin has distinct N- and C-terminal regions, which allows interaction with protein partners functionally distinct with those of other catenins. Additionally, γ-catenin shows tumor suppressor activity by downregulation of oncogenic Wnt signaling. This negative regulation occurs through multiple mechanisms: a. displacement of β-catenin from junctional complexes thereby promoting its ubiquitin-dependent degradation, b. disrupting formation of the TCF- β-catenin transcriptional activator complex by directly binding β-catenin, c. stimulating the nuclear export of the SOX4 transcription factor. γ-catenin also plays a role in maintaining embryonic stem cells in a pluripotent state.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by intracellular immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is 5 µL per million cells in 100 µL staining volume or 5 µL per 100 µL of whole blood. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

This clone was tested for ICC on MCF7 (positive control) and MOLT-4 (negative control) cells using multiple fixation and permeabilization conditions. A brief summary of these results is listed below:

  • methanol only: plasma membrane associated staining in MCF7 cells, no staining in MOLT-4 cells. Moderate nuclear background staining observed in MCF7 cells.
     
  • 4% PFA plus Triton X-100: plasma membrane associated staining in MCF7 cells, no staining in MOLT-4 cells. Low nuclear background staining observed in MCF7 cells.
     
  • 4% PFA plus methanol: 4% PFA plus Triton X-100: plasma membrane associated staining in MCF7 cells, no staining in MOLT-4 cells. Low nuclear background staining observed in MCF7 cells.
