K Cadherin Protein, Human, Recombinant (His Tag) Product Information
> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Testing in progress
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of human CDH6 (AAH00019.1) precursor (Met 1-Ala 615) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Predicted N Terminal
Thr 19 & Ser 54
The pro form of recombinant human CDH6 consists of 609 amino acids and predictes a molecular mass of 68 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, it migrates with the apparent molecular mass of 90-100 kDa due to glycosylation.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us
for any concerns or special requirements.Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

K Cadherin Background Information
Cadherins are a family of calcium-dependent, cell-cell adhesion molecules that play an important morphoregulatory role in a wide variety of tissues. Alterations in cadherin function have been implicated in tumor progression in a number of adenocarcinomas. Cadherin-6 (CDH6), also known as K-cadherin (KCAD), is a type-II classic cadherin cell-cell adhesion molecules, which are expressed in graded or areal patterns, as well as layer-specific patterns, in the cortical plate. Human Cadherin-6 is synthesized as a 79 aa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that contains a 18 aa signal peptide, a 35 aa propeptide, a 562 aa extracellular region, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 154 aa cytoplasmic domain. There are five cadherin domains of approximately 11 aa each in the extracellular region. Cadherin-6 is highly expressed in brain, cerebellum, and kidney, and may contribute to the formation of the segmental structure of the early brain, as well as the development of renal proximal tubules. Weak expression is also detected lung, pancreas, and gastric mucosa. Additionally, it is specifically expressed in the proximal tubule of normal kidneys and in renal cell cancer. Thus , Cadherin-6 is a new prognostic factor for renal cancer.
