Anti-Mouse Claudin-15 (C) Rabbit IgG Antibody

Claudins are a family of proteins that control the flow of molecules in the intercellular space between epithelial cells. They are the most important components of tight junctions--a form of cell-to-cell adhesion that forms continuous seals around cells. Tight junctions act as a physical barrier to prevent solutes and water from passing freely through the paracellular space. Claudins have four transmembrane domains, with the N-terminus and the C-terminus in the cytoplasm. Over 24 members of the claudin family have been identified in humans. In mouse, claudin-1, -2, -6, -7, and -15 are expressed at high levels in liver and kidney, while claudin-5 is expressed in vascular endothelial cells. Claudin 15 deficiency is associated with decreased intestinal epithelial paracellular ion permeability. The CLDN15 gene is a direct target for hepatocyte-nuclear-factor-4alpha (HNF4-alpha), and CLDN15 expression is downregulated in inflammatory bowel disease. Claudin-15 is also known as BB107105 and 2210009B08Rik.

This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes mouse claudin-15 protein. The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide, and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection, immunohistochemical (IHC) detection, and immunocytochemical (ICC) detection of mouse claudin-15 protein.
