Anti-Rat Occludin (1A8) Mouse IgM MoAb

Occludin is an integral membrane protein, encoded by the OCLN gene, that is located at tight junctions. Tight junctions act as a physical barrier to prevent solutes and water from passing freely through the paracellular space. Occludin is also known as BLCPMG. It is known to interact with several cytoplasmic proteins via its C terminus, while its extracellular loops are thought to be involved in the regulation of paracellular permeability and cell adhesion. When occludin is expressed in cells that lack tight junctions, it is able to induce cell adhesion. Mutations in the OCLN gene are associated with an autosomal recessive neurologic disorder known as band-like calcification with simplified gyration and polymicrogyria (BLC-PMG).

This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes rat occludin protein. The antibody was raised in mouse using recombinant occludin and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection or immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of rat, human, and dog occludin protein.
