Human K Cadherin/CDH6 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human K Cadherin/CDH6 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of K Cadherin/CDH6 protein (Cat: 10150-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
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.
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.
Human K Cadherin/CDH6 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

K Cadherin/CDH6 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.
