This Antibody was verified by Knockdown to ensure that the antibody binds to the antigen stated. View Details
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is skin, breast carcinoma or ovarian carcinoma.
Claudin-1 is a member of the transmembrane protein family claudins located in cell-cell tight junctions and it acts as a co-receptor for HCV entry into hepatic cells. Claudins are abundant in luminal epithelial sheets where they maintain epithelial cell polarity. Claudin-1 is expressed in most tissues such as bladder, fallopian tube, liver, pancreas, prostate, and skin.
