Whole cell extracts of OVCAR 5 cells with (2) or without (1) pervanadate treament (approximately 20,000 cells per lane) were resolved by SDS-PAGE and transferred to PVDF. The membrane was blocked with a casein/Tween 20 buffer, then incubated with mouse anti- beta/gamma-Catenin [pY654/pY643] antibody (Catalog no. 44212M) at 0.5 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature. After washing, the membrane was incubated with an anti-mouse HRP-conjugated secondary antibody and signals were detected using an ECL detection method (exposure time: 30 seconds).

The protein encoded by this gene is part of a complex of proteins that constitute adherens junctions (AJs). AJs are necessary for the creation and maintenance of epithelial cell layers by regulating cell growth and adhesion between cells. The encoded protein also anchors the actin cytoskeleton and may be responsible for transmitting the contact inhibition signal that causes cells to stop dividing once the epithelial sheet is complete. Finally, this protein binds to the product of the APC gene, which is mutated in adenomatous polyposis of the colon. Mutations in this gene are a cause of colorectal cancer (CRC), pilomatrixoma (PTR), medulloblastoma (MDB), and ovarian cancer. Three transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.
