This antibody reacts with the C-terminal portion of beta-Catenin.
For staining of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissues, it is recommended to boil tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Recommended positive controls are MCF-7 cells and breast carcinoma tissue.
The catenins (alpha, beta and gamma) are ubiquitously expressed, cytoplasmic proteins associated with E-cadherin at cellular junctions. beta-catenin also binds to N-cadherin and co-immunoprecipitates with APC. Cadherin/catenin complexes are linked to the cytoskeleton via a direct association between alpha-actinin and alpha-catenin. Increases tyrosine phosphorylation can disrupt catenin-cadherin complexes, influencing cellular adhesion.
