Claudin-5 Rmab - Rabbit polyclonalBSB 2398-BSB 2404
Claudin-5 is a member of the claudin family. Claudins are integral membrane proteins and components of tight junction strands. Tight junction (TJ) strands serve as a physical barrier to prevent solutes and water from passing freely through the paracellular space between epithelial or endothelial cell sheets. Claudin-5 is an endothelial cell-specific component of TJ strands. Mutations in Claudin-5 have been found in patients with velocardiofacial syndrome. Claudin-5 labels endothelial cells and has been used as a marker for endothelial lesions. Claudin-5 is also found in bronchial and lung epithelial cells. In tumors, Claudin-5 expression has been found in lung adenocarcinoma and squamous carcinoma. In serous ovarian adenocarcinoma, increased Claudin-5 expression is associated with aggressive behavior.
Available options include prediluted (3ml, 7 ml, 15ml), concentrate (0.1 ml, 0.5ml, 1ml) and 5+ control slides.
