Protocadherin 12 protein (PCDH12, VE-cadherin 2) is a cell adhesion molecule that has been isolated from endothelial cells. Here, we have used Northern and Western blots, immunohistology, and flow cytometry to examine the distribution of PCDH12 in mouse tissues. It is an N-glycosylated protein of 150-kDa mass. In the endothelium, PCDH12 immunoreactivity was… CONTINUE READING
