O95832 CLD1_HUMAN:

Strongly expressed in liver and kidney. Expressed in heart, brain, spleen, lung and testis.

claudin 1 Plays a major role in tight junction-specific obliteration of the intercellular space, through calcium- independent cell-adhesion activity. Acts as a co- receptor for HCV entry into hepatic cells. Belongs to the claudin family. Can form homo- and heteropolymers with other CLDN. Homopolymers interact with CLDN3, but not CLDN2, homopolymers. Directly interacts with TJP1/ZO-1, TJP2/ZO-2 and TJP3/ZO-3. Interacts with MPDZ and INADL. May interact with HCV E1 and E2 proteins.



Score>80(red) has high confidence and is suggested to be used for WB detection. *The prediction model is mainly based on the alignment of immunogen sequences, the results are for reference only, not as the basis of quality assurance.

Research Backgrounds


Claudins function as major constituents of the tight junction complexes that regulate the permeability of epithelia. While some claudin family members play essential roles in the formation of impermeable barriers, others mediate the permeability to ions and small molecules. Often, several claudin family members are coexpressed and interact with each other, and this determines the overall permeability. CLDN1 is required to prevent the paracellular diffusion of small molecules through tight junctions in the epidermis and is required for the normal barrier function of the skin. Required for normal water homeostasis and to prevent excessive water loss through the skin, probably via an indirect effect on the expression levels of other proteins, since CLDN1 itself seems to be dispensable for water barrier formation in keratinocyte tight junctions.

(Microbial infection) Acts as a receptor for hepatitis C virus (HCV) in hepatocytes. Associates with CD81 and the CLDN1-CD81 receptor complex is essential for HCV entry into host cell. Acts as a receptor for dengue virus.

Subcellular Location:

Cell junction>Tight junction. Cell membrane>Multi-pass membrane protein. Basolateral cell membrane.
