A synthetic peptide from the c-terminal region of human Septin 2 conjugated to blue carrier protein was used as the antigen. The peptide is homologous in rat and mouse.
SEPT2, Neural precursor cell expressed developmentally down-regulated protein 5, NEDD-5, DIFF6
FUNCTION: Filament-forming cytoskeletal GTPase. Required for normal organization of the actin cytoskeleton. Plays a role in the biogenesis of polarized columnar-shaped epithelium by maintaining polyglutamylated microtubules, thus facilitating efficient vesicle transport, and by impeding MAP4 binding to tubulin. Required for the progression through mitosis. Forms a scaffold at the midplane of the mitotic splindle required to maintain CENPE localization at kinetochores and consequently chromosome congression. During anaphase, may be required for chromosome segregation and spindle elongation. May play a role in the internalization of 2 intracellular microbial pathogens, Listeria monocytogenes and Shigella flexneri.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm âº cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm âº cytoskeleton âº spindle. Note: In metaphase cells, localized within the microtubule spindle. At the metaphase plate, in close apposition to the kinetochores of the congressed chromosomes. In cells undergoing cytokinesis, localized to the midbody, the ingressing cleavage furrow, and the central spindle. During bacterial infection, displays a collar shape structure next to actin at the pole of invading bacteria. In epithelial cells, colocalizes with polyglutamylated tubulin around the trans-Golgi network, as well as juxatnuclear and proximal Golgi apparatus.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Widely expressed. Up-regulated in liver cancer.
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20°C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8°C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
