|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||79995 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (1:200-1000 dilutions). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The anti-calpain 2 antibody recognizes the 80 kDa Calpain 2. It does not cross-react with other calpains|
|Other Names||M-Calpain , Calpain 2 , Calpian II , CANPL2 , CANP2 , millimolar-calpain , mCANP , FLJ39928 , CANPml , EC 188.8.131.52|
|Formulation||100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal anti-calpain 2 antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA, and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||Calpain-2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-regulated non-lysosomal thiol-protease which catalyzes limited proteolysis of substrates involved in cytoskeletal remodeling and signal transduction. Proteolytically cleaves MYOC at 'Arg-226' (PubMed:17650508). Proteolytically cleaves CPEB3 following neuronal stimulation which abolishes CPEB3 translational repressor activity, leading to translation of CPEB3 target mRNAs (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Note=Translocates to the plasma membrane upon Ca(2+) binding|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Calpains are cytosolic, calcium-dependent, cysteine proteases that are ubiquitously expressed in mammalian and avian tissues. Calpain-1 and 2 consist of a common small subunit and a large variable subunit. Domains in the large subunit include the amino terminal domain I, the proteinase domain II, domain III, and the EF-hand domain IV. Type I calpain requires micromolar amounts of calcium, while type II calpain requires millimolar amounts of calcium.
