|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||28432 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal conditions should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 30-35 kDa Dkk2 in samples from human, mouse and rat origins. A ~25 kDa band can also be detected, presumably to be the cleavage fragment of Dkk2.|
|Other Names||DKK-2, DKK 2, dkk2, dkk-2, dkk 2, dickkopf homolog-2, dickkopf homolog2, dickkopf homolog 2|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit Dkk2 polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||DKK2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Antagonizes canonical Wnt signaling by inhibiting LRP5/6 interaction with Wnt and by forming a ternary complex with the transmembrane protein KREMEN that promotes internalization of LRP5/6. DKKs play an important role in vertebrate development, where they locally inhibit Wnt regulated processes such as antero- posterior axial patterning, limb development, somitogenesis and eye formation. In the adult, Dkks are implicated in bone formation and bone disease, cancer and Alzheimer disease.|

Xenopus Dickkopf (Dkk)-1 was initially discovered as a Wnt antagonist that plays an important role in head formation. By far, four members of Dkk have been identified in mammals. Each Dkk molecule contains two conserved cysteine-rich domains. Recent studies showed that the second Cys-rich domains of Dkk1 and Dkk2 inhibited Wnt-3a-activated signaling, whereas the first Cys-rich domains had no effects. In addition, the second Cys-rich domain of Dkk-2, but not that of Dkk-1, was able to activate the canonical pathway in the presence of LRP6, and this LRP-dependent signaling does not require Dvl.
