|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||64753 Da|
|Positive Control||Western Blot: Rat kidney lysate|
|Application & Usage||Western blot: 1:200|
|Other Names||ER degradation-enhancing alpha-mannosidase-like protein 2|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||EDEM2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Initiates the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) that targets misfolded glycoproteins for degradation in an N-glycan-dependent manner. Catalyzes the first mannose trimming step, from Man9GlcNAc2 to Man8GlcNAc2 (PubMed:25092655). Extracts misfolded glycoproteins, but not glycoproteins undergoing productive folding, from the calnexin cycle.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum lumen|
|Tissue Location||Expressed ubiquitously in all tissues tested with slightly higher levels detected in small intestine and peripheral blood leukocytes and weakest levels in brain and skeletal muscle.|

Proteins expressed in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) are tightly regulated by a variety of quality control mechanisms. Terminally misfolded proteins in the ER are retrotranslocated to the cytoplasm and degraded by proteasomes through a mechanism known as ER-associated degradation (ERAD). EDEM2 (ER degradation-enhancing alpha-mannosidase-like 2) is a 578 amino acid secreted protein that, in conjunction with other EDEM proteins (namely EDEM and EDEM3), is involved in the ERAD pathway of protein degradation. EDEM2, a member of the glycosyl hydrolase 47 family, contains a mannosidase homology domain, an N-terminal cleavable signal sequence and a C-terminal extension that is required for both ER retention and the proper function of EDEM2. Human EDEM2 shares 93% sequence identity with its mouse homolog, suggesting a conserved role between species. Two isoforms of EDEM2 exist due to alternative splicing events.
