|Application ||WB, IHC-P|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Dilution||IHC-P (5 µg/ml)|
|Other Names||Protein lifeguard 2, Fas apoptotic inhibitory molecule 2, Neural membrane protein 35, Transmembrane BAX inhibitor motif-containing protein 2, FAIM2, KIAA0950, LFG, LFG2, NMP35, TMBIM2|
|Target/Specificity||16 amino acid peptide from near the amino terminus of human LFG.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles. Store undiluted.|
|Precautions||FAIM2 / LIFEGUARD Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||KIAA0950, LFG, LFG2, NMP35, TMBIM2|
|Function||Antiapoptotic protein which protects cells uniquely from Fas-induced apoptosis. Regulates Fas-mediated apoptosis in neurons by interfering with caspase-8 activation. May play a role in cerebellar development by affecting cerebellar size, internal granular layer (IGL) thickness, and Purkinje cell (PC) development.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Membrane raft. Cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in breast carcinoma tissues. Enhanced expression correlates with the grade of the tumor (grade II/grade III) in primary breast tumors (at protein level). Widely expressed. Expressed at high levels in the brain especially in the hippocampus.|
