|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, IP|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Hamster, Guinea Pig|
|Calculated MW||49408 Da|
|Dilution||IHC-P (10 µg/ml),|
|Other Names||WIPI2, ATG18B, Atg21, DKFZP434J154, WIPI-2, WIPI49-like protein 2, CGI-50|
|Target/Specificity||Recognizes WIPI2, a mammalian ortholog of Atg18. WIPI2 is recruited to early autophagosomal structures and is required for their maturation into mature autophagosomes.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PBS, 0.09% sodium azide. +4°C or -20°C, Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Precautions||WIPI2 Antibody (C-Terminus, clone 2A2) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Early component of the autophagy machinery being involved in formation of preautophagosomal structures and their maturation into mature phagosomes in response to phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns3P). May bind PtdIns3P.|
|Cellular Location||Preautophagosomal structure membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side Note=Localizes to omegasomes membranes which are endoplasmic reticulum connected strutures at the origin of preautophagosomal structures. Enriched at preautophagosomal structure membranes in response to PtdIns3P.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed (at protein level). Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas Expression is down-regulated in pancreatic and in kidney tumors|
