|Application ||IHC, FC, ICC, E|
|Description||This gene encodes one of two sphingosine kinase isozymes that catalyze the phosphorylation of sphingosine into sphingosine 1-phosphate. Sphingosine 1-phosphate mediates many cellular processes including migration, proliferation and apoptosis, and also plays a role in several types of cancer by promoting angiogenesis and tumorigenesis. The encoded protein may play a role in breast cancer proliferation and chemoresistance. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene.|
|Immunogen||Synthesized peptide of human SK2 (AA: 36-52).|
|Formulation||Purified antibody in PBS with 0.05% sodium azide|
|Other Names||Sphingosine kinase 2, SK 2, SPK 2, 220.127.116.11, SPHK2|

|Function||Catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra- and extracellular functions. Also acts on D-erythro- dihydrosphingosine, D-erythro-sphingosine and L-threo- dihydrosphingosine. Binds phosphoinositides.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cytoplasm. Membrane.|
