COL8A2 Antibody (C-term) - Additional Information

Gene ID 1296
Other Names
Collagen alpha-2(VIII) chain, Endothelial collagen, COL8A2
This COL8A2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 571-599 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human COL8A2.
Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.
Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
COL8A2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

COL8A2 Antibody (C-term) - Protein Information

Name COL8A2
Macromolecular component of the subendothelium. Major component of the Descemet's membrane (basement membrane) of corneal endothelial cells. Also component of the endothelia of blood vessels. Necessary for migration and proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and thus, has a potential role in the maintenance of vessel wall integrity and structure, in particular in atherogenesis (By similarity).
Cellular Location
Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix, basement membrane
Tissue Location
Expressed primarily in the subendothelium of large blood vessels. Also expressed in arterioles and venules in muscle, heart, kidney, spleen, umbilical cord, liver and lung and is also found in connective tissue layers around hair follicles, around nerve bundles in muscle, in the dura of the optic nerve, in cornea and sclera, and in the perichondrium of cartilaginous tissues. In the kidney, expressed in mesangial cells, glomerular endothelial cells, and tubular epithelial cells. Also expressed in mast cells, and in astrocytes during the repair process. Expressed in Descemet's membrane.

This gene encodes the alpha 2 chain of type VIII collagen. The protein is a major component of the basement membrane of the corneal endothelium and forms homo- or heterotrimers with alpha 1 (VIII) type collagens. Defects in this gene are associated with Fuchs endothelial corneal dystrophy and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy type 2.
