|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||Q4R8E8, NP_872426.1|
|Calculated MW||14188 Da|
|Antigen Region||9-37 aa|
|Other Names||Spindle and kinetochore-associated protein 2, Protein FAM33A, SKA2, FAM33A|
|Target/Specificity||This SKA2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 9-37 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human SKA2.|
|Format||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.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||SKA2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the SKA1 complex, a microtubule-binding subcomplex of the outer kinetochore that is essential for proper chromosome segregation (PubMed:17093495, PubMed:19289083, PubMed:23085020). Required for timely anaphase onset during mitosis, when chromosomes undergo bipolar attachment on spindle microtubules leading to silencing of the spindle checkpoint (PubMed:17093495). The SKA1 complex is a direct component of the kinetochore-microtubule interface and directly associates with microtubules as oligomeric assemblies (PubMed:19289083). The complex facilitates the processive movement of microspheres along a microtubule in a depolymerization-coupled manner (PubMed:17093495, PubMed:19289083). In the complex, it is required for SKA1 localization (PubMed:19289083). Affinity for microtubules is synergistically enhanced in the presence of the ndc-80 complex and may allow the ndc-80 complex to track depolymerizing microtubules (PubMed:23085020).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, spindle Chromosome, centromere, kinetochore. Note=Localizes to the outer kinetochore and spindle microtubules during mitosis in a NDC80 complex-dependent manner. Localizes to both the mitotic spindle and kinetochore-associated proteins.|
