|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_659002.1, NP_997187.1|
|Calculated MW||40518 Da|
|Antigen Region||261-290 aa|
|Other Names||Muscleblind-like protein 2, Muscleblind-like protein 1, Muscleblind-like protein-like, Muscleblind-like protein-like 39, MBNL2, MBLL, MBLL39, MLP1|
|Target/Specificity||This MBNL2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 261-290 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human MBNL2.|
|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||MBNL2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||MBLL, MBLL39, MLP1|
|Function||Mediates pre-mRNA alternative splicing regulation. Acts either as activator or repressor of splicing on specific pre-mRNA targets. Inhibits cardiac troponin-T (TNNT2) pre-mRNA exon inclusion but induces insulin receptor (IR) pre-mRNA exon inclusion in muscle. Antagonizes the alternative splicing activity pattern of CELF proteins. RNA-binding protein that binds to 5'ACACCC-3' core sequence, termed zipcode, within the 3'UTR of ITGA3. Binds to CUG triplet repeat expansion in myotonic dystrophy muscle cells by sequestering the target RNAs. Seems to regulate expression and localization of ITGA3 by transporting it from the nucleus to cytoplasm at adhesion plaques. May play a role in myotonic dystrophy pathophysiology (DM).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Greater concentration in the nucleus. Expressed in or near large cytoplasmic adhesion plaques (PubMed:16273094). Location in the cytoplasm is microtubule-dependent (PubMed:16273094). In both DM1 and DM2 patients, colocalizes with nuclear foci of retained expanded-repeat transcripts (PubMed:11929853)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas|

This gene encodes a C3H-type zinc finger protein, which is similar to the Drosophila melanogaster muscleblind B protein. Drosophila muscleblind is a gene required for photoreceptor differentiation. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described but the full-length natures of only some have been determined.
