|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||109691 Da|
|Antigen Region||874-903 aa|
|Other Names||Polycystin-2, Autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease type II protein, Polycystic kidney disease 2 protein, Polycystwin, R48321, PKD2|
|Target/Specificity||This PKD2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 874-903 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human PKD2.|
|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||PKD2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Functions as a calcium permeable cation channel involved in fluid-flow mechanosensation by the primary cilium in renal epithelium. Together with TRPV4, forms mechano- and thermosensitive channels in cilium (PubMed:18695040). PKD1 and PKD2 may function through a common signaling pathway that is necessary for normal tubulogenesis. Acts as a regulator of cilium length, together with PKD1. The dynamic control of cilium length is essential in the regulation of mechanotransductive signaling. The cilium length response creates a negative feedback loop whereby fluid shear-mediated deflection of the primary cilium, which decreases intracellular cAMP, leads to cilium shortening and thus decreases flow-induced signaling. Also involved in left/right axis specification downstream of nodal flow: forms a complex with PKD1L1 in cilia to facilitate flow detection in left/right patterning (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell projection, cilium membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum. Cell membrane. Note=Cell surface and cilium localization requires GANAB.|
|Tissue Location||Strongly expressed in ovary, fetal and adult kidney, testis, and small intestine. Not detected in peripheral leukocytes.|

This gene encodes a member of the polycystin protein family. The encoded protein contains multiple transmembrane domains, and cytoplasmic N- and C-termini. The protein may be an integral membrane protein involved in cell-cell/matrix interactions. The encoded protein may function in renal tubular development, morphology, and function, and may modulate intracellular calcium homoeostasis and other signal transduction pathways. This protein interacts with polycystin 1 to produce cation-permeable currents. Mutations in this gene have been associated with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease.
