|Predicted||Bovine, Monkey, Mouse|
|Calculated MW||62334 Da|
|Antigen Region||551-579 aa|
|Other Names||YTH domain-containing family protein 2, CLL-associated antigen KW-14, High-glucose-regulated protein 8, Renal carcinoma antigen NY-REN-2, YTHDF2, HGRG8|
|Target/Specificity||This YTHD2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 551-579 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human YTHD2.|
|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||YTHD2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Specifically recognizes and binds N6-methyladenosine (m6A)-containing RNAs, and regulates mRNA stability (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440, PubMed:26318451). M6A is a modification present at internal sites of mRNAs and some non- coding RNAs and plays a role in the efficiency of mRNA splicing, processing and stability (PubMed:22575960, PubMed:24284625, PubMed:25412658, PubMed:25412661). Acts as a regulator of mRNA stability: binding to m6A-containing mRNAs results in the localization to mRNA decay sites, such as processing bodies (P- bodies), leading to mRNA degradation (PubMed:24284625, PubMed:26046440). Also acts as a promoter of cap-independent mRNA translation following heat shock stress: upon stress, relocalizes to the nucleus and specifically binds mRNAs with some m6A methylation mark at their 5'-UTR, protecting demethylation of mRNAs by FTO, thereby promoting cap-independent mRNA translation (PubMed:26458103).|

YTHDF2 is a member of the YTH (YT521-B homology) superfamily containing YTH domain. The YTH domain is typical for the eukaryotes and is particularly abundant in plants. The YTH domain is usually located in the middle of the protein sequence and may function in binding to RNA. In addition to a YTH domain, this protein has a proline rich region which may be involved in signal transduction. An Alu-rich domain has been identified in one of the introns of this gene, which is thought to be associated with human longevity. In addition, reciprocal translocations between this gene and the Runx1 (AML1) gene on chromosme 21 has been observed in patients with acute myeloid leukemia. This gene was initially mapped to chromosome 14, which was later turned out to be a pseudogene.
