|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||Q4R7C8, NP_776170.2|
|Calculated MW||15961 Da|
|Antigen Region||14-40 aa|
|Other Names||Biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles complex 1 subunit 2, BLOC-1 subunit 2, Centrosome-associated protein, BLOC1S2, BLOS2, CEAP|
|Target/Specificity||This BLOC1S2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 14-40 amino acids from the Central region of human BLOC1S2.|
|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||BLOC1S2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the BLOC-1 complex, a complex that is required for normal biogenesis of lysosome-related organelles (LRO), such as platelet dense granules and melanosomes. In concert with the AP-3 complex, the BLOC-1 complex is required to target membrane protein cargos into vesicles assembled at cell bodies for delivery into neurites and nerve terminals. The BLOC-1 complex, in association with SNARE proteins, is also proposed to be involved in neurite extension. Plays a role in intracellular vesicle trafficking. May play a role in cell proliferation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome Note=Localizes to the centrosomes in a microtubule-dependent manner|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are widely expressed. Expressed in various malignant tumor tissues (at protein level)|

BLOC1S2 is a component of the ubiquitously expressed BLOC1 multisubunit protein complex. BLOC1 is required for normal biogenesis of specialized organelles of the endosomal-lysosomal system, such as melanosomes and platelet dense granules (Starcevic and Dell'Angelica, 2004 [PubMed 15102850]).
