|Application ||WB, IHC-P, FC, E|
|Other Accession||Q5M7U6, P61161, P53488, A7MB62, Q7ZTP2|
|Predicted||Xenopus, Bovine, Chicken, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||44761 Da|
|Antigen Region||191-219 aa|
|Other Names||Actin-related protein 2, Actin-like protein 2, ACTR2, ARP2|
|Target/Specificity||This ACTR2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 191-219 amino acids from the Central region of human ACTR2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||ACTR2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Functions as ATP-binding component of the Arp2/3 complex which is involved in regulation of actin polymerization and together with an activating nucleation-promoting factor (NPF) mediates the formation of branched actin networks. Seems to contact the pointed end of the daughter actin filament.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell projection|
