|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||44796 Da|
|Antigen Region||117-145 aa|
|Other Names||Phosphoglycerate kinase 2, Phosphoglycerate kinase, testis specific, PGK2, PGKB|
|Target/Specificity||This PGK2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 117-145 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human PGK2.|
|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||PGK2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential for sperm motility and male fertility (PubMed:26677959). Not required for the completion of spermatogenesis (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Mainly found in round spermatids. Localized on the principle piece in the sperm (at protein level). Testis- specific. Expression significantly decreased in the testis of elderly men.|

PGK2 is a form of phosphoglycerate kinase unique to spermatozoa. The autosomal PGK2 gene lacks introns and contains characteristics of a processed gene. The conservation of function in this processed PGK2 gene and its tissue-specific expression in spermatogenesis suggests that it exists as a compensatory response to the inactivation of the X-linked PGK1 gene in spermatogenic cells before meiosis.
