- CITATIONS: 2
|Application ||IHC-P, WB, E|
|Calculated MW||54067 Da|
|Antigen Region||138-167 aa|
|Other Names||Plasma alpha-L-fucosidase, Alpha-L-fucoside fucohydrolase 2, Alpha-L-fucosidase 2, FUCA2|
|Target/Specificity||This FUCA2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 138-167 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human FUCA2.|
|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||FUCA2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Alpha-L-fucosidase is responsible for hydrolyzing the alpha-1,6-linked fucose joined to the reducing-end N- acetylglucosamine of the carbohydrate moieties of glycoproteins.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Alpha-L-fucosidase catalyzes the hydrolysis of terminal alpha-L-fucosidase linkages in glycosphingolipids and glycoproteins. At least 2 separate polymorphic alpha-L-fucosidases are recognized in man. The FUCA2 locus regulates the level of alpha-fucosidase in plasma and fibroblasts but not in leukocytes. In fucosidosis, deficiency of alpha-L-fucosidase is found in both plasma and leukocytes.
