|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||53924 Da|
|Antigen Region||156-183 aa|
|Other Names||Beta-chimaerin, Beta-chimerin, Rho GTPase-activating protein 3, CHN2, ARHGAP3, BCH|
|Target/Specificity||This CHN2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 156-183 amino acids from the Central region of human CHN2.|
|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||CHN2 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||GTPase-activating protein for p21-rac. Insufficient expression of beta-2 chimaerin is expected to lead to higher Rac activity and could therefore play a role in the progression from low-grade to high-grade tumors.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Highest levels in the brain and pancreas. Also expressed in the heart, placenta, and weakly in the kidney and liver. Expression is much reduced in the malignant gliomas, compared to normal brain or low-grade astrocytomas|

This gene is a member of the chimerin family and encodes a protein with a phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc finger, a Rho-GAP domain and an SH2 domain. This protein has GTPase-activating protein activity that is regulated by phospholipid binding and binding of diacylglycerol (DAG) induces translocation of the protein from the cytosol to the Golgi apparatus membrane. The protein plays a role in the proliferation and migration of smooth muscle cells. Decreased expression of this gene is associated with high-grade gliomas and breast tumors, and increased expression of this gene is associated with lymphomas. Mutations in this gene have been associated with schizophrenia in men. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.
