|Other Names||WD repeat domain phosphoinositide-interacting protein 2, WIPI-2, WIPI49-like protein 2, WIPI2|
|Target/Specificity||This WIPI2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 426-454 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human WIPI2.|
|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||WIPI2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Early component of the autophagy machinery being involved in formation of preautophagosomal structures and their maturation into mature phagosomes in response to phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate (PtdIns3P). May bind PtdIns3P.|
|Cellular Location||Preautophagosomal structure membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side Note=Localizes to omegasomes membranes which are endoplasmic reticulum connected strutures at the origin of preautophagosomal structures. Enriched at preautophagosomal structure membranes in response to PtdIns3P.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed (at protein level). Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas Expression is down-regulated in pancreatic and in kidney tumors|

WD40 repeat proteins are key components of many essential biologic functions. They regulate the assembly of multiprotein complexes by presenting a beta-propeller platform for simultaneous and reversible protein-protein interactions. Members of the WIPI subfamily of WD40 repeat proteins, such as WIPI2, have a 7-bladed propeller structure and contain a conserved motif for interaction with phospholipids (Proikas-Cezanne et al., 2004 [PubMed 15602573]).
