|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_060322, 8923473|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||120515 Da|
|Application Notes||NALP2 antibody can be used for detection of NALP2 by Western blot at 1 to 2 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||NALP2 Antibody: NBS1, PAN1, NALP2, PYPAF2, CLR19.9, NBS1, NACHT, LRR and PYD domains-containing protein 2, Nucleotide-binding site protein 1, NLR family, pyrin domain containing 2|
|Reconstitution & Storage||NALP2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||NALP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||NALP2, NBS1, PAN1, PYPAF2|
|Function||Suppresses TNF- and CD40-induced NFKB1 activity at the level of the IKK complex, by inhibiting NFKBIA degradation induced by TNF. When associated with PYCARD, activates CASP1, leading to the secretion of mature proinflammatory cytokine IL1B. May be a component of the inflammasome, a protein complex which also includes PYCARD, CARD8 and CASP1 and whose function would be the activation of proinflammatory caspases.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in lung, placenta and thymus and at lower levels in ovary, intestine and brain|

NALP2 Antibody: NALP2 belongs to a family of cytoplasmic proteins that have been implicated in cell responses to apoptotic and inflammatory stimuli. Unlike the prototypical NALP protein NALP1, NALP2 only contains a NACHT domain, leucine rich repeat (LRR), and pyrin-containing domain (PYD). This protein interacts with the adapter protein ASC in addition to CARD8 and caspase-1 to form an inflammasome with high proIL-1β-processing activity and is thought to function as a modulator of NF-κB and procaspase-1 activation in macrophages. It has also been suggested that NALP2, in addition to other NALP family members, can act as innate sensors of pathogens in a manner similar to the toll-like receptors (TLRs). At least two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for NALP2.
