|Other Names||STIM2 Antibody: KIAA1482, Stromal interaction molecule 2, stromal interaction molecule 2|
|Reconstitution & Storage||STIM2 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||STIM2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in mediating store-operated Ca(2+) entry (SOCE), a Ca(2+) influx following depletion of intracellular Ca(2+) stores. Functions as a highly sensitive Ca(2+) sensor in the endoplasmic reticulum which activates both store-operated and store-independent Ca(2+)-influx. Regulates basal cytosolic and endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) concentrations. Upon mild variations of the endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) concentration, translocates from the endoplasmic reticulum to the plasma membrane where it probably activates the Ca(2+) release-activated Ca(2+) (CRAC) channels ORAI1, ORAI2 and ORAI3. May inhibit STIM1-mediated Ca(2+) influx.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Note=Dynamically translocates from a uniform endoplasmic reticulum distribution to punctual endoplasmic reticulum-plasma membrane junctions in response to decrease in endoplasmic reticulum Ca(2+) concentration|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues and tumor cell lines examined.|

STIM2 Antibody: In T lymphocytes, the sole pathway for Ca++ entry following antigen-receptor binding is through store-operated Ca++-release-activated Ca++ (CRAC) channels. These channels are made up of the pore-forming subunit ORAI1 and the stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1), a protein that functions as a Ca++ sensor and activates the CRAC channels, migrating to the plasma membrane from endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-like sites which act as the Ca++ store. A related molecule, STIM2, acts to inhibit the STIM1-mediated store-operated Ca++ entry, and can form complexes with STIM1, suggesting they may play a coordinated role in controlling Ca++ entry. At least three isoforms of STIM2 are known to exist. This STIM2 antibody is predicted to have no cross-reactivity to STIM1.
