|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_057710, 148229134|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||69366 Da|
|Application Notes||Rkhd2 antibody can be used for detection of Rkhd2 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Rkhd2 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||Rkhd2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||E3 ubiquitin ligase responsible for the post- transcriptional regulation of common HLA-A allotypes. Binds to the 3' UTR of HLA-A2 mRNA, and regulates its levels by promoting mRNA decay. RNA binding is sufficient to prevent translation, but ubiquitin ligase activity is required for mRNA degradation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Predominantly expressed in the cytoplasm and shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus through the CRM1 export pathway. May act as suppressor of replication stress and chromosome missegregation|
|Tissue Location||Highest levels found in fetal brain and testis. Also expressed in thymus, salivary gland and uterus Highly expressed in cells of the innate immune system, in particular activated NK cells. Week expression in the intestine|

Rkhd2 Antibody: Rkhd2, also known as MEX3C is a member of a novel family of four homologous human MEX3 proteins each containing two heterogeneous nuclear ribonucleoprotein K homology (KH) domains and one carboxy-terminal RING finger module. MEX3 proteins, including Rkhd2, are phosphoproteins that bind RNA through their KH domains and shuttle between the nucleus and the cytoplasm via the CRM1 export pathway. These proteins are a novel family of evolutionarily conserved RNA-binding proteins, differentially recruited to P bodies and potentially involved in post-transcriptional regulatory mechanisms. It has been suggested that genetic variations in Rkhd2 may be associated with susceptibility to essential hypertension type 8. Rkhd3 and Rkhd4, but not Rkhd2, co-localize with both the hDcp1a decapping factor and Argonaute (Ago) proteins in processing bodies (P bodies), recently characterized as centers of mRNA turnover.
