|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_982278, 66773040|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||32194 Da|
|Application Notes||PPAPDC2 antibody can be used for detection of PPAPDC2 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PPAPDC2 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||PPAPDC2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Phosphatase that dephosphorylates presqualene diphosphate (PSDP) into presqualene monophosphate (PSMP), suggesting that it may be indirectly involved in innate immunity. PSDP is a bioactive lipid that rapidly remodels to presqualene monophosphate PSMP upon cell activation. Displays diphosphate phosphatase activity with a substrate preference for PSDP > FDP > phosphatidic acid.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed in most organs, in particular gastrointestinal organs, spleen, placenta, kidney, thymus and brain.|

PPAPDC2 Antibody: PPAPDC2 is a phosphatase that dephosphorylates Presqualene diphosphate (PSDP) into presqualene monophosphate (PSMP), suggesting that it may have important role in innate immunity. PSDP is a bioactive lipid that rapidly remodels to PSMP upon cell activation. PPAPDC2 displays diphosphate phosphatase activity with a substrate preference for PSDP > FDP > phosphatidic acid. PPAPDC2 activity is independent of Mg2+ and has been identified in activated human neutrophil (PMN) extracts. It is widely expressed in human tissues. Recent studies shows PPAPDC2 is a functional isoprenoid diphosphate phosphatase.
