Target/Specificity TRMT12; TYW2 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other TYW protein family members. At least two isoforms of TYW2 are known to exist; this antibody will detect both isoforms
Reconstitution & Storage TYW2 antibody can be stored at 4 ℃, stable for 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.
PrecautionsTYW2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name TRMT12
Synonyms TRM12, TYW2
Function S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent transferase that acts as a component of the wybutosine biosynthesis pathway. Wybutosine is a hyper modified guanosine with a tricyclic base found at the 3'-position adjacent to the anticodon of eukaryotic phenylalanine tRNA. Catalyzes the transfer of the alpha-amino-alpha- carboxypropyl (acp) group from S-adenosyl-L-methionine to the C-7 position of 4-demethylwyosine (imG-14) to produce wybutosine-86.

TYW2 Antibody: TYW2, also known as TRM12, is an enzyme that participates in the wybutosine-tRNA (Phe) biosynthesis pathway. Wybutosine (yW) is a hypermodified guanosine at the 3-prime position adjacent to the anticodon of phenylalanine tRNA that stabilizes codon-anticodon interactions during decoding on the ribosome. TYW2 is involved in a multistep enzymatic reaction that stabilizes codon-anticodon base-pairing during the ribosomal decoding process, thereby ensuring correct translation. TYW2 was found to be amplified in 7 of 8 breast cancers cell lines analyzed, and qPCR analysis of 30 breast tumors showed overexpression of TYW2 mRNA of over 2-fold in 26, suggesting that TYW2 may play a role in breast cancer.
