PrecautionsHIG2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Function Proposed subunit of cytochrome c oxidase (COX, complex IV), which is the terminal component of the mitochondrial respiratory chain that catalyzes the reduction of oxygen to water. May be involved in cytochrome c oxidase activity. May play a role in the assembly of respiratory supercomplexes.
Cellular Location Mitochondrion membrane {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00836, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22342701}; Multi-pass membrane protein {ECO:0000255|PROSITE-ProRule:PRU00836, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22342701}. Mitochondrion inner membrane

HIG2 Antibody: HIG1 and HIG2 (Hypoxia-inducible gene 1 and 2, respectively) are known to be induced by hypoxic conditions. HIG2 is induced by hypoxia and by glucose deprivation in cultured cells. In addition, tumor xenografts derived from human cervical cancer cells display increased expression of HIG1 and HIG2 when they are deprived of oxygen. Unlike HIG2, which is ubiquitously expressed and might be an activator and target of the canonical Wnt pathway, the function and the mechanisms underlying its regulation of HIG1 still remained unknown. The putative link between hypoxia and an oncogenic signaling pathway might play an important role in tumorigenesis.
