PRICKLE2 Antibody: PRICKLE2, also known as Pk2 or EPM5, is a member of a highly conserved protein family that function in the noncanonical WNT signaling pathway which regulates intracellular calcium release and planar cell polarity. Both PRICKLE2 and the related protein PRICKLE1 are expressed in postmitotic neurons and promote neurite outgrowth, and both proteins promote neurite outgrowth via the Dishevelled dependent pathway in C1300 cells. PRICKLE2 localizes to the postsynaptic density and interacts with PSD-95 and NMDA receptors. Defects in the gene encoding PRICKLE2 are associated with autosomal recessive progressive myoclonic epilepsy.
