|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_071745, 11641261|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 106 kDa |
|Application Notes||ERAP2 antibody can be used for detection of ERAP2 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/ml.|
|Target/Specificity||ERAP2; ERAP2 antibody is human reactive. Multiple isoforms of ERAP2 are known to exist. ERAP2 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with ERAP1.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ERAP2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||ERAP2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Aminopeptidase that plays a central role in peptide trimming, a step required for the generation of most HLA class I- binding peptides. Peptide trimming is essential to customize longer precursor peptides to fit them to the correct length required for presentation on MHC class I molecules. Preferentially hydrolyzes the basic residues Arg and Lys.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Highly expressed in spleen and leukocytes.|

The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) aminopeptidase 2 (ERAP2), a member of the peptidase M1 family, like the related protein ERAP1, plays a central role in peptide trimming, a step required for the generation of most HLA class I-binding peptides (1,2). Like ERAP1, ERAP2 is localized to the lumen of the ER and is thought to associate with ERAP1 as a heterodimer (1). Both ERAP1 and ERAP2 have been linked to several human diseases ranging from infections to autoimmunity and cancer, and may play a role in the innate immune response (reviewed in 3).
