|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence is selected from aa 52-65 of HUMAN VANGL2|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the control of early morphogenesis and patterning of both axial midline structures and the development of neural plate. Plays a role in the regulation of planar cell polarity, particularly in the orientation of stereociliary bundles in the cochlea. Required for polarization and movement of myocardializing cells in the outflow tract and seems to act via RHOA signaling to regulate this process. Required for cell surface localization of FZD3 and FZD6 in the inner ear (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|

Planar cell polarity (PCP) is the term given to global cell polarization, such as the alignment of mammalian body hair along the anterior-posterior axis or the orientation of steriocilia bundles in the inner ear. VANGL2 is a PCP protein that is involved in the transmission of directional cues to align either individual cells within an epithelial sheet or multicellular clusters, which polarize as a group (Devenport and Fuchs, 2008 [PubMed 18849982]).
