|Other Names||Protein bicaudal D homolog 2, Bic-D 2, BICD2, KIAA0699|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7761b was selected from the C-term region of human BICD2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||May play a role in the dynein-dynactin interactions on the surface of membranous organelles, by associating with these complexes. Regulates coat complex coatomer protein I (COPI)- independent Golgi-endoplasmic reticulum transport by recruiting the dynein-dynactin motor complex (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=In interphase cells mainly localizes to the Golgi complex and colocalizes with dynactin at microtubule plus ends (By similarity). Its localization is dependent on microtubule morphology.|

BICD2 is one of two human homologs of Drosophila bicaudal-D and a member of the Bicoid family. It has been implicated in dynein-mediated, minus end-directed motility along microtubules. It has also been reported to be a phosphorylation target of NIMA related kinase 8.
