|Other Names||Calcium and integrin-binding family member 2, Kinase-interacting protein 2, KIP 2, CIB2, KIP2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8158a was selected from the N-term region of human KIP2 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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||Calcium-binding protein critical for proper photoreceptor cell maintenance and function. May play a role in calcium homeostasis and participate in calcium regulation in the mechanotransduction process (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Photoreceptor inner segment. Cell membrane, sarcolemma. Note=Expressed in inner and outer segments of photoreceptor cells, as well as in the pigmented epithelium. Also observed in the inner and outer plexiform layers and in the ganglion cell layer. Colocalized with ITGA7 at the myotendinous junctions (MTJ) and at the neuromuscular junctions (NMJ) (By similarity).|

DNA-dependent protein kinases (DNA-PK) play a role in the repair of double-strand DNA breaks and in the process of V(D)J recombination during lymphoid development. By EST database searching for sequences homologous to the DNA-PK gene KIP/CIB and 5-prime RACE, Seki, N et al. isolated a full-length cDNA, which they designated as KIP2, from a human fetal brain cDNA library. KIP2 encodes a deduced 187-amino acid protein with a predicted molecular mass of 22 kD. The KIP2 protein shares 46%, 39%, and 30% sequence identity with the calcium-binding proteins KIP/CIB, calcineurin B and calmodulin respectively. KIP2 contains two EF-hand motifs and a helix-loop-helix motif involved in coordinating the calcium ion, indicating that KIP2 may also bind calcium. KIP2 is ubiquitously expressed in various human tissues.
