|Other Names||Derlin-2, Degradation in endoplasmic reticulum protein 2, DERtrin-2, Der1-like protein 2, F-LAN-1, F-LANa, DERL2, DER2, FLANA|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8707b was selected from the C-term region of human DERL2. 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||Functional component of endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) for misfolded lumenal glycoproteins, but not that of misfolded nonglycoproteins. May act by forming a channel that allows the retrotranslocation of misfolded glycoproteins into the cytosol where they are ubiquitinated and degraded by the proteasome. May mediate the interaction between VCP and the degradation substrate. In contrast to DERL1, it is not involved in the degradation of MHC class I heavy chains following infection by cytomegaloviruses. May play a role in cell proliferation.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi- pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Overexpressed in various hepatocarcinomas.|

Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
Proteins that are unfolded or misfolded in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) must be refolded or degraded to maintain the homeostasis of the ER. DERL2 is involved in the degradation of misfolded glycoproteins in the ER.
