|Other Names||DNA-(apurinic or apyrimidinic site) lyase 2, 31--, AP endonuclease XTH2, APEX nuclease 2, APEX nuclease-like 2, Apurinic-apyrimidinic endonuclease 2, AP endonuclease 2, APEX2, APE2, APEXL2, XTH2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8975c was selected from the Center region of human APEX2. 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.|
|Synonyms||APE2, APEXL2, XTH2|
|Function||Function as a weak apurinic/apyrimidinic (AP) endodeoxyribonuclease in the DNA base excision repair (BER) pathway of DNA lesions induced by oxidative and alkylating agents. Initiates repair of AP sites in DNA by catalyzing hydrolytic incision of the phosphodiester backbone immediately adjacent to the damage, generating a single-strand break with 5'-deoxyribose phosphate and 3'-hydroxyl ends. Displays also double-stranded DNA 3'-5' exonuclease, 3'-phosphodiesterase activities. Shows robust 3'-5' exonuclease activity on 3'-recessed heteroduplex DNA and is able to remove mismatched nucleotides preferentially. Shows fairly strong 3'-phosphodiesterase activity involved in the removal of 3'-damaged termini formed in DNA by oxidative agents. In the nucleus functions in the PCNA-dependent BER pathway. Required for somatic hypermutation (SHM) and DNA cleavage step of class switch recombination (CSR) of immunoglobulin genes. Required for proper cell cycle progression during proliferation of peripheral lymphocytes.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Mitochondrion. Note=Together with PCNA, is redistributed in discrete nuclear foci in presence of oxidative DNA damaging agents|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in brain and kidney. Weakly expressed in the fetal brain.|
