|Other Names||Chondroitin sulfate synthase 2, Chondroitin glucuronyltransferase 2, Chondroitin-polymerizing factor, ChPF, Glucuronosyl-N-acetylgalactosaminyl-proteoglycan 4-beta-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase II, N-acetylgalactosaminyl-proteoglycan 3-beta-glucuronosyltransferase II, N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2, CHPF, CSS2|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP9046c was selected from the Center region of human CHPF. 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||Has both beta-1,3-glucuronic acid and beta-1,4-N- acetylgalactosamine transferase activity. Transfers glucuronic acid (GlcUA) from UDP-GlcUA and N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) from UDP-GalNAc to the non-reducing end of the elongating chondroitin polymer. Isoform 2 may facilitate PARK2 transport into the mitochondria. In collaboration with PARK2, isoform 2 may enhance cell viability and protect cells from oxidative stress.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Cytoplasm, cytosol Isoform 2: Mitochondrion matrix|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highly expressed in pancreas, ovary, brain, heart, skeletal muscle, colon, kidney, liver, stomach, spleen and placenta. Isoform 3 is also ubiquitous Isoform 2 is expressed in brain, spleen, ovary, testis, lung and peripheral mononuclear cells.|
