|Subcellular Localization||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Membrane, caveola; Peripheral membrane protein. Potential hairpin-like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae. Tyr-19-phosphorylated form is enriched at sites of cell-cell contact and is translocated to the nucleus in complex with MAPK1 in response to insulin (By similarity). Tyr-27- phosphorylated form is located both in the cytoplasm and plasma membrane. CAV1-mediated Ser-23-phosphorylated form locates to the plasma membrane. Ser-36-phosphorylated form resides in intracellular compartments. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in endothelial cells, smooth muscle cells, skeletal myoblasts and fibroblasts. .|

|Immunogen||E.coli-derived human Caveolin-2 recombinant protein (Position: M1-D162). Human Caveolin-2 shares 90% and 89% amino acid (aa) sequences identity with mouse and rat Caveolin-2, respectively.|
|Purification||Immunogen affinity purified.|
|Cross Reactivity||No cross reactivity with other proteins|
|Storage||At -20˚C for one year. After r˚Constitution, at 4˚C for one month. It˚Can also be aliquotted and stored frozen at -20˚C for a longer time.Avoid repeated freezing and thawing.|
|Sequence Similarities||Belongs to the caveolin family.|
|Function||May act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity. Acts as an accessory protein in conjunction with CAV1 in targeting to lipid rafts and driving caveolae formation. The Ser-36 phosphorylated form has a role in modulating mitosis in endothelial cells. Positive regulator of cellular mitogenesis of the MAPK signaling pathway. Required for the insulin-stimulated nuclear translocation and activation of MAPK1 and STAT3, and the subsequent regulation of cell cycle progression (By similarity).|

Caveolin-2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CAV2 gene. It is mapped to 7q31.1-q31.2. The protein encoded by this gene is a major component of the inner surface of caveolae, small invaginations of the plasma membrane, and is involved in essential cellular functions, including signal transduction, lipid metabolism, cellular growth control and apoptosis. This protein may function as a tumor suppressor. Caveolin-2 is a protein related to caveolin-1 which is derived caveolin-enriched membranes. CAV2 and CAV1 are similar in most respects and they differ in their functional interactions with heterotrimeric G proteins. Both of them are expressed in neuronal cells. Caveolin-2 was upregulated in response to neuronal cell injury.
