Anti-ZP2 Picoband Antibody

  • WB - Anti-ZP2 Picoband Antibody ABO12597
    Western blot analysis of ZP2 expression in HELA whole cell lysates (lane 1) and HEPG2 whole cell lysates (lane 2). ZP2 at 82KD was detected using rabbit anti- ZP2 Antigen Affinity purified polyclonal antibody (Catalog # ABO12597) at0.5 ??g/mL. The blot was developed using chemiluminescence (ECL) method .
  • IHC - Anti-ZP2 Picoband Antibody ABO12597
    ZP2 was detected in paraffin-embedded sections of human intestinal cancer tissues using rabbit anti- ZP2 Antigen Affinity purified polyclonal antibody (Catalog # ABO12597) at 1 μg/mL. The immunohistochemical section was developed using SABC method .
  • IHC - Anti-ZP2 Picoband Antibody ABO12597
    Figure 3. IHC analysis of ZP2 using anti-ZP2 antibody (ABO12597).ZP2 was detected in frozen section of human placenta tissue . Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed in citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution) for 20 mins. The tissue section was blocked with 10% goat serum. The tissue section was then incubated with 1μg/ml rabbit anti-ZP2 Antibody (ABO12597) overnight at 4°C. Biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as secondary antibody and incubated for 30 minutes at 37°C. The tissue section was developed using Strepavidin-Biotin-Complex (SABC) with DAB as the chromogen.

Protein Information
Name ZP2
Synonyms ZPA
Function The mammalian zona pellucida, which mediates species- specific sperm binding, induction of the acrosome reaction and prevents post-fertilization polyspermy, is composed of three to four glycoproteins, ZP1, ZP2, ZP3, and ZP4. ZP2 may act as a secondary sperm receptor.
Cellular Location Processed zona pellucida sperm-binding protein 2: Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P20239}. Note=The glycoproteinaceous translucent extracellular matrix that surrounds the mammalian oocyte is called zona pellucida. {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:P20239}

Zona pellucida sperm-binding protein 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ZP2 gene. The sperm-binding domain on the ZP2 protein is necessary in both humans and mice for oocyte-sperm recognition and penetration of the zona pellucida. It is also responsible for the primary block to polyspermy in mammals. The oocyte has cortical granules peripherally located under the cortex that contain a proteolytic protein called ovastacin. After the sperm binds to ZP2, the cortical granules are exocytosed releasing ovastacin into the perivitelline space. Ovastacin cleaves ZP2 at the N terminus, preventing more sperm from binding and penetrating the oocyte, thus hardening the zona pellucida. Ovastacin is only found in oocytes, and is part of the astacin family of metalloendoproteases. Female mice engineered without ovastacin showed that ZP2 was not cleaved after fertilization.
