|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_003626, 4505353|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 97 kDa |
Observed: 101 kDa
|Application Notes||NDST2 antibody can be used for detection of PDCL by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/ml. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||NDST2; NDST2 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least two isoforms of NDST2 are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the larger isoform. NDST2 antibody is predicted not to cross-react with other members of the NDST protein family.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||NDST2 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||NDST2 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes both the N- deacetylation and the N-sulfation of glucosamine (GlcNAc) of the glycosaminoglycan in heparan sulfate. Modifies the GlcNAc-GlcA disaccharide repeating sugar backbone to make N-sulfated heparosan, a prerequisite substrate for later modifications in heparin biosynthesis. Plays a role in determining the extent and pattern of sulfation of heparan sulfate. Required for the exosomal release of SDCBP, CD63 and syndecan (PubMed:22660413).|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|

The N-deacetylase/N-sulfotransferase (heparan glucosaminyl) 2 (NDST2) protein, also known as N-heparan sulfate sulfotransferase 2, and the highly related protein NDST1 have key roles in the sulfation of heparan sulfate proteoglycans, molecules that are present of cell surfaces and the extracellular matrix (1,2). NDST1 and NDST2 are dispensable for mesodermal differentiation into osteoblasts but necessary for induction of adipocytes and neural cells (3).
