SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse, Rat
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, IHC-P, WB
APPLICATIONS:IQSEC2 antibody can be used for detection of IQSEC2 by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/ml. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 μg/mL.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1220 - SK-N-SH Cell Lysate
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:Predicted: 104, 133, 141, 164 kDa

Observed: 140 kDa
SPECIFICITY:IQSEC2 antibody is human, mouse and rat reactive. At least two isoforms of IQSEC2 are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the larger isoform. IQSEC2 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with IQSEC1.
IMMUNOGEN:IQSEC2 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid peptide near the carboxy terminus of human IQSEC2.

The immunogen is located within amino acids 1380 - 1430 of IQSEC2.
HOST SPECIES:Rabbit

Background

BACKGROUND:ADP ribosylation factors (Arfs) are small GTP-binding proteins known for their role in vesicular transport, where they nucleate the assembly of coat protein complexes at sites of carrier vesicle formation. Similar to the related protein IQSEC1, IQSEC2 is a guanine nucleotide exchange protein for ARF1 and ARF6 that belongs to the BRAG family and contains one IQ domain, one PH domain and one SEC7 domain (1,2). IQSEC2 is a major component of the postsynaptic density (PSD) and colocalizes with PSD-95. It has been suggested to modulate the functions of the ARF proteins (1). Mutations in this gene have been implicated in nonsyndromic X-linked mental retardation (3).
