Mouse anti Human MCM2 antibody, clone CRCT2.1 recognizes human DNA replication licensing factor MCM2, also known as Mcm2, Nuclear protein BM28 or mini chromosome maintenance protein-2. Mcm-2 is a 904 amino acid ~125kDa nuclear protein involved in the control of DNA replication.

Mouse anti Human MCM2 antibody, clone CRCT2.1 has been used successfully for the detection of human MCM2 in ovarian adenocarcinoma by immunohistochemistry on formalin fixed, paraffin embedded tissues (Gakiopoulou et al. 2007).
