METAP2 antibody | OTI1F6
METAP2 is a member of the methionyl aminopeptidase family and is a protein that binds 2 cobalt or manganese ions. This protein functions both by protecting the alpha subunit of eukaryotic initiation factor 2 from inhibitory phosphorylation and by removing the amino-terminal methionine residue from nascent protein. Increased expression of METAP2 is associated with various forms of cancer and the anti-cancer drugs fumagillin and ovalicin inhibit the protein by irreversibly binding to its active site. A pseudogene of METAP2 is located on chromosome 2 (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
Mouse anti Human METAP2 antibody detects a band of 63 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
