Mouse anti Human pro desmoglein 2 recognizes pro desmoglein 2, a member of the desmoglein family. Desmosomes are cell-cell junctions between epithelial, myocardial, and certain other cell types. Currently, four desmoglein subfamily members have been identified and all are members of the cadherin cell adhesion molecule superfamily.

Desmoglein 2 is a membrane glycoprotein with 4 highly conserved extracellular domains (EC1 - 4) and six cytoplasmic desmoglein repeat sequences. It has a predicted molecular weight of 122 kDa and an apparent molecular weight of 150 kDa, due to post translational modification. Desmoglein 2 is a core component of the desmosome cell-cell junction between cells. This protein has been identified as the autoantigen of the autoimmune skin blistering disease pemphigus vulgaris and mutations in the gene have been associated with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia.

Mouse anti Human pro desmoglein 2 specifically recognizes an epitope within the proregion domain of desmoglein 2, epitope mapping having demonstrated reactivity with fusion proteins containing the entire prodomain but not with fusion proteins lacking the proregion (Keim et al., 2008). This antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates and is available with a positive control lysate, in a smaller trial size, and as a standalone antibody.
