Mouse anti Human Sulfatase 2 (C-Terminal) antibody, clone 2B4 recognizes an epitope within the C-terminal (CT) subunit of Sulfatase 2 (Sulf-2). Sulf-2 is a novel extracellular heparan sulfate 6-O-endosulfatase, which selectively removes the critical sulfate group from the polysaccharide side chain of heparan sulfate proteoglycans, major components of the extracellular matrix, involved in cell differentiation, proliferation and migration. Sulf-2 acts as a modulator of several signalling proteins including Wnt proteins, bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) and fibroblast growth factors (FGFs), and is a direct transcriptional target of p53. Studies have linked Sulf-2 with several cancers, including breast, hepatocellular, and pancreatic cancer, and recently with non-small-cell lung carcinomas (Lemjabbar-Alaoui et al. 2010).

Mature human Sulf-2 is a heterodimer consisting of a 50kDa C-terminal subunit, essential for both glucosamine 6-O-sulfate-endosulfatase and arylsulfatase activity, and a 75kDa N-terminal subunit which contains the catalytic centre.

Mouse anti Human Sulfatase 2 (C-Terminal) antibody, clone 2B4 recognizes Sulfatase 2, showing no cross-reactivity with Sulfatase 1 in either human or mouse.
