Mouse anti WIPI2
- Product Type
- Monoclonal Antibody
|Mouse anti Human WIPI2 antibody, clone 2A2 recognies WD repeat domain phosphoinositide-interacting protein 2 (WIPI-2), also known as WIPI49-like protein 2. WIPI2 is a 454 amino acid ~54 kDa autophagosomal marker containing three WD repeats. WIPI2 is a mammalian orthologue of the yeast protein Atg18 and is similarly recruited to early autophagosomal structures and is required for their maturation into mature autophagosomes (Polson et al. 2010).
Human WIPI2 exists in multiple isoforms including WIPI2A, the canonical 454 amino acid isoform and WIPI2B with deletions towards both the N and C terminal regions. Mouse anti Human WIPI2 antibody, clone 2A2 was generated using a C-terminal sequence and recognizes both WIPI2A and WIPI2B by western blotting (Pantoom et al. 2020)
Mouse anti Human WIPI2 antibody, clone 2A2 has been used for the immunofluorescent detection of WIPI2 in the human retinal epithelial cell line RPE1 (MacVicar and Lane 2014).
