Human anti mouse Padi2 antibody recognizes Peptidylarginine deiminase II also known as Padi2 or mKIAA0994.

Human anti mouse Padi2 may bind to protein-arginine deiminase type II of others species, due to a high sequence identity in the antigen region. The cross-species identity is: human 98%, rat 98%, chimpanzee 97%, dog 97%, chicken 87%.

The mKIAA0994 protein catalyzes the deimination of arginine residues of proteins. Protein L-arginine reacts to protein L-citrulline and ammonia. The enzyme requires calcium as cofactor. mKIAA0994 is expressed in various tissues including muscle, uterus, spinal cord, salivary gland and pancreas. It is expressed during the estrous cycle. During diestrus and proestrus cycle, the expression level drops eight fold. The protein belongs to the protein-arginine deiminase family.

Product Details

Target Species
Product Form
A lyophilised bivalent human recombinant Fab selected from the HuCAL® GOLD phage display library. Expressed in E. coli and purified using NiNTA affinity chromatography. This Fab fragment is dimerized via a helix-turn-helix motif. The antibody is tagged with a myc-tag (EQKLISEEDL) and a his-tag (HHHHHH) at the C-terminus of the antibody heavy chain.
