Rabbit anti Human TGN46 antibody recognizes Trans-Golgi network integral membrane protein 2, also known as TGN46, TGN38 homolog or Trans-Golgi network protein TGN51. TGN46 is a 480 amino acid ~110kDa single pass type I transmembrane glycoprotein associated with the trans golgi network membrane. TGN46 has been reported as being the best available marker for human trans-Golgi network.
