Sheep anti Human TGN46 antibody recognizes trans-Golgi network integral membrane protein 2 (TGOLN2), also known as TGN38 homolog, TGN46, TGN48 or trans-Golgi network protein TGN51. TGN46 is a 437 amino acid glycoprotein localized to the trans-Golgi network. TGN46 has been reported as being the best available marker for human trans-Golgi network.

TGN46 is a heavily glycosylated protein of around 110-120 kDa. Multiple isoforms of TGN46 are generated by alternative splicing differing in sequence at the C-terminal portion. Sheep anti Human TGN46 antibody is expected to recognize all identified isoforms.
