Rabbit anti Mouse ULK2 antibody recognizes mouse Ulk2 (Serine/threonine-protein kinase Ulk2), otherwise known as Unc-51-like kinase 2, a widely expressed mammalian Atg1 homologue and member of the protein kinase superfamily, which shares structural similarity with a serine/threonine kinase found in C. elegans, known to be involved in axonal elongation.
Ulk2 and closely-related Ulk1, localize to autophagic isolation membranes under starvation conditions and binding of Atg13 (Autophagy-related protein 13) to Ulk1 and Ulk2, stabilizes and activates them, facilitating the phosphorylation of FIP200. FIP200 is a multifunctional protein involved in cell migration, proliferation, apoptosis, and tumor suppression.

- Product Form
- Purified IgG - liquid
- Antiserum Preparation
- Antiserum to mouse Ulk2 was raised by repeated immunisation of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared by affinity chromatography.
- Buffer Solution
- Phosphate buffered saline.
- Preservative Stabilisers
- 0.09% Sodium Azide (NaN3)
- KLH conjugated synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 370-382 of mouse Ulk2. The corresponding sequence differs by two amino acids in rat and three amino acids in human.
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
- Store at +4oC or at -20oC if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
