  • Target

    • FunctionRequired for asymmetric spindle positioning, asymmetric oocyte division and polar body extrusion during female germ cell meiosis (By similarity). Actin-binding protein that is involved in actin cytoskeleton assembly and reorganization. Acts as an actin nucleation factor and promotes assembly of actin filaments together with SPIRE1 and SPIRE2. Involved in intracellular vesicle transport along actin fibers, providing a novel link between actin cytoskeleton dynamics and intracellular transport. Plays a role in responses to DNA damage, cellular stress and hypoxia by protecting CDKN1A against degradation, and thereby plays a role in stress-induced cell cycle arrest. Protects cells against apoptosis by protecting CDKN1A against degradation.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed almost exclusively in the developing and mature central nervous system.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the formin homology family. Cappuccino subfamily.
      Contains 1 FH1 (formin homology 1) domain.
      Contains 1 FH2 (formin homology 2) domain.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Cell membrane. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Nucleus > nucleolus. Recruited to the membranes via its interaction with SPIRE1. Colocalizes with the actin cytoskeleton. Detected at the cleavage furrow during asymmetric oocyte division and polar body extrusion.

      Lane 1 : human brain lysate
      Lane 2 : human brain lysate with immunising peptide

      Predicted band size : 180 kDa
      Observed band size : 150 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
      Additional bands at : 67 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
    • ab72052 staining FMN2 in Mouse MEF cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilzed with 1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 10% horse serum + 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in blocking buffer) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor®-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
