Target

  • Function
    The exact function of MAP2 is unknown but MAPs may stabilize the microtubules against depolymerization. They also seem to have a stiffening effect on microtubules.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 3 Tau/MAP repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated at serine residues in K-X-G-S motifs by MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinase (MARK1 or MARK2), causing detachment from microtubules, and their disassembly (By similarity). Isoform 2 is probably phosphorylated by PKA at Ser-323, Ser-354 and Ser-386 and by FYN at Tyr-67.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.

Bound antibody was detected using a biotinylated donkey anti-mouse IgG antibody. This image is courtesy of an Abreview submitted by Randal Moldrich, 6 March 2008.
  • ab11268 staining MAP2 in mouse brain tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). Tissue samples were fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocking with a solution containing 2% Block Ace, 0.05% Triton X-100 and PBS was performed at 250C for 1 hour. The sample was incubated with primary antibody (1/5000) in a dilution buffer containing 2% Block Ace, 0.05% Triton X-100 and PBS at 40C for 12 hours. An FITC-conjugated donkey polyclonal to mouse IgG was used as secondary antibody at 1/500 dilution.
