Overview

  • Product nameAnti-Notch2 antibody
    See all Notch2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to Notch2
  • SpecificityWhen tested on human cells overexpressing active Notch 2, this antibody detects a band at about 110kD that represents active Notch 2. This band is not seen in the control cells, confirming that it is Notch 2. The intracellular domain of Notch 2 has a predicted band size of 110kD, corresponding to this band. However, multiple other non-specific bands were also seen in the same experiment.

  • General notes


    Synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum as an inactive form which is proteolytically cleaved by a furin-like convertase in the trans-Golgi network before it reaches the plasma membrane to yield an active, ligand-accessible form. Cleavage results in a C-terminal fragment N(TM) and a N-terminal fragment N(EC). Following ligand binding, it is cleaved by TNF-alpha converting enzyme (TACE) to yield a membrane-associated intermediate fragment called notch extracellular truncation (NEXT). This fragment is then cleaved by presenilin dependent gamma-secretase to release a notch-derived peptide containing the intracellular domain (NICD) from the membrane Functions as a receptor for membrane-bound ligands Jagged1, Jagged2 and Delta1 to regulate cell-fate determination. Upon ligand activation through the released notch intracellular domain (NICD) it forms a transcriptional activator complex with RBP-J kappa and activates genes of the enhancer of split locus. Affects the implementation of differentiation, proliferation and apoptotic programs.

WB 1/400. Detects a band of approximately 110 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 110 kDa).

Target

  • FunctionFunctions as a receptor for membrane-bound ligands Jagged1, Jagged2 and Delta1 to regulate cell-fate determination. Upon ligand activation through the released notch intracellular domain (NICD) it forms a transcriptional activator complex with RBPJ/RBPSUH and activates genes of the enhancer of split locus. Affects the implementation of differentiation, proliferation and apoptotic programs (By similarity). Involved in bone remodeling and homeostasis. In collaboration with RELA/p65 enhances NFATc1 promoter activity and positively regulates RANKL-induced osteoclast differentiation. Positively regulates self-renewal of liver cancer cells (PubMed:25985737).
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the brain, heart, kidney, lung, skeletal muscle and liver. Ubiquitously expressed in the embryo.
  • Involvement in diseaseAlagille syndrome 2
    Hajdu-Cheney syndrome
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NOTCH family.
    Contains 6 ANK repeats.
    Contains 35 EGF-like domains.
    Contains 3 LNR (Lin/Notch) repeats.
