  • FunctionLigand for the NKG2D receptor, together with at least ULBP1 and ULBP3. ULBPs activate multiple signaling pathways in primary NK cells, resulting in the production of cytokines and chemokines. Binding of ULBPs ligands to NKG2D induces calcium mobilization and activation of the JAK2, STAT5, ERK and PI3K kinase/Akt signal transduction pathway. In CMV infected cells, interacts with soluble CMV glycoprotein UL16. The interaction with UL16 blocked the interaction with the NKG2D receptor, providing a mechanism by which CMV infected cells might escape the immune system. UL16 also causes ULBP2 to be retained in the ER and cis-Golgi apparatus so that it does not reach the cell surface.

  • Anti-ULBP2 antibody (ab88645) at 1 µg/ml + Human ovary cancer tissue lysate at 50 µg

    Predicted band size : 27 kDa
    Observed band size : ~35 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • All lanes : Anti-ULBP2 antibody (ab88645) at 1 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : cell lysate from ULBP2 transfected 293T cells
    Lane 2 : cell lysate from non transfected 293T cells

    Lysates/proteins at 25 µg per lane.

    Predicted band size : 27 kDa
    Observed band size : ~29 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : ~27 kDa,~33 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
