    Anti-VAV2 (phospho Y172) antibody
    See all VAV2 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to VAV2 (phospho Y172)
  • Specificity
    ab86695 detects Vav1, Vav2, and Vav3 in Jurkat cells treated with pervanadate. The antibody does not detect these Vavs after treatment with alkaline phosphatase.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: WB, ELISAmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
    Predicted to work with: Mouse, Rat
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide conjugated to KLH corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding Tyr-172 in human VAV2. This sequence has high homology with similar regions in rat and mouse VAV2, and has significant homology to the conserved site in Vav1 and Vav3.

  • Positive control
    • A431 cells treated with EGF.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab86695 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 101 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 101 kDa).
ELISA 1/2000.


  • Function
    Guanine nucleotide exchange factor for the Rho family of Ras-related GTPases. Plays an important role in angiogenesis. Its recruitement by phosphorylated EPHA2 is critical for EFNA1-induced RAC1 GTPase activation and vascular endothelial cell migration and assembly.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain.
    Contains 1 DH (DBL-homology) domain.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
    Contains 1 phorbol-ester/DAG-type zinc finger.
    Contains 1 SH2 domain.
    Contains 2 SH3 domains.
