  • Function
    Probable early component of the autophagy machinery being involved in formation of preautophagosomal structures and their maturation into mature phagosomes in response to PtdIns3P. May bind PtdIns3P.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitously expressed (at protein level). Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas. Expression is down-regulated in pancreatic and in kidney tumors.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the WD repeat SVP1 family.
    Contains 3 WD repeats.
  • Cellular localization
    Preautophagosomal structure membrane. Enriched at preautophagosomal structure membranes in response to ptdIns3P.

Anti-WIPI2 antibody [2A2] images

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab105459 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab105459, 0.1μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab150113) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter. This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
