  • Function
    Functions as a renin and prorenin cellular receptor. May mediate renin-dependent cellular responses by activating ERK1 and ERK2. By increasing the catalytic efficiency of renin in AGT/angiotensinogen conversion to angiotensin I, it may also play a role in the renin-angiotensin system (RAS).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain, heart, placenta, liver, kidney and pancreas. Barely detectable in lung and skeletal muscles. In the kidney cortex it is restricted to the mesangium of glomeruli. In the coronary and kidney artery it is expressed in the subendothelium, associated to smooth muscles where it colocalizes with REN. Expressed in vascular structures and by syncytiotrophoblast cells in the mature fetal placenta.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in ATP6AP2 are a cause of mental retardation X-linked with epilepsy (MRXE) [MIM:300423]. MRXE is a syndromic mental retardation. Patients manifest mild to moderate mental retardation associated with epilepsy, delays in motor milestones and speech acquisition in infancy.

  • ab40790 staining ATP6IP2 in rat kidney tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections). Tissue from 4% PFA perfused animals underwent overnight fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde, cryoprotected in 30% sucrose and cut using cryostat. The primary antibody was diluted, 1/100 (PBS + 0.3% Triton X100) and incubated with sample for 18 hours at 20°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used at 1/1000 dilution, as secondary.

  • ab40790 staining ATP6IP2 in Human thoraci aortic sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone, permeabilized with Novacastra kit and blocked with Novacastra kit blocker for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) for 1 hour at 25°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody

  • ATP6IP2 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5 mg rat kidney tissue lysate, 5 µg of Rabbit polyclonal to ATP6IP2 and 50 µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10 minutes, rat kidney tissue lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10 minutes under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40 µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10 minutes at 70oC; 10 µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab40790.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 42 kDa; ATP6IP2

Customer reviews and Q&As

The immunogen for ab40790 is C-terminal, thus it should be able to detect both the soluble and full length form of ATP6IP2. However, the 2 forms only have a difference of 1.5 kDa in MW, which is very hard to distinguish via WB. If a low primary an...
