Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 0.1 - 1 µg/ml.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Can be blocked with Mouse Axin 2 peptide (ab32196). Detects a band of approximately 94 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 94 kDa) in endogenous lysates. Ab32197 gave a positive signal against the tagged partial recombinant protein which has an expected molecular weight of 37 kDa.
Flow Cyt 1/50.

ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.



  • Function
    Inhibitor of the Wnt signaling pathway. Down-regulates beta-catenin. Probably facilitate the phosphorylation of beta-catenin and APC by GSK3B.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain and lymphoblast.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in AXIN2 are involved in colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]. They appear to be specifically associated with defective mismatch repair.
    Defects in AXIN2 are the cause of oligodontia-colorectal cancer syndrome (ODCRCS) [MIM:608615]. Affected individuals manifest severe tooth agenesis and colorectal cancer or precancerous lesions of variable types.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 DIX domain.
    Contains 1 RGS domain.
  • Domain
    The tankyrase-binding motif (also named TBD) is required for interaction with tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2.
  • Post-translational
    Probably phosphorylated by GSK3B and dephosphorylated by PP2A.
    ADP-ribosylated by tankyrase TNKS and TNKS2. Poly-ADP-ribosylated protein is recognized by RNF146, followed by ubiquitination and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway.
    Ubiquitinated by RNF146 when poly-ADP-ribosylated, leading to its degradation and subsequent activation of the Wnt signaling pathway. Deubiquitinated by USP34, deubiquitinated downstream of beta-catenin stabilization step: deubiquitination is important Wnt signaling to positively regulate beta-catenin (CTNBB1)-mediated transcription.

  • IHC image of ab32197 stained area of normal tissue in a human colorectal cancer FFPE section. Section was pre-treated using pressure cooker heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6) for 30 seconds at 125°C. Section was incubated with ab32197 at a dilution of 1:500 for 1h at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of human permeabilised REH B cells labeling Axin 2 with ab32197 (red). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with saponin, followed by incubation with 2ul of undiluted Anti-Axin 2 antibody (ab32197)  in 100µl of cells in PBS for 15 minutes at 4°C. An undiluted polyclonal goat anti-rabbit Alexa Fluor® 488 was used as the secondary antibody. Control - rabbit IgG (white).
