  • Description

    Rabbit polyclonal to GGA2
  • Host species

  • Specificity

    This antibody recognises two bands by Western at 75 and 37kD. This corresponds to results seen in Hela extracts in Dell'Angelica et al. 2000. The lower 37kD band is expected to correspond to the isoform described in NP_619581.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent dilution.
WB 1/500. Detects a band of approximately 75, 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 67 kDa).


  • Function

    Plays a role in protein sorting and trafficking between the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and endosomes. Mediates the ARF-dependent recruitment of clathrin to the TGN and binds ubiquitinated proteins and membrane cargo molecules with a cytosolic acidic cluster-dileucine (AC-LL) motif.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitously expressed.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the GGA protein family.
    Contains 1 GAE domain.
    Contains 1 GAT domain.
    Contains 1 VHS domain.
  • Domain

    The VHS domain functions as a recognition module for sorting signals composed of an acidic cluster followed by two leucines (AC-LL motif).
    The GAT domain is responsible for interaction with ARF-GTP, UBC and RABEP1. Required for recruitment to the TGN it prevents ARF-GTP hydrolysis.
    The unstructured hinge region contains clathrin-binding but no autoinhibitory (AC-LL) motifs.
    The GAE domain binds accessory proteins regulating GGAs function.
  • Post-translational

  • Cellular localization

    Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Endosome membrane.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry. As far as we are aware, cross reactivity with mouse has not yet been tested for use with ab10552. All species cross-reactivity information is stated on Abcam product datasheets, and these are updated as soon as any new information is brought to our attention. However, I have run a BLAST search (results below) using the immunogen sequence and found that there is 82% homolgy with mouse. We would normally expect a high chance of positive results if the homology was more than 90%. However, this does not mean that the antibody will not work, just that we have not tested it and therefore, can not guarantee that you will get good results.
