Target

  • Function

    The exact function of MAP2 is unknown but MAPs may stabilize the microtubules against depolymerization. They also seem to have a stiffening effect on microtubules.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 3 Tau/MAP repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated at serine residues in K-X-G-S motifs by MAP/microtubule affinity-regulating kinase (MARK1 or MARK2), causing detachment from microtubules, and their disassembly (By similarity). Isoform 2 is probably phosphorylated by PKA at Ser-323, Ser-354 and Ser-386 and by FYN at Tyr-67.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.

Images

  • ab92434 staining MAP2 in mouse brain neurons by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/2500 in PBS) for 24 hours at 4°C. ab150169, a goat anti-chicken Alexa Fluor® 488 (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.

  • Anti-MAP2 antibody (ab92434) at 1/20000 dilution + Rat cerebral cortex lysate

    Predicted band size: 280 kDa

  • ab92434 at 1/2500 dilution staining MAP2 in mixed neuron/glial cultures. by Immunofluorescence. The perikarya and dendrites of neurons are strongly and specifically stained with the MAP2 antibody (red). Cell nuclei are visualized with DAPI DNA stain.
