Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • Function

    Coats the epithelia of the intestines, airways, and other mucus membrane-containing organs. Thought to provide a protective, lubricating barrier against particles and infectious agents at mucosal surfaces. Major constituent of both the inner and outer mucus layers of the colon and may play a role in excluding bacteria from the inner mucus layer.
  • Tissue specificity

    Colon, small intestine, colonic tumors, bronchus, cervix and gall bladder.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.
    Contains 1 TIL (trypsin inhibitory-like) domain.
    Contains 2 VWFC domains.
    Contains 4 VWFD domains.
  • Post-translational

    May undergo proteolytic cleavage in the outer mucus layer of the colon, contributing to the expanded volume and loose nature of this layer which allows for bacterial colonization in contrast to the inner mucus layer which is dense and devoid of bacteria.
    At low pH of 6 and under, undergoes autocatalytic cleavage in vitro in the N-terminal region of the fourth VWD domain. It is likely that this also occurs in vivo and is triggered by the low pH of the late secretory pathway.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted. In the intestine, secreted into the inner and outer mucus layers.

Thank you for contacting us. Having searched for swine MUC2 sequence from NCBI and SwissProt I have been unable to identify a sequence. I am therefore unable to do a comparison of the human sequence (to which all of our MUC2 antibodies are directed). Having performed a blast of the human protein no significant homology was found with any swine protein. Unfortunately I can therefore not recommend any of our antibodies. If you have a sequence for the protein which you are interested in I can try to compare that for you and advise futher. I'm sorry that I could not be of more help. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
