Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 0.25 - 2 µg/ml.
Fixation/Permeabilization: PFA/Triton X-100.
|IHC-P||1/20 - 1/50. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
FunctionFunctions as a calcium permeable cation channel. PKD1 and PKD2 may function through a common signaling pathway that is necessary for normal tubulogenesis.
Tissue specificityStrongly expressed in ovary, fetal and adult kidney, testis, and small intestine. Not detected in peripheral leukocytes.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in PKD2 are the cause of polycystic kidney disease autosomal dominant type 2 (ADPKD2) [MIM:613095]. ADPKD2 is a disorder characterized by progressive formation and enlargement of cysts in both kidneys, typically leading to end-stage renal disease in adult life. Cysts also occurs in the liver and other organs. It represents approximately 15% of the cases of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. ADPKD2 is clinically milder than ADPKD1 but it has a deleterious impact on overall life expectancy.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the polycystin family.
Contains 1 EF-hand domain.
DomainThe C-terminal coiled-coil domain binds calcium and undergoes a calcium-induced conformation change. It is implicated in oligomerization and the interaction with PKD1.
Cellular localizationMembrane. Endoplasmic reticulum.
