Product nameAnti-TGF beta 2 antibody
See all TGF beta 2 primary antibodies
DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to TGF beta 2
SpecificityThis antibody is raised against the latency associated peptide (LAP) region of TGFB2, so it will not recognize mature TGFB2.
Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, ICC/IFmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
Predicted to work with: Rabbit, Horse, Cow, Dog, Pig, Macaque monkey, Gorilla
Synthetic peptide corresponding to Human TGF beta 2 aa 250-350 conjugated to keyhole limpet haemocyanin.
(Peptide available as
- WB: MCF7 whole cell lysate and human breast, human adipose, rat kidney and mouse kidney tissue lysates. ICC/IF: HepG2 cells.

PurityImmunogen affinity purified
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab113670 in the following tested applications.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 48 kDa).|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
FunctionTGF-beta 2 has suppressive effects on interleukin-2 dependent T-cell growth.
Involvement in diseaseA chromosomal aberration involving TGFB2 is found in a family with Peters anomaly. Translocation t(1;7)(q41;p21) with HDAC9.
Loeys-Dietz syndrome 4
Defects in TGFB2 may be a cause of non-syndromic aortic disease (NSAD). NSAD is a frequently asymptomatic but potentially lethal disease characterized by thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections without additional syndromic features.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TGF-beta family.
modificationsThe precursor is cleaved into mature TGF-beta-2 and LAP, which remains non-covalently linked to mature TGF-beta-2 rendering it inactive.

ICC/IF image of ab113670 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab113670, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Predicted band size: 48 kDa
Observed band size: 55 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 68 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
