Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferase 2(TGM2) detection. Tested with WB, IHC-P, IHC-F in Human;Mouse;Rat.
Tissue transglutaminase, also called TGC, is a 78-kDa, calcium dependent enzyme of the protein-glutamine gamma-glutamyltransferases family. By fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), this gene is mapped in 20q11.23. Transglutaminases are enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of proteins by epsilon-gamma glutamyl lysine isopeptide bonds. While the primary structure of transglutaminases is not conserved, they all have the same amino acid sequence at their active sites and their activity is calcium-dependent. The protein encoded by this gene acts as a monomer, is induced by retinoic acid, and appears to be involved in apoptosis. Finally, the encoded protein is the autoantigen implicated in celiac disease.
Add 0.2ml of distilled water will yield a concentration of 500ug/ml.
Each vial contains 5mg BSA, 0.9mg NaCl, 0.2mg Na2HPO4, 0.05mg NaN3.
WB: The detection limit for TGM2 is approximately 0.1ng/lane under reducing conditions.
Tested Species: In-house tested species with positive results.
By Heat: Boiling the paraffin sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH6.0, for 20mins is required for the staining of formalin/paraffin sections.
Other applications have not been tested.
Optimal dilutions should be determined by end users.
