Research Use Only
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Chromosome Location
Chromosome: 1; NC_000001.10 (27732126..27816669, complement). Location: 1p36.11
3D Structure
ModBase 3D Structure for Q05BU7
Species Reactivity
Human, Rat, Mouse
This antibody was affinity purified using WAVE2 (Central region) peptide (without carrier). The antibody detects a 78 kDa* protein corresponding to the molecular mass of WAVE2 on SDS-PAGE immunoblots of rat PC12 cells.
Affinity Purified
Rabbit polyclonal, affinity-purified antibody is supplied in 100 ul phosphate-buffered saline, 50% glycerol, 1 mg/ml BSA, and 0.05% sodium azide.
A synthetic peptide (coupled to KLH) corresponding to amino acid residues in the central region of human WAVE2. This sequence has high homology with similar regions in rat and mouse WAVE2, and has low homology to similar regions in WAVE1 and WAVE3.
Preparation and Storage
Store at -20 degree C. Do not aliquot. Stable for 1 year.
Other Notes
Small volumes of anti-WASF2 antibody vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Related Product Information for
anti-WASF2 antibody
The Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP) family is involved in various pathways that regulate actin cytoskeletal organization. This family includes WASP, N-WASP, and three WAVE/SCAR isoforms, WAVEs 1, 2, and 3. WAVE proteins play key roles in actin-mediated cell events, such as membrane ruffling and lamellipodia formation. WAVEs contain an Nterminal WAVE homology domain, a basic domain, a Proline-rich region, and carboxy terminal verprolin, cofilin, and acidic (VCA) region. WAVEs are thought to act downstream of the Rac GTPase, connecting Rac activation to induction of Arp 2/3-mediated actin polymerization. Regulation of WAVE activity can occur through tyrosine phosphorylation. Src phosphorylation of WAVE1 at Tyr-125 enhances binding to the Arp2/3 complex, and is required for WAVE inhibition of Arp2/3-mediated stress fiber formation. By contrast, WAVE2 phosphorylation of Tyr-150 by Abl may enhance Arp2/3 complex actin nucleation and microspike formation in fibroblasts. Thus, site-specific tyrosine phosphorylation may be important for controlling specific activities of WAVE proteins.

NCBI Summary for WASF2
This gene encodes a member of the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein family. The gene product is a protein that forms a multiprotein complex that links receptor kinases and actin. Binding to actin occurs through a C-terminal verprolin homology domain in all family members. The multiprotein complex serves to tranduce signals that involve changes in cell shape, motility or function. The published map location (PMID:10381382) has been changed based on recent genomic sequence comparisons, which indicate that the expressed gene is located on chromosome 1, and a pseudogene may be located on chromosome X. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq]
UniProt Comments for WASF2
WAVE2: Downstream effector molecule involved in the transmission of signals from tyrosine kinase receptors and small GTPases to the actin cytoskeleton. Promotes formation of actin filaments. Part of the WAVE complex that regulates lamellipodia formation. The WAVE complex regulates actin filament reorganization via its interaction with the Arp2/3 complex. Binds actin and the Arp2/3 complex. Interacts with BAIAP2. Component of the WAVE2 complex composed of ABI1, CYFIP1/SRA1, NCKAP1/NAP1 and WASF2/WAVE2. Directly interacts with BRK1. Expressed in all tissues with strongest expression in placenta, lung, and peripheral blood leukocytes, but not in skeletal muscle. Belongs to the SCAR/WAVE family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
