Description :Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody

Species :

Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the ROCK2 protein and will not cross-react with other ROCK family members

Cited Applications :WB, ELISA, IF, IHC

Cross Reactivity :Human, Mouse and Rat

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :ROCK2 antibody was raised against a 15 amino acid synthetic peptide near the center of human ROCK2

Purification :Affinity chromatography

Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot analysis of ROCK2 in mouse brain tissue lysate with ROCK2 antibody at (A) 1 and (B) 2 ug/ml.

Sample Data :Immunohistochemistry of ROCK2 in mouse brain tissue with ROCK2 antibody at 5 ug/ml.

Scientific Background :ROCK2 is a ubiquitously expressed serine/threonine kinase localized in the nucleus that regulates cytokinesis, smooth muscle contraction, the formation of actin stress fibers and focal adhesions, and the activation of the c-fos serum response element (1). ROCK2 is an immediate downstream target of the small GTPase RhoA. ROCK2 may play a pivotal role in cardiovascular diseases such as vasospastic angina, ischemic stroke, and heart failure. Inhibition of ROCKs by statins or other selective inhibitors leads to the upregulation and activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) and reduction of vascular inflammation and atherosclerosis (2).
