LAMP2 Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 56272 (clone GL2A7, ref. Granger BL et al. 1990, J Biol Chem 265: 12036-12403)
Format: 100ug in PBS, pH 7.4, purified by Protein G affinity chromatography, 0.09% sodium azide, 50% glycerol.
Lysosome-associated membrane proteins (LAMP1 and LAMP2) are major constituents of the lysosomal membrane. These two proteins have closely related structures with 37% sequence homology. Both are transmembrane glycoproteins localized primarily in lysosomes and late endosomes. LAMP2 has also been detected at the plasma membrane of cells undergoing differentiation and activation and in cells that secrete lysosomal hydrolases. Cell surface LAMP1 and LAMP2 promote adhesion of human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) to vascular endothelium which suggests that the LAMP proteins are involved in adhesion of PBMC to sites of inflammation. Defects in LAMP2 are associated with Danon disease.
Antigen: Gluteraldehyde-fixed mouse liver lysosomes
